Radiodetection CAT4 Plus Cable Locator Avoidance Tool is the newest improvement and successor to Radiodetection CAT 3 Plus underground cable locator. The CAT4 help to locate buried cables; therefore, reduce the number of cable strikes and more safely.
- Simultaneous dual frequency – for precise location of small diameter cables
- Dynamic Overload Protection – for betters signal recognition near power lines
- Avoidance mode – simultaneous search in power and radio mode, as well as recognizing signal coming from Genny4
- Strike Alert – for warning of shallow cables nearby
- SWING waning – to warn of incorrect usage (on certain models only)
- Data logging and GPS (on certain models only)
- Bluetooth communication (on certain models only)
- CALSafe - calibration interval scheduling (on certain models only)
The Radiodetection CAT 4 plus cable locator works alone and with Genny4 signal transmitter. When working alone, the locator can find energized cables with 50/60 Hz frequency (power mode), find cables and objects re-emitting radio frequency (radio mode).
The Radiodetection Genny4 signal transmitter ads two additional modes of cable detection. Active frequency (33 Hz), when the transmitter is connected to a cable.
The signal transmitter can also be switched to broadcast signal directly to ground (passive mode).
In this mode, all underground cables and metallic non-ferrous object pick up the signal then re-emit it toward the surface. CAT4 locator finds underground utilities, when you scan an area in proximity to the signal transmitter.
The broadcast mode is most popular was of searching for cables and non-ferrous metallic objects, before you dig. Construction companies use that more frequently. It does not pin-point to a cable location, but finds cables before excavation.
Radiodetection CAT4 Plus is the best cable locator in its class. The CAT4 Plus Cable Locator requires a purchase of GENNY4 Transmitter for proper operation and location of cables, when utilizing all locating modes. Radiodetection is a registered trademark of SPX Corporation.
