    Product Information
    Detect More, Detect Faster
    The new C.A.T4 digital platform delivers highly refined locate capabilities, specifically designed to help the operator find more buried utilities. The C.A.T4 Avoidance Mode™ lets the operator check an intended excavation area for Power, Radio and Genny signals, and pinpoint located utilities in a single scan. Features such as the bargraph 'tidemark' enable an operator to quickly spot a peak response and zero-in on a buried conductor.

    The new Genny 4 (optional), with a new integrated logic design, provides a class-first simultaneous dual-frequency signal output design. Alongside the familiar 33kHz locate signal for general purpose locates, the Genny 4 transmits a second frequency designed to facilitate location of small diameter cables such as telecoms and street lighting, including spurs. For tricky locates, the new power boost function enables the locate signal to travel further and deeper, and couple onto utilities more easily.

    Dig More Safely
    Radiodetection’s proprietary StrikeAlert™ has been improved to reduce the number of shallow cable strikes. The C.A.T4 guides users towards better and safer working practices through its optional SWING™ Rate detector and Service Due date warning.

    Optional data acquisition capabilities allow Plant Supervisors to administer their fleet more safely and effectively by providing comprehensive logs of C.A.T4 usage for analysis and personnel development.

    StrikeAlert™ (optional)
    Minimise the risk of hitting a shallow cable with the optional StrikeAlert™ which has been enhanced and optimised to reduce the instances of false warnings.

    Dynamic Overload Protection
    Radiodetection’s unique digital signal processing capabilities equips the C.A.T4 with the ability to reject electrical interference. Dynamic Overload Protection gives C.A.T4 series products the ability to continue operating in electrically challenging areas, such as near substations and under power cables, where other locators’ detection circuitry may be overloaded and no longer function.

    Avoidance Mode™ 
    Sweep an area of Power, Radio and Genny signals simultaneously, saving time. C.A.T4 lets operators control the sensitivity of each mode/signal, enabling buried utilities to be pinpointed in a single pass, while Real Sound provides audio feedback derived directly from the utility located, easing identification to maximise speed whilst maintaining safety.

    eCert provides a fast and thorough test of key circuitry elements within C.A.T4, and validates their validation performance against the original factory calibration over the internet.

    eCert™, activated through the C.A.T Manager software, provides a fast, thorough and convenient test of the key locating circuitry within C.A.T4, and validates its performance against the original factory calibration. Following an eCert test pass, a Radiodetection Calibration Certificate for that C.A.T4 can be printed or saved.

    What's more, C.A.T Manager can reproduce the original factory calibration certificate, or any eCert certificates that it has produced, on demand.

    For a complete maintenance package, Radiodetection also offers exhaustive factory-backed service and recalibration options including full mechanical integrity inspection and function testing.

    High Visibility Display with Backlight
    The C.A.T4’s high visibility display helps to minimise the possibility of misreading critical information from the unit. The high contrast and automatic backlight illumination provide optimum visibility in all light conditions.

    C.A.T Manager™ Software (optional)
    C.A.T4 locators are supported with the dedicated C.A.T Manager software package. This Windows® PC program allows plant, fleet and site managers to minimise down time by performing software upgrades, sending a service request or reproducing calibration certificates. To match individual preferences or intended use, C.A.T Manager can disable or enable C.A.T4 features such as depth estimation and warnings. User-editable fields enable plant/fleet codes and other details to be stored on the unit, simplifying records and traceability.

    Genny4 Signal Boost
    The Genny 4 offers, alongside its standard power mode, a Signal Boost feature which increases the output signal by up to 10 times allowing you to locate over extra distance and depth. Additionally, the simultaneous Small Diameter Locate frequency design aids detection of smaller cables including spurs.

    Reverse Compatibility
    CAT 4 and Genny 4 are compatible with all CAT 3 and Genny 3 accessories.

    Note: All CAT4 and Genny4 products are Network Rail approved.
