Avoidance Mode – Simultaneously search for and pinpoint Genny, Power and Radio signals for rapid surveying.
Genny Mode – Detects the signals transmitted by Genny4, with on-demand estimation of the depth5 of buried utilities.
Power Mode – Detects the electromagnetic fields generated by loaded power cables.
Radio Mode – Detects long-range radio signals as they travel along buried cables and pipes.
The 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 Genny4 provides a simultaneous dual-frequency signal output. Alongside the familiar 33 kHz signal for general purpose locates, the Genny4 transmits a specialised Small Diameter Locate frequency which facilitates location of utilities such as telecoms and street lighting, including spurs. For difficult locates, the Signal Boost function enables the Genny4 signals to travel further and deeper, and couple onto utilities more easily.
