The C.A.T4+ series is designed to find buried utilities faster with the C.A.T4 Avoidance Mode letting the user check an intended excavation area for Power, Radio and Genny signals, finding located utilities in a single scan.

The RD gC.A.T4+ is equipped with its own memory to store over a year's worth of key measurements and operation modes. The GPS receiver provides positional data logging every second to show where the operator was working and this information can then be exported in CSV, XLS or KML file types and used with map services such as Google Earth.

The SWING Warning included with the Radiodetection gC.A.T4+ warns the operator of incorrect usage, reducing the risk of cable strikes and storing this information in the data log.

Pair this C.A.T with the Genny4 to boost the signal and further enhance cable location to work over more distance and depth.

A comprehensive range of data can be logged, including:

  • Mode of Use
  • Genny/Power/Radio Signal Strengths
  • Date and Time of Survey
  • StrikeAlert and SWING Warning Statuses
  • Speed Over Ground
  • Location of Survey (Latitude/Longitude)
  • Bargraph Readout
  • Sensitivity Control Setting
  • Depth Measurements Made
  • Battery Status
  • Last/Next Calibration Date
  • Dynamic Overload Protection/Signal Overload Status
  • Angle of Use
  • Number of Satellites Received
  • Audio Status

Key Features

  • Professional underground utility locator designed to detect the signal of buried cables/utilites which generate a signal
  • Seamlessly works with the optional Genny4 Signal Generator to detect buried utilities such as pipes which don't generate their own signal
  • Comprehensive data acquisition and logging systems stores detailed information about surveys
  • Bluetooth wireless connection to your smartphone/tablet running the CAT Manager Online app to offer real-time cloud-based survey uploads
  • Backward compatible design - works with older Genny3 accessories
  • Depth Estimation function (gC.A.T4+ only) - calculates estimate depth of a buried utility
  • Sensitivity control knob to pick up on different signals
  • Built-in GPS/GNSS receiver uploads details on survey location to CAT Manager Online
  • Lightweight, impact-resistant ABS casing with protection to IP54 for all-weather operation
  • High contrast display with automatic backlight - includes bargraph tidemark to allow operators to quickly spot and zero-in on a buried conductor
  • High speed USB 2.0 data connection - connect to a PC to configure settings, run eCert calibration and rapidly transfer data to your PC
  • eCert Remote Calibration Validation - activates through the C.A.T Manager PC software, eCert provides fast, thorough and convenient testing of the key locating circuitry within the C.A.T4 and allows Radiodetection to calibrate the unit remotely
  • Dynamic Overload Protection - automatically filters out high levels of electrical interference to stop overloading and to ensure locating accuracy
  • Small cable locating - use the CAT4 and Genny4 to locate small diameter cables such as telecom twisted pairs, CATV feeds, spurs and drop-offs
  • Service Due Indicator - 31-day service countdown warning on startup
  • CalSafe - enabled units can be set to automatically deactivate on expiry of the defined calibration interval to ensure compliance with individual company policies
  • SWING Warning - alerts the user when the CAT4 is being used incorrectly, with data automatically stored in a log
  • Multiple operating modes - Avoidance, Genny, Power and Radio all included
  • Real Sound - the audio signals emitted by the gC.A.T4 are derived from the signals detected, allowing you to easily distinguish between Radio, Power and Genny signals
  • Genny4 Signal boost - increases the output signal by a factor of 10, enabling operators to locate utilities deeper and over greater distances
