C.A.T4™ and Genny4™

The C.A.T4™ and Genny4™ range represents the latest evolution of the highly popular Cable Avoidance Tools and Signal Generators, as pioneered by Radiodetection, enabling operators to work more efficiently, more safely and to manage their C.A.T4 and Genny4 fleet more effectively.

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 Genny4 Signal Generator, 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 Genny4 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.

Network Rail use

The C.A.T4 Cable Avoidance Tool, the Genny4 Signal Generator, and their accessories are approved for use on the UK’s national rail infrastructure, managed by Network Rail.

C.A.T4 and Genny4 are accepted for use on Network Rail infrastructure within the defined scope of acceptance and any specific conditions in the certificate. They must be maintained in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations.

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.

C.A.T4 is a safety-critical precision instrument and the optional 30-day countdown to the Service Due date, CALSafe™ and innovative eCert™ on-line system calibration validation capabilities are designed to reinforce company and recommended service policies.

Reverse Compatibility

C.A.T4 and Genny4 are compatible with all C.A.T3 and Genny3 accessories.
