The next generation of Cable Avoidance Tools, CAT 4 and Genny 4, build on over 30 years of cable avoidance expertise to enable operators to find more buried utilities, faster.
The CAT 4 Avoidance Mode lets the operator check an intended excavation area for Power, Radio and Genny4 signals, and pinpoint located utilities, in a single scan. The bar graph ‘tidemark’ enables the user to quickly spot and zero-in on a buried conductor. The Genny 4 provides a first-class simultaneous dual-frequency signal output. Alongside the familiar 33kHz signal for general purpose locates, the Genny 4 transmits a specialised Small Diameter Locate frequency which facilitates location of utilities such as telecoms and street lighting, including spurs. For difficult locations, the Signal Boost function enables the Genny 4 signals to travel further and deeper, and couple onto utilities more easily.
CAT 4’s Dynamic Overload Protection feature automatically filters out high levels of interference, allowing operators to continue working even in electrically noisy areas such as substations and under high-voltage cables – and requires no input from the operator.
