CAT4 – Cable Avoidance Tool
Target: Cable (Location), Pipes (Metal Gas, Metal Water), Telecoms, Electrical
The latest range of Cable Avoidance Tool (CAT) and Signal Generator (Genny), pioneered by Radiodetection.
C.A.T4® and Genny4® products provide a comprehensive range of Cable Avoidance Tools helping professionals to drive best locating practice, to reduce the number of cable strikes, and to dig more safely.
The C.A.T4 is the standard model of the range. Using it with the Genny4 transmitter, experienced operators will be able to find more buried utilities, faster.
This model is equipped with an automatic recording system which stores up to 2 years’ worth of usage data in its internal memory. Data can be later retrieved and analysed using a USB lead and a PC.
This model adds GPS position to the usage data recorded. Bluetooth connectivity allows seamless transfer of usage data to the C.A.T Manager Online cloud based system for near real-time monitoring of operators’ performance.
Genny4 – Signal Generator
Target: Cable (Location, Depth), Pipes (Metal Gas, Metal Water), Telecoms, Electrical
Genny4’s patented simultaneous dual-frequency signal output facilitates location of small diameter cables such as telecoms and street lighting, including spurs. All C.A.T4 locator models have patented technology to detect both signals simultaneously. The power boost function in Genny4 enables the locate signal to travel further and deeper, and couple onto utilities more easily.
RD7100 RD8100 – Precision Locating
Target: Cable (Identification), Pipes (Location), Electrical (Sheath Faults, Shorts), Pipes (Metal Gas, Metal Water), Telecoms
The Precision Locate range of underground utility locators comprises: the fully-featured, multi-function RD8100 cable and pipe locator; the utility-specific RD7100 locator, the innovative RD7000M and RD8000M locators that combine the ability to find buried Markers with finding underground cables and pipes; and the single-frequency RD5000WL pipe locator for the water and gas industries. These locators must be used with our signal transmitters, TX-1, TX-5 and TX-10, to achieve full performance. Plastic pipes, frequently used to carry water or gas, can be found by using our range of transmitting Sondes.
Built on over 40 years of underground cable and pipe locator innovation, our precision-manufactured antennas and advanced digital processing enable operators to accurately detect even the extremely small signals associated with difficult to locate underground utilities.
RD1500 – Ground Penetrating Radar
Target: Pipes (Plastic Gas), Ducts Drains, Sewers
GPR (Ground Penetrating Radar) systems enable operators to detect underground utilities, particularly non-conductive pipes and ducts, using high-frequency Radar. When locating underground utilities, GPR can be a valuable complement to electromagnetic cable and pipe locators.
Radiodetection’s LMX100™ and LMX200™ innovative GPR systems both use ultra-wide band 250MHz, specifically chosen for effective utility locating. Our GPR products feature internal GPS and high resolution touch screens. For connectivity and ease of reporting, both offer on-board Wi-Fi and a USB port. Additionally, the LMX200™ allows users to create depth slices and review their locate path on screen while on site, and selectively enhance shallow/small, medium depth/size, or deep/large targets using the proprietary DynaQ™ technology
