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.
PWG – Pulse Wave Generator
Target: Pipes (Detection), Plastic Pipes (Location)
The PWG pipe locating system consists of a rechargable power pack and an electronic pulse generator (PWG) to be attached a hydrant. This system allows location of metallic or non-metal pipes. The pipe section does not need to be shut down during the location process.
The particular pipe section requires a minimum pressure of 2 bar, and
handling the system is very simple. No special skills required.
RD500 – Plastic Pipe Locator
Target: Plastic Pipes (Detection)
The Electronic Transonde is an easy to use method for locating non metallic domestic water services. The battery operated Transonde connects via a tap on the mains supply. The Transonde is used to vibrate the water as it passes through it and across an internal spring system sending a minute sound wave back along the pipe which can then be located using a ground microphone.
Gas Tracker – Plastic Gas Pipe Locator
Target: Plastic Gas Pipe (Location)
GasTracker™ is an instrument for locating and identifying buried plastic gas pipes. The method used is based on the propagation of a complex acoustic wave.
Thanks to the application-specific sensor and signal analysis software, it is able to locate the position and direction of a buried plastic pipe from the surface.
RD1500 – Ground Penetrating Radar
Target: Pipes (Plastic Gas), Ducts Drains, Sewers
RD1500 takes subsurface investigations to the next level, offering users Depth Slices as well as Line Views. These allow the user to review slices of the subsurface at different depths, displaying cables, pipes and other utilities in unprecedented clarity.
The RD1500 features internal GPS, on-board Wi-Fi, a high resolution touch screen as well as the proprietary FrequenSee™ technology which selectively enhances small/shallow, medium size/depth, or large/deep targets, or even all at once, for easier viewing and detection.
Mini reports can be generated and delivered directly from the survey site by connecting to a Wi-Fi network or by using a cell phone as a hotspot. Data can also be exported to a USB memory stick.
Target: Pipes, Ducts (Non Metallic)
The FlexiTrace reel holds 164′(50m) or 260’ (80m) of small diameter rod. The rod can be energised by a Radiodetection transmitter* or Genny and inserted into pipes as small as 12mm. It is used with a Radiodetection locator or C.A.T to find and trace small diameter plastic pipes etc.
