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.
RD7200 RD8200 – Precision Locating
Target: Cable (Identification), Pipes (Location), Electrical (Sheath Faults, Shorts), Pipes (Metal Gas, Metal Water), Telecoms
RD8200 locators offer many features designed to drive correct usage and reduce utility damage. The RD7200 and RD8200 have been designed around the operator needs. The iconic industrial design provides an exceptionally well balanced, and light weight tool which is comfortable for extended periods of use.The all-industry locator, a versatile, high quality solution, suitable for a wide variety of difficult locating tasks.
Recognized as industry pioneers, Radiodetection has been offering its customers competitive advantages and operational efficiency through technology-leading solutions since 1977. Quality, accuracy and reliability are the foundations of Radiodetection’s unrivalled reputation in enabling operators to locate congested buried utilities quickly.
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.
