CAT and Genny
Cable Avoidance Tools
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’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.
C.A.T Manager is a software suite designed to offer online or local analysis of usage behaviours, explore surveyed locations using Google Maps, and produce surveys and usage reports. Data can be exported and shared as KML or CSV files.
The PC version offer the ability to keep fleets up-to-date with the latest firmware and in calibration.
Near-real time monitor of gC.A.T4 and Genny4 fleets is possible using the Android or iOS app and the cloud based C.A.T manager Online.
