Pipe And Cable Locating Equipment: Equipment Spotlight

July 2013, Vol. 68, No. 7

Included in the C.A.T4 range are the eC.A.T4 series products, incorporating over a year's worth of data acquisition capacity, recording key locate parameters including mode used, Genny signal detection, control settings and warning statuses, to enable managers to rapidly verify correct usage and identify training needs. The new Avoidance Mode lets the operator check an intended excavation area for all locatable signals simultaneously, and pinpoint located utilities, in a single scan. The Dynamic Overload Protection feature enables operators to locate even in areas of high electrical interference, such as substations or under High Voltage cables. The new Genny4 provides a class-first dual frequency feature. Two frequencies are transmitted simultaneously to facilitate location of small diameter cables such as telecoms and street lighting, including spurs. For tricky locates, the new Power Boost function enables the locate signal to travel further and deeper, and couple onto utilities more easily. 877.247.3797, radiodetection.com
