Radiodetection gC.A.T4 Data Logging Cable Avoidance Tool with GPS/GNSS

The Radiodetection gC.A.T4  Data Logging Cable Avoidance Tool with GPS/GNSS is ideal for excavation engineers map out buried power cables, telecoms cables, pipes and other underground building structures before digging up the ground.

The gCAT4 cable avoidance tool is the latest addition to the Radiodetection CAT4 range, featuring an internal GPS/GNSS which automatically logs the position of the instrument every second, alongside key location parameters to prove work history and analyse working practices. The integrated GPS system is designed to enable fast GPS satellite connections, even if the avoidance tool is used for only a few seconds at a time – with no user interaction needed.

In addition to the inbuilt GPS/GNSS receiver, the gCAT4 includes the following features as standard:

  • ‘SWING warning’ - ground-breaking feature warns operators of incorrect usage (excessive and rapid swinging of the instrument) to promote best working practices.
  • Data acquisition - log over a year’s worth of locating data that can be downloaded by USB and reported on using the optional CAT Manager Software package (available to select from above). Not only suitable for project management, but data can be analysed and used to highlight poor working practice.
  • CALSafe and service indication - once activated, the gC.A.T4 tool will automatically ‘lock-out’ upon setting a calibration expiry date. A service reminder indicator can also be set to count down 31 days to inform the user of an imminent calibration service.
  • 'StrikeAlert' - a feature that warns the operative of utilities that are situated at a shallow level underground that could threaten a possible ‘strike’ risk.

In order to detect underground utilities that may be too deep or far away for the gCAT4 to locate suitably by its own means, the instrument should always be used with Radiodection’s Genny4 Signal Generator, which induces a dual frequency into the ground in order for the gCAT4 to locate otherwise hidden services.

The Radiodetection gCAT4 can be used in one of the 4 user modes as below:

  • Avoidance mode - detect genny, power and radio signals at the same time
  • Power mode - detect EMF signals that surround live underground power cables
  • Radio mode - detecs long wave radio signals travelling along buried pipes/cables
  • Genny mode - receives signals created by the Radiodetection Genny4 Signal Generator

All of the C.A.T4 cable avoidance tools feature ‘Dynamic Overload Protection’. This means the instrument filters out nuisance electrical ‘noise’, which can be generated in environments where electrical machinery is operated that can have an adverse affect on accurately locating underground services. The instrument features a high-contrast, backlit LCD screen that displays signal strengths on a ‘tidemark’ bargraph, ideal for even the novice user.
