RadioDetection gCAT4+ Cable Avoidance Tool with Depth; Data Logging; SWING; Strike Alert; CALSafe; GPS

Radiodetection‘s CAT4+ and Genny4 range enables operators to work more efficiently, more safely, and to manage their CAT4+ and Genny4 fleet more effectively.

gCAT4+ adds GPS position to the usage data recorded. Bluetooth connectivity allows seamless transfer of usage data to the CAT Manager Online cloud based system for near real-time monitoring of operators’ performance (using the Android or Apple app).


gCAT4+ Key Features As Standard:

  • Metric Depth
  • Avoidance mode for rapid surveying - Simultaneously search for and pinpoint Genny, Power and Radio signals.
  • Genny signal locate - With on-demand estimation of the depth4 of buried utilities.
  • Power signal locate - Detects the electromagnetic fields generated by loaded power cables.
  • Radio signal locate - Detects long-range radio signals as they travel along buried cables and pipes.
  • Small diameter locate frequency
  • eCert - Forms part of an annual service regime and is activated through the CAT Manager PC software.
  • Dynamic overload protection
  • StrikeAlert - Warns of shallow buried utilities, improved in CAT4+ to minimise false alerts
  • Data acquisition
  • Service due indicator - Countdown from 31 days before due.
  • Swing warning - Detects incorrect usage/careless working practices such as excessive or rapid swinging.
  • Calsafe - Enabled units can be set to automatically deactivate on expiry of the defined calibration interval.
  • Bluetooth Low Energy - Fully integrated data logging memory, GPS/GNSS receiver and Bluetooth Low Energy options.
  • GPS/GNSS - Automatically log the position of the CAT alongside key locate parameters each second to prove work history and analyse working practices.
  • High speed USB 2.0 data connection - Connect to a PC to configure CAT settings, run an eCert, and to rapidly transfer usage data from your gCAT4.
