RadioDetection CAT4+ Cable Avoidance Tool with Depth Estimation and StrikeAlert ( EN31)

The RadioDetection CAT4+ is designed to safely locate buried utilities, as well as telecoms, street lighting and CAT V cable. Using the Radiodetection CAT4+ allows the user to dig more safely and find more buried utilities. 

Reduce cable strikes 

Coupling the unit with a genny further reduces the risks of cable strikes. 

The CAT4+ retains all the features of the CAT4, with additional of depth estimation and strikealert. Depth can be estimated from either the Genny signal or Sonde. Simply press the button under the screen to display the estimated depth.

Simply to use

The unit is designed to be used with just one hand for ease of use. The on / off trigger, mode selection and sensitivity dial are all within easy reach of each other. The loud speaker is removable for use in noisy environments if required. An automatic back light provides visibility in all conditions. A simple to read bargraph allows the operator to quickly spot a peak making detection of small diameter cables possible.
