Radiodetection C.A.T4 + Cable Avoidance Tool

The C.A.T4 series creation came from 30 years of research into Cable Avoidance Technology. All of the functionality necessary has been included to find both buried utilities that give off their own signals and utilities that don’t give away their own signals. The C.A.T4 Plus allows excavation professionals to craft a comprehensive map of the ground underfoot. This ensures strikes of buried utilities such as water pipes, gas pipes, electrical cables and other utilities don’t happen.

What does being the upgraded model mean?

Well the C.A.T4 Plus includes all of the functions that the original C.A.T4 has with an additional feature, depth estimation for more accurate determination of the buried utilities position.


*** Importantly please note that the C.A.T4 cable avoidance tool should predominantly accompany Radiodetection’s Genny4 Signal Generator. ***
*** This allows for hidden utilities that do not generate enough EMF or radio signal to detect the C.A.T4 alone. ***
***DO NOT use the C.A.T4+, eC.A.T4+ or gCAT4+ depth estimation function to decide if mechanical digging’s appropriate.***



Operating modes included as standard with the C.A.T4:

CAT4 Optional Extras Sheet.

Avoidance Mode

This allows you to simultaneously search for and pinpoint Genny, power and radio signals.

Genny Mode

Detects signals generated from a Genny4 signal generator, with on-demand estimation of buried utility depth (depth function depends on model selected).

Power Mode

On use detects Electromagnetic fields generated by the surrounding buried power cables.

StrikeAlert (Optional Extra)

The StrikeAlert feature presents a visible indication of utilities that are located close to the surface of the ground that are a risk if left undiscovered.


ECert technology allows calibration remotely via internet connection to Radiodetection

The C.A.T4 series of Cable Avoidance Tools are equipped with unique technology known as eCert. This allows the tool to connect to a PC and (through an internet connection to Radioconnection) assesses the unit to ensure all hardware and software’s working correctly. This can also extend the validity of the CAT4’s calibration certificate whenever you need it.
