    Cat3 Underground Cable Avoidance Tool

    Available separately are:,Cable Detection Kits (CAT3V or CAT3+),Individual Avoidance Tools (CAT3V or CAT3+),Individual Transmitters (Genny3)

    CAT3V Kit contains: CAT3V, Genny3, plug connector, signal induction clamp and carry bag
    CAT3+ Kit contains: CAT3+, Genny3, plug connector, signal induction clamp and carry bag. CAT+ features Active Depth.
    CAT3+ Avoidance Tool with active depth indication
    Genny3 Transmitter: Applies a pulsed, distinct locate signal to a cable or pipe to identify and trace underground utilities

    Cat3 Operating Modes

    Power: Detects the radiated emissions from a live power cable
    Radio: Detects the energy of ambient VLF signals reflected by underground metallic objects such as pipes and metal sheathed cables
    Active: Detects a specific high frequency signal that is injected into the cable or pipe by a dedicated transmitter unit (GENNY3 ). This is the best option for high accuracy location
    AvoidanceScanTM Mode – This powerful mode, allows the user to search in Power, Radio and Genny modes simultaneously for improved safety and faster surveys
    StrikeAlertTM – Alerts the user to shallow power cables (upto 300mm in depth) by flashing an alert icon and audio warning on the display
    Auto switching backlight minimises the effect of poor lighting conditions and allows the continued use of the RD2000+ into the night
    Real sound – the sound you hear is derived from the signal radiating from the cable or pipe, helping the user distinguish the signal from random background noise.
    Large controls for finger tip operation even when wearing gloves
    Rugged Waterproof construction
    Detachable loudspeaker for use in noisy conditions
    Battery powered with battery indicator – operating from just two D cells gives maximum use at minimum cost. In addition it also creates compatibility with the Genny3 batteries minimising the need to carry so many batteries

    Note

    CAT3 and the Genny3 are backwards compatible, i.e. the CAT3 will work with older versions of Genny, and the Genny3 will work with older versions of the CAT.

    Cable Avoidance Tools

    Reliable cable avoidance systems to locate buried cables and metallic pipes and help prevent costly and potentially deadly cable hits. Twin differential antenna technology plus sophisticated signal processing techniques provides superior rejection of unwanted signals and accurate locate response for effective operation in congested sites, and sites with overhead cables.
