  3. Upload eC.A.T4 or gC.A.T4 usage data to the C.A.T Manager Online system



eC.A.T4 and gC.A.T4 locators are equipped with an automatic recording system which stores up to 2 years’ worth of usage data in its internal memory. When the locator’s memory is full the recording system will start overwriting the older records.

Data stored includes parametric information about the settings of the device (time, mode, gain, etc.), the signals it is receiving and any alerts being generated. gC.A.T4 models will store location information if a GPS signal is available. All parameters are logged once per second when the locator is used.

Users can use C.A.T Manager for Windows PC to quickly retrieve usage data and stored them in the C.A.T Manager online for storage or data analysis.
