C.A.T4 and Genny4: Main Features overviewFollow
C.A.T4 Locator Features
C.A.T4 Screen Features
The C.A.T4 screen displays the following features:
NOTE: The screen in gC.A.T4 models may remain active for up to 30 min, depending on the locator's settings. Refer to the GPS/GNSS Operation paragraph for further info.
When using the C.A.T4 in noisy environments, the speaker can be detached and held closer to the ear.
To avoid excessive noise exposure, hold the speaker no closer than 15cm (6") from the ear. Prolonged use in this position should be avoided.
Genny4 Transmitter Feature
Genny4 signals can be detected by all previous 33 kHz C.A.T models including C.A.T3.
C.A.T4 will also locate Genny3 signals.
Genny4 provides a second locate signal alongside the 33kHz signal which can be located by C.A.T4 to assist in locating smaller cables and spurs. Previous C.A.T models are not designed to locate this signal.
Using the Genny4
The Genny4 is used to actively apply a locate signal to pipes or cables. This signal can be traced using the C.A.T4 locator in either Avoidance Mode or Genny mode. Use of the Genny is strongly recommended, as passive power or radio signals may not be present, or detectable, on all pipes and cables.
Signal Boost Mode
The Signal Boost button will increase the output signal level to give better signal on the pipe or cable, and may increase the useable locate distance from the Genny4. In Signal Boost mode the Signal Boost LED will light. The Signal Boost switch toggles between high and normal output.
