eCAT4 Data Logging Course

eCAT4 Data Logging CourseThe latest course in our range of Cable Avoidance Tool training covers the correct use and data logging functions for the Radiodetection eCAT4 & eCAT4+ Cable Avoidance Tools which combines all the ground breaking safety features of the Radiodetection CAT4 models with an array of advanced on-board data acquisitioning tools.

Developed as part of the Radiodetection CAT4 design, the eCAT4 incorporates the enhanced Avoidance Mode allows the operator to check an intended excavation area for Power, Radio and Genny signals simultaneously, pinpointing buried utilities in a single scan.

Features such as the bar-graph ‘tidemark’ enable an operator to quickly spot a peak response and zero-in on a buried conductor. Our eCAT4 Data Logging Course will instruct each delegate attending in the correct methods of use and understanding of these functions and features to ensure they use these instruments effectively and efficiently in the workplace. The additional 131kHz frequency provides a strong trace signal and a longer range when inducted by the Genny4. Whilst the optional StrikeAlert feature minimises the risk of hitting a shallow buried cables.
