SuperC.A.T

Cable Avoidance Tools

 

 

The SuperCAT4+ range of locators and transmitters uses a selection of passive, sonde and active frequencies designed to target specific buried assets. Using Radiodetection’s familiar C.A.T controls and display, minimal retraining is required to access these advanced capabilities.

For oil and gas pipes using a Cathodic Protection System, the CPS model can locate the rectified signal without needing an additional transmitter.

The model locates a range of sonde frequencies that can be matched to the challenges of finding water and drain pipes. A lower frequency sonde is useful to trace deep cast-iron pipes. Higher frequency sondes can be easier to distinguish in an electronically noisy urban environment.

SuperCAT4+ can be used to locate a comprehensive set of active frequencies to support the detection and tracing of different cable types in varied environmental conditions.  Higher frequencies such as the 131kHz or 65kHz can be used to find well-insulated utilities such as twisted-pair telecom cables or insulated pipe joints.  For long range locating of lower resistance cables, such as power lines, lower frequency options are available.

 

 

 
Features

 

Safety Built-In

All SuperCAT4+ odels come with a range of features designed to aid safe working practices.

 

 

TruDepth™

Indicates depth when the locator is oriented correctly    above the target cable, pipe or sonde for the most    accurate reading.

 

Dig more safely with StrikeAlert™

StrikeAlert warns the user to the possible presence        of shallow cables and utility lines in both Power and    Active Line modes.

Although work practices and guidelines insist power   cables are buried below a certain depth, a common    cause of cable strikes is unexpectedly shallow cables.

 

 

Dynamic Overload Protection

High levels of electrical interference, as found around substations and near high-voltage transmission cables can overload sensitive electronics. Dynamic Overload Protection filters this interference out, enabling   SuperCAT4+ to continue locating where other units  struggle.

 

 

Real Sound

The audio signals emitted by the SuperCAT4+ are    derived from the signals detected. Radio, Power and  Active signals can be easily distinguished from each  other, and from background noise, helping identification  of target utilities, and aiding differentiation of closely    co-located utilities.

 

 

 

 

Application

 

SuperCAT4+ CPS

• Locate pipelines protected by a Cathodic Protection System

 

Optimized for metal pipes including those that use rectified currents as part of their Cathodic Protection System. The CPS signal can be located and traced without the need to apply an additional transmitter signal to the pipeline.


SuperCAT4+S and T1-512/640

 Find Water and drain pipes

For the challenge of detecting and tracing buried pipes, the SuperCAT4+ S locates the wide range of sonde frequencies. Additionally, an active 33kHz frequency can be applied to a Flexitrace using a T1-512/640 for continuous signal tracing.
