Radiodetection’s SuperCAT4+ and T1 are easy to use, utility-specific locating tools with enhanced features for the challenges faced by particular industries.

Each model has been designed to meet the needs of a specific industry:

  • SuperCAT4+CPS – find oil and gas pipelines using rectified CPS signals.
  • SuperCAT4+S – use a range of sondes to find water and drain pipes, and telecom ducts.
  • SuperCAT4+ – Multi-frequency cable locator with transmitter options for high impedance telecom cables or low impedance power cables.

Locate and protect underground assets

Safe excavation relies on the accurate locating of buried assets. Failure to accurately identify utilities’ presence may result in damage to underground pipes and cables, which can lead to utility outages, costly repairs, and project delays. In some instances, personal injuries can result.

Detect more, reduce utility strikes

Each model of the SuperCAT4+ and T1 range is tailored to a utility:

  • For oil and gas pipes using a Cathodic Protection System, the CPS model can locate the rectified signal without attaching an additional transmitter.
  • The S model locates a range of sonde frequencies that can be matched to the challenges of finding water and drain pipes. Low-frequency sondes are used to trace cast-iron pipes. Higher frequencies sondes are used to trace non-metallic pipes and conduits.
  • 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, high resistance, utilities such as small core telecoms cables or insulated pipe joints. For long-range locating of lower resistance utilities such as power cables or metallic pipelines, lower frequency options are available.

Accessories to extend your capabilities

  • An array of accessories are available for the SuperCAT4+ range to apply signals safely and effectively to pipes and cables, including live cables.
  • Flexrods can be used to push a wide range of sondes up to 500’ (150m).
  • For non-conductive pipes or conduits, the T1-640 can be connected to a FlexiTrace enables continuous locating and tracing of non-metallic ducts or pipes, for up to 260’ (80m).
  • Signal clamps can be used to apply the T1 transmitter signal to a specific cable or pipe where a direct connection is not possible, for pipe or cable up to 220mm/8.5″ diameter without interrupting the supply.
  • Direct connection, the most effective method for connecting to a valve, meter, junction box or other access point. Live plug and cable connectors can energise difficult to locate cables such as power cables from private properties to the main distribution cable in the street.

Safety Built-In

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

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.

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, damage and possible injuries are unexpectedly shallow cables.

Automatic Depth Display

Automatically measure and display the depth in Active Line, Sonde or CPS modes if the environmental conditions are suitable for an accurate reading.

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 background noise, identifying target utilities and aiding differentiation of closely co-located utilities.
