A Cable Avoidance Tool used to locate buried cables and pipes. The C.A.T3 utilises the latest technologies to bring you the most optimised cable avoidance tool in the market place today.
AvoidanceScan™ - Allows the user to sweep an area searching for Power, Radio and Genny signals simultaneously.
StrikeAlert™ - Alerts the user to shallow power cables by flashing the ALERT icon on the display.
Enhanced Signal Processing
Gives the C.A.T3 the ability to reject unwanted signals to a level never achieved before.
The auto switching backlight minimises misreading information from the meter.
The New C.A.T3 uses just two D Cell Batteries which are compatible with the Genny3 batteries means. New battery low indicator alerts when battery is getting low.

Genny_ is a signal transmitter used in the detection of buried pipes and cables. By applying a unique signal to the pipe or cable the Genny_ allows the C.A.T._ to give depth indication and to trace the service along a road or through a congested area. Genny_ is compatible with all versions of 33kHz C.A.T.
