State-of-the-art digital signal processing technology (DSP) for precision service locating.
Automatic controls - making the EZiCAT easy to use, requiring minimal user experience.
Starts in Power Mode - ensuring the most potentially dangerous current carrying services are detected fast for maximum operator safety.
Hazard Zone - the new feature which indicates the presence of a shallow buried service in power, 8 and 33kHz modes (within approx. 30cm) alerting users to the increased risk.
In-built test function - allowing operators to test the hardware and software functionality of the EZiCAT before use.
High contrast LCD screen with built-in light sensor, automatically enabling the backlight in dark conditions.
Robust, lightweight design, specifically engineered for tough site conditions.
Service Due Indicator - supporting customer planned maintenance schedules or quality systems by displaying a wrench icon after 12 months.
Auto Mode: Automatically locates power or radio signals, helping to confirm the presence of services upon initial site occupation making cable detection easier and safer.
Generator Modes (8 and 33kHz): Locates a specific signal applied by the EZiTRACE dual frequency signal generator to a metallic underground conductor.
Radio Mode: Traces signals originating from distant radio transmitters. These signals penetrate the ground and are reradiated by buried conductive services.
Power Mode (default mode): Locates power signals radiated by energised cables which pose the most significant risk to excavation teams.
Hazard Zone: Buried utilities close to the surface pose a significant safety risk to site works. The new Hazard Zone function provides an additional warning of the close proximity of buried services, alerting users to the immediate danger.
Pinpoint Assist: Maintains the highest peak reading obtained on the signal strength indicator for a period of time, allowing the operator to quickly and accurately pinpoint the service position.
Bluetooth Connectivity: The EZiCAT i-series locators can be purchased with the added benefit of Bluetooth connectivity. It will allow the EZiCAT to integrate seamlessly with mobile mapping technology to log survey data.
Enhanced Sonde Detection: EZiCAT i-series feature numeric signal strength readouts, specifically designed for easy sonde location. The highest number displayed indicates the exact position of the sonde beneath the ground.
