In the 1970's C.A.T. (Cable Avoidance Tool) first illustrated the fact that a low cost and reliable avoidance tool could be used by anyone in need of preventing a costly and potentially deadly cable hit. Twin differential antenna technology enables interference rejection and improved locate response.

The key element of the C.A.T. is simplicity. Outside of some basic familiarity with the instrument no special skills are required.

Easy to use

  • Three operating modes Power Radio and Genny (transmitter)
  • Audible tone indicates position of a buried pipe or cable
  • Large controls and detachable loud speaker for use in noisy conditions


The Genny signal transmitter works with the C.A.T. (Cable Avoidance Tool). It supplies either a "direction connection" signal mode for optimum locate accuracy or an "induced" signal mode when direct connection access is not possible.
  • Light weight and rugged
  • Push button operation - connection mode selected automatically
  • Compact design with built in compartment for accessories
  • Connection lead, ground lead and ground stake supplied.
