Cable Detection EZiCAT i650

Cable avoidance tool with service depth indication and Bluetooth.

Cable Detection EZiCAT i550 Cable Detection EZiCAT i500 - Depth indication & data transfer

The new EZiCAT i600 and i650 provide a unique data capture and on board memory function, allowing verification of the locators use and the ability to recall records following a near miss or service strike or similar incident.

With the unique LOGiCAT Software, records can be retrieved and collated helping to increase on site safety, whilst identifying training needs.

The EZiCAT is easy to use and specifically engineered for tough site conditions.

The EZiCAT i650 - Overview

Cable Detection EZiCAT i550 - Auto mode

Bluetooth Connectivity

Bluetooth wireless connectivity allows the EZiCAT i650to integrate seamlessly with mobile mapping technology to log survey data, in addition to enabling wireless Bluetooth data transfer.

Cable Detection EZiCAT i550 - Power mode

Data Logging

Record and store up to 80 hours of records. These logs can be transferred via Bluetooth to a PC for analysis. The locators are capable of storing approximately 80 hours of records.

Cable Detection EZiCAT i650 - Hazard Zone

Hazard Zone

The new feature which indicates the presence of a shallow buried service in power, 8 & 33 kHz modes, (within approximately 30cm) alerting users to the increased risk.

Cable Detection EZiCAT i650 - Power mode

Power Mode (Default Mode)

Starts in Power Mode - ensuring the most potentially dangerous current carrying services are detected first
for maximum operator safety.

Cable Detection EZiCAT i650 - Auto mode

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!

Cable Detection EZiCAT i650 - Power mode

Radio Mode

Traces signals originating from distant radio transmitters. These signals penetrate the ground and are reradiated by buried conductive services.

Cable Detection EZiCAT i650 - Depth Indication

Depth Indication - with the EZiTRACE Signal Generator

The EZiCAT i550 features utility depth indication, when used in conjunction with the EZiTRACE or Sonde in8 or 33 kHz modes. Operators can determine the depth of the buried utility, providing a clear advantage when conducting ground surveys.

Cable Detection - Getting Started

Getting started with Cable Detection

Important points to consider before you start locating buried cables and pipes.

How to find underground utilities not giving off a signal

How to find underground utilities not giving off a signal

Not all underground utilities are live and giving off signals. These buried cables and pipes can not be found by using a cable avoidance tool (CAT) alone, you need to use a signal transmitter to apply a signal to the utility in order to locate it with the CAT.

How to do a sweep search to locate underground cables and pipes

How to do a sweep search to locate underground cables and pipes

The sweep search is the most reliable way of detecting and pinpointing any buried cables or pipes. The sweep search involves going two ways over a marked out area, each way a right angle to the other ensuring the locator will pass over the utility and detect the signal at least once during the search.

How to locate and trace buried non-metallic cables and pipes using a Sonde

How to locate and trace buried non-metallic cables and pipes using a Sonde

Non-metallic pipes cannot be detected using the standard locating method or sweep search because they don’t give off a detectable signal. Therefore you will need to thread an accessory into the utility to trace its location. The dual frequency sonde is ideal for this use.

How to locate or trace a specific buried cable or pipe

How to locate or trace a specific buried cable or pipe

Safely identify and locate a specific live utility. In areas where buried utilities are highly congested (e.g. city centre) this is a safe and easy method to identify what utility is running where and in what direction. Standard locating methods will tell you where there are buried cables and pipes in your excavation area, but not what the type of utility it is. This method helps to overcome this issue.

What is a EZiCAT and why do I need one?

Every year site workers are injured due to inadvertently striking buried utilities such as electricity cables or gas pipelines. Obtaining accurate information about the location of buried utilities has never been more essential to protect employees and equipment during any excavation project.

Local legislation normally prescribes the use of a locating device before any kind of excavation takes place. It makes perfect sense to search for, trace and mark all services before work commences.

With the EZiSYSTEM users can detect buried utilities with ease. EZiSYSTEM has been specifically designed to reduce human error and to increase site safety with its wealth of intelligent and unique features.

How does the EZiCAT locate?

The EZiCAT i600 and i650 locate buried conductive services by receiving electromagnetic signals which radiate from them.

The EZiCAT’s intelligent software interprets the signal data and provides the operator with an audible and visual response to the location and direction of
buried utilities. The operator can mark the ground or use a GIS mapping device* to note the location.
