EZiCAT i550

EZiCAT i550 With additional depth indication feature

Benefits

  • State-of-the-art digital signal processing technology (DSP).
  • Automatic controls – making the EZiCAT easy-to-use, requiring minimal user experience.
  • Power Mode start-up ensuring the most potentially dangerous current carrying services are detected first.
  • Hazard Zone feature indicating shallow buried service in power, 8 and 33 kHz modes, (within approximately 30cm) alerting increased risk.
  • Built-in test function for testing hardware and software.
  • Added benefit of utility depth estimation to 3m for additional survey information.
  • 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 planned maintenance schedules or quality systems by displaying a wrench icon after 12 months.

Hazard Zone
Buried utilities close to the surface pose a 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. The peak hold time can be adjusted between 0 – 5 seconds allowing the operator to quickly
and accurately pinpoint the service position.

Signal Service Indicator 
SSI enables the user to trace an individual service amongst a multiple of services. The numeric display shows the highest reading over this service, which has the EZiTEX signal transmitter connected to. This ensures the user can follow the service without straying to another.


Additional Features

Depth Indication
The EZiCAT i550 features utility depth indication, when used in conjunction with the EZiTEX in 8 or 33 kHz modes. Operators can determine the depth of the buried utility, providing an advantage when conducting ground surveys.
