The Network Rail approved cable locator is suitable for a wide range of applications and can be used with the EZiTEX signal transmitters and EZiSYSTEM accessories for increased accuracy and applications.


The EZiCAT i550 is ideal to use before any excavation work to avoid striking a buried utility, especially if you need an estimation of the depth of a utility. This locator will increase your on-site safety, save you time, through the unique 'Automatic Pinpointing' feature, and save you money by reducing cable strikes.

You can use the locator to detect a number of different cables or pipes:

  • Non-conductive pipes or cables (including; clay, concrete etc.) when used in conjunction with Cable Detection's accessories and/or EZiTEX signal transmitter to detect them.

Please Note: If you need an estimation of the depth of a utility you will need to use the EZiCAT i550 in conjunction with one of the EZiTEX signal transmitters.
