To complement the EZiCAT SMARTREADY instruments, LOGiCAT VU app is available for Apple and Android compatible devices for uploading data in the field back to the office. LOGiCAT VU app is free to download and free to use.


Data reduces utility strikes

Capturing the data collected by locators provides improved understand of the path of a buried utilise within a site, where safe to excavate and enhanced site plans.

Combining locate data with analysis software provides a powerful and effective tool for monitoring site operations. Being able to monitor the instruments usage allows operators to work smarter, improving how the instrument is operated, and providing evidence of working to best practice.


EZiCAT SMARTREADY Features GPS Receiver & Datalogging

The EZiCAT 750i SMARTREADY provides the latest digital locator technology, with on-board data storage and GPS/GNSS positioning.

The data logging feature records the locators’ activity with a geographical position. The recorded data can be uploaded in the field through a mobile device and relayed back to the office for post processing.

With the LOGiCAT VU software, locate data can be overlaid onto digital maps to show where the locator was used and the path of the survey.

“Deploying Cable Detection’s EZiCAT cable locators and LOGiCAT VU software, major contractors are reporting that utility strikes are being eliminated.” Comments Ian Guest, Marketing Manager. “Communication to mobile devices allows data to be transferred from the field back to the office.
