Cable Detection EZiCAT i500xf-Series

SKU: EZiCAT i500xf
Price Units

The EZiCAT i500xf-Series range has been specifically designed with long distance tracing in mind. The ability to trace low transmitter frequencies provides a greater tracing range as well as the ability to locate camera inspection systems.

The EZiCAT i500xf-Series range makes locating underground utilities including power cables, street lighting, telecoms, conductive pipework and camera inspection systems easier than ever before, increasing your on-site safety and ultimately saving you time and money.

EZiCAT i500xf-Series Benefits

  • State of the art digital signal processing technology (DSP).
  • Automatic controls – making the EZiCAT easy to use, requiring minimal user experience.
  • Mode Lock – locator starts in last mode of operation at maximum sensitivity. For ease of use when used with transmitter.
  • Hazard Zone feature indicating shallow buried service in Power, 8 kHz, 33 kHz Auto, 512 Hz, 640 Hz modes.
  • Inbuilt test function for testing hardware and software.
  • 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 spanner icon 12 months after first use.

EZiCAT i500xf-Series Flexibility

The EZiCAT xf locators have multiple modes of operation allowing users to have maximum control at their fingertips.

Auto Mode
Automatically locates power, radio and 33 kHz transmitter signals, helping to confirm the presence of services upon initial site occupation making cable detection easier and safer.

Transmitter Modes

  • 512 Hz & 640 Hz – Enables long distance tracing.
  • 8 kHz – Mid range distance tracing.
  • 33 kHz – Standard tracing frequency on avoidance locators, used for everyday site use.

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

Power Mode
Locates power signals radiated by energized cables which pose the most significant risk to excavation teams.

EZiCAT i500xf-Series Intelligence

Mode Lock
Locator starts in last mode of operation at maximum sensitivity, to simplify tracing.

Hazard Zone
Buried utilities close to the surface pose a safety risk to site works. The 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, allowing the operator to quickly and accurately pinpoint the service.

Signal Strength Indicator (SSI)
Enables the user to trace an individual service amongst a multiple of services. The numeric display shows the highest reading over the service which is connected to the EZiTEX Signal Transmitter. This ensures the user can follow the service without straying onto another. The SSI mode can also be used to trace the Dual Frequency Sonde with ease.

All the features of EZiCAT i500xf plus

Depth Indication
The EZiCAT i550xf features utility depth indication, when used in conjunction with the EZiTEX or Sonde. Operators can determine the depth of the buried utility down to 3 metres or the depth of a Sonde down to 9.9 metres.

Current Level Indication
Displays the amount of current flowing through a service helping to trace and verify the utility the EZiTEX is connected to.
