As with all our cable locators the EZiCAT i550 is robust and easy to use. Packed full of all the well-known, beneficial features included in the EZiCAT i500 but with the additional benefit of depth estimation.

The EZiCAT i550 makes avoiding and locating buried utilities an easy and efficient task. It's simple to operate, so you can just press the trigger and start locating.

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:

  • Electricity cables Data / telecomms cables.
  • Conductive pipes (including; steel, cast iron etc.)
  • 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.

Product Details

EZiCAT Intelligent Features
Automatic controls, making the EZiCAT easy to use, requiring minimal user training.

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

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

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!

Hazard Zone
Buried utilities close to the surface pose a significant safety risk to site works. The new Hazard Zone function provides an additional warning to 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 for a period of time, allowing the operator to quickly and accurately pinpoint the service position.

Built-in test function
Allowing operators to test the hardware and software functionality of the EZiCAT before use.

Service Due indicator
Wrench icon displayed after 12 months.

Highly visible digital LCD display
with built-in light sensor, automatically enabling the backlight in dark conditions.

Robust, light weight design
EZiCAT i‐Series locators are specifically engineered for tough site conditions.
