Radiodetection Cable and Pipe Locators

Radiodetection Precision Locators

Locating and protecting buried infrastructure are key operations for many industries, and locator technicians need reliable equipment that can be used all day, every day in tough environments. They demand tools that can deliver efficient operations, high levels of safety and precise and accurate measurements. Radiodetection’s Precision Locators are designed to meet these demanding requirements.

The Precision Locator Ranges include:

(NEW) RD8200 and RD7200 Cable and Pipe Locators.. Radiodetection’s flagship ranges locate cables and pipes quickly and accurately to help increase operators’ productivity and prevent damage to buried infrastructure

RD8100MRx and RD7100MRx Cable, Pipe and RF Marker Locators.. Our RF marker locators combine the ability to find buried Markers with finding underground cables and pipes, including simultaneously.

RD5100 Cable and Pipe Locators.. These cable and pipe locators are dedicated to users in the water and gas industries. To achieve full performance these locators must be used with our TX-5 and TX-10 signal transmitters. Plastic pipes can be found by using our range of transmitting Sondes.

Since 1977 Radiodetection’s locator and transmitter products have been designed and built in the UK. They are all subjected to a rigorous test regime and quality checks before leaving our factory, continuing our long tradition of high quality and reliability.

RD7100MRx – RD8100MRx RF Marker Ball Locator



Radiodetection RD8100MRx and RD7100MRx (RF) Radio Frequency Marker Locators deliver fast, accurate marker locating as well as the ability to locate cables and pipes. Both locators offer optional GPS logging.

Radiodetection’s range of precision locators builds on the high-performance and ergonomics of the RD7100MRx+ and RD8100MRx platforms, and is aimed at locate professionals and utility companies who need to detect utility RF (Radio Frequency) markers (also known as EMS or Omni-marker™) alongside buried infrastructure.

*Measure depth continually and automatically…

Featuring TruDepth™, Radiodetection’s unique automatic depth measurement system, and a combined utility and marker locating mode, the marker locator range delivers faster and more accurate surveys.

*Optional internal and external GPS links…

The built-in GPS option, allows customers to conveniently add positional data to their survey measurements without the need to carry additional equipment. Alternatively all units feature Bluetooth® to allow automatic linkage with an external GPS device. RD8000 models offer easy retrieval of saved measurements via USB and export into common file formats such as KML for Google Earth.

*Data Logging…

Monitoring usage, improving best practice and providing proof of work done is enabled by the automatic data logging on selected models. Every second, key locator parameters are saved into the unit’s non removable internal memory.

Up to one year of saved data can be retrieved and analyzed by connecting via USB to a PC running RD Manager, the software companion to the marker locator range. On GPS models there is the added benefit of recording survey locations.

*Familiar user interface…

Adopting the Radiodetection range is straightforward as it utilizes the same screens and operations as the established RD7000MRx and RD8000MRx ranges, and can be used with any of their accessories or transmitters*


RD5100 Cable and Pipe Locator.

Tracing buried pipes and cables, whether to locate faults or to avoid utilities during excavation work, can present major difficulties. This can be made even worse in cases where a pipe has rubber seals, insulators or even gaps between sections. These problems, if not overcome, can result in costly repairs, delays and in some instances personal injury. The RD5100 Series has been designed to address these issues, specifically addressing the concerns and challenges of users such as those in the Water and Gas Industries locating buried pipes and cables.
