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.
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.
