NEW!  Radiodetection’s  RD5100 Locators
Series: Easy-to-use range of Precision Pipe and Cable Locators

Ease of use of Radiodetection’s new RD5100 range of precision locator products addresses the concerns and challenges of users such as those in the Water and Gas Industries locating buried pipes and cables. Locating and marking buried pipes and cables quickly, accurately and easily minimises downtime during repair and maintenance activities. It also minimises damage which can be costly and potentially dangerous.

Radiodetection is pleased to announce the RD5100 Series of precision pipe and cable locators which combine ease of use that will provide the occasional user with the accuracy, repeatability and reliability that professional locating technicians have come to expect from Radiodetection’s locator products. Tracing subsurface utilities can often present major difficulties and this can be made even worse where a pipe has rubber seals, insulators or gaps between sections. 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.

The RD5100 Series consists of three kits, each offering Guidance Mode to guide users in their locating tasks. Guidance Mode displays directional information alongside depth and current information to help find the utility and at the same time ensure the correct target is being traced. This method simplifies operation and enables rapid ground coverage. RD5100 Series is built on Radiodetection’s pedigree for performance, quality and durability and is backed with a three year warranty through product registration. RD5100 Series supersedes RD5000 Radiodetection’s RD5000 products will be phased out with the introduction of the RD5100 Series that provides improvements in performance, capabilities and options.

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.

Guidance Mode:
Guidance Mode allows you to rapidly follow the path of a buried utility. Intuitive proportional arrows, a directional ‘needle’ and differentiated audio tones guide you along the target pipe or cable.

TruDepth™
Depth readings are only indicated when the RD5100 locator is correctly oriented above the target cable, pipe or sonde.

The RD5100H2O and RD5100S are available in Imperial and Metric versions, while the RD5100H2O+ model can be customised using the menu to work in either units of measure.

Compass
Visually indicates orientation of the target cables.
Allows the operator to quickly and easily follow the target line.
Maximizes depth measurement accuracy by ensuring the locator is correctly with the target line.

Dynamic Overload Protection
Extends the RD5100’s locate capability into areas where other products fail.
Automatically filters out large and unwanted signals while ensuring accurate location of the target utility.
Particularly useful in electrically noisy environments such as power sub stations or near overhead high-voltage cables.

Audio tones
When in Guidance Mode a continuous tone to the left of the target and an
intermittent tone to the right helps guide you towards the target.

Depth and Current
A simultaneous read-out on active lines for confidence you are following the correct target.

iLOC
iLOC is an advanced Bluetooth link between the RD5100H20+ locator and the 10W transmitter
iLOC allows the operator to control the transmitter remotely.
Less time walking and more time locating.

Current Direction (4k CD, H20+ only)
Current Direction is a powerful tool that augments the capabilities of pipe and cable locators to help operators pick out their target line from others nearby. Using fundamental properties of electromagnetism, 4K CD allows you to locate your utility quickly, and eliminate wasted time following false trails.
