RD8200G Cable and Pipe Locator

RD8200G Trimble™ Compatible Locator

Introducing the new Radiodetection RD8200G precision locator and transmitter.. Take the next step in locating buried infrastructure. Locating and protecting buried infrastructure is a key operation for many industries. 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.

Designed with operators in mind, the new RD8200 and RD7200 and their transmitters are our most advanced cable range of precision locators yet. Created and built in the UK, they are subjected to a rigorous test regime and quality checks before leaving our factory, continuing our long tradition of high quality and reliability.

The RD8200G offers the best set of new features to improve operational efficiency and adherence to best practice, including:

^RDMap™+ for easy and cm accurate utility mapping. Add positional data to your survey measurements with the integrated GNSS option, and use RD MAP+ to create in real time, detailed maps of buried utilities. Combine with a high accuracy external positioning device, such as the Trimble Catalyst RTK solution, to create high accuracy utility maps*. *Requires data connectivity and Google Maps. **Trimble Catalyst and RTK correction subscription required for high accuracy.

^Custom Frequencies for matching your RD8200 to a specific telecom network.
Up to 5 additional frequencies can be programmed into your locator to match it to the signals found on your target networks.

^Current Direction track the right line. Identify your target amongst a number of parallel utilities by applying a specialized CD signal from a Tx-10 transmitter. CD arrows displayed on the locator confirm you are tracing your target line.

^Power Filters™ works where other locators wont. When a transmitter can’t be connected, tracing individual power lines through dense networks can be a real challenge. Conflicting or powerful signals confuse or combine to create a wash of signal. A single key press enables the use of the harmonic properties of power signals to establish if a signal comes from one source, or from multiple cables which you can then trace and mark.

^Dynamic Overload Protection rejects unwanted interference. Automatically filters out interference, enabling use in electrically noisy environments such as near substations or overhead power lines.

^Industrial Grade Display for outdoor usage RD8200G locators and transmitters use transflective low power LCD technology that uses ambient light to improve screen readability in direct sun light and extend battery life.

^TruDepth™ and current readout, for extra assurance. Radiodetection’s TruDepth displays precise depth and current measurements, only when the RD8200 is correctly oriented above the target. Measurement consistency gives high confidence that the correct line is being followed.

^Swing Warning System to drive correct usage. Locators must be kept perpendicular to the ground for best accuracy. The RD8200 and RD7200 have a built-in gyroscopic measurement system, which alerts the user of excessive swing, driving correct usage.

^High Performance Audio System to allow operations in noisy environments. The new locators have a new waterproof speaker housing, positioned to provide maximum feedback to the operator and tuned for optimum resonance for the frequency tones chosen. Five power output levels assist technicians working in challenging environments.

^Vibration Feedback System to reduce the chance of missed warnings. The locator handle vibrates when alerts activate, leaving the operator to concentrate on the job at hand.

^Automatic Logging System to influence on-site behavior. The RD8200G records details on how, when and where it is used. This information can be utilized to drive best practices, identify training needs and maximize operator productivity.

^Bluetooth BLE Technology to be ready for a connected world. The new single or dual Bluetooth system offers a new connectivity platform designed to offer future upgrades and connectivity solutions. Radiodetection and their distributor partners can also offer local training, that can be customized to meet specific needs, as well as support to maximize business continuity and efficiency.

^Speed, Accuracy and Reliable Performance easy to setup and use. Sun light readable display, high performance audio system and vibration alerts for noisy environments
Sensitive and accurate signal processing for reliable results

^Adaptable in Challenging Environments. Ideal for congested underground infrastructures and rejects strong interfering signals. Identify target power cable in the presence of many.

^Technology Driven best on-site practise. Encourage correct locator handling for improved detection. Monitor field operations through the automatic usage logging feature. Proof of work to differentiate your operations from your competition and add value to your clients

^Ergonomic Design premium quality, rugged yet light weight and ergonomic. Designed and built to the highest standards in Great Britain. Self Test for confidence and trust in your locator measurements.
