RD7000+ Precision Cable

Radiodetection’s RD7000+ Underground Utility Locator range delivers accurate, reliable and repeatable performance in an easy-to-use digital package.

The RD7000+ range offers four lightweight, easy to use locators, optimised for use in construction, pipeline, power and telecom industries. These locators are ergonomically designed to provide the operator with a device which is responsive and intuitive, while the large backlit LCD screen provides clear information in any light condition. The interface has easily identifiable icons, which are consistent across both the locator and transmitter range for ease of operation.

  • Centros™: RD7000+ locators are Centros™ enabled. Centros™ is a measurement engine based on more than 30 years of continuous development, combining new and innovative algorithms with tried and tested software in a high performance microprocessor. Centros™ improves locator accuracy and repeatability, delivering timely responsiveness.
  • Compass: Allows the target line to be quickly and easily followed by indicating the orientation of the target cable or pipe and the locator on the screen. This helps to improve accuracy when measuring depth.
  • Dynamic Overload Protection: Extends the RD7000+ locator capability into areas where other locators fail by automatically filtering out large and unwanted signals aiding accurate location even in electrically noisy environments.
  • Peak/Null Mode: Helps to identify the effects of distortion due to ground effects or nearby utilities. Simultaneous display of peak bar graph response and proportional null arrows allow a quick assessment of locate conditions.
  • Remote Calibration: Using the Windows software, locators can be checked for correct calibration and operation over the Internet without the need to return the RD7000+ for service. A calibration certificate can be saved, emailed or printed or a service can be booked should any issue be detected.
  • Extended Warranty: Radiodetection offers a free upgrade to a 3 year extended warranty on RD7000+ locators and transmitters (product must be registered within 3 months of service). Registration also offers free product software and feature upgrades.
  • Marker Locator: The RD7000+ marker locator models detect all commonly used RF utilities markers. TruDepth™ automatic depth estimation without the need for two step measurements allows for faster & more accurate surveys. Combined mode allows scanning for cables, pipes and markers simultaneously.
  • Data Logging: On board memory (PLM and TLM models) can store over a year’s worth of locate history at one second intervals. Data can be backed up to a PC at any time giving virtually unlimited record keeping for the life of the product. Retrieved data can be analysed for compliance or training requirements.
