Radiodetection launches the RD7000 and RD8000 Pipe and Cable Locators

Radiodetection, the world leader in the design, manufacture and supply of underground pipe and cable locators, is proud to announce the launch of the RD7000 and RD8000 range of pipe and cable locators.

The RD8000™ and RD7000™ are ergonomically designed delivering a lightweight, energy efficient and exceptionally well balanced tool, which encourages extended use. The receiver and transmitter feature a large, high contrast, backlit LCD screen that provides the user with clear information in any light conditions. The intuitive and responsive interface is designed so the operator can access any feature with ease.

The RD8000 and RD7000 are Centros™ Enabled. Centros™, is a measurement engine based on more than 30 years of continuous product development. Centros™ combines new and innovative algorithms with established software on a high-performance processor core. Centros™ improves the accuracy and repeatability of measurements and delivers unprecedented responsiveness in the field.

The RD8000 is the high-end feature model designed for multiple applications and industries. The RD7000 family is for operators who require an application or industry specific locator with a cost- effective feature set.

All products feature eCAL™, a novel Radiodetection technique that allows the operator to validate the original factory calibration, giving them the confidence that the locator is performing at optimum capability.

Amongst the features of the RD8000 is iLOC™, an advanced Bluetooth® link between the RD8000 locator and transmitter that is designed to save the operator time and effort. iLOC™ allows the operator to control the transmitter remotely using a number of unique features.

The RD8000 also features SurveyCERT™. SurveyCERT™ gives the operator the tools to pass survey information to third-party applications for audit, analysis and reporting on a PC or PDA. The RD8000 stores data in industry-standard CSV file format, which is compatible with Microsoft® Excel™ and most commercial GIS packages. SurveyCERT makes the RD8000 a powerful ally to any pipeline or utility mapping and reporting professional.

The RD8000 and RD7000 represent Radiodetection’s continuing development and improvement of pipe and cable location systems, providing the broadest range and choice for any user. The RD8000 and RD7000 affirm Radiodetection’s position as the leader and supplier of choice in this industry.
