Locating specific pipes, cables and utility RF markers in large underground networks is very complex. Ground distortion effects, caused by differing soil types and proximity to other conductors, make the user’s job more difficult and time-consuming. The most important requirements for a locator under these circumstances are ease of use, accuracy and reliability. Radiodetection’s RD7100+ Utility Locator range addresses these needs with many features that deliver accurate, reliable and repeatable performance.
RF utility marker locator range with automatic depth estimation
Proportional Left – Right Arrow
Dynamic Overload Protection
Bluetooth® Connectivity (marker models)
Automatic data logging and CALSafe (PLM and TLM models)
Three models capable of delivering up to 10W of true output power, maintaining constant current across their entire bandwidth in direct connect, clamp or inductive modes to enable fast and repeatable surveys. TX-5 model features 8kHz Fault Find functionality; TX-10 models feature both 8kHz Fault Find and Current Direction (CD functions require use of RD8000 locator) functions.
90V output capability: All transmitters offer both 30V and 90V output options, resulting in higher signal current delivered on high impedance target lines than typical transmitters that only offer a 50V output. Higher signals are more locatable signals that travel a longer distance.
SideStepauto™: allows the transmitter to calculate the optimum frequency based on ground impedance. The transmitter uses this information to optimize the active frequency. SideStepauto helps to improve locate accuracy and extends battery life.
ECO mode: extends alkaline battery life by warning the operator and gradually reducing the power output in low battery condition (Tx-5 and Tx-10 models only).
The RD7100 range of locators and transmitters are supported by two application suites for Microsoft® Windows®: Centros Manager for standard cable and pipe locators and RD Manager for marker locators.
RD Manager only functionalities:
Rechargeable battery packs for Locators and Transmitters.
