Utility Mapping RD 8000 Pipe and Cable Locator


The RD8000PDL is the powerful successor to the industry standard RD4000PDL pipe and cable locator. The RD8000 improves on speed, accuracy and reliability yet remains a cost-effective solution for any application delivering unique user features. Designed with the latest, patented digital firmware, RD8000 delivers a highly controllable and reliable locate solution to service any industry, anywhere in the world.

Null Distance Arrows: Left and right arrows grow longer the farther from the underground pipe or cable and a variable tone that is different on side. Display of peak and null at the same time make verifying locate accuracy faster and easier.

Cable and Pipe Direction Display: The RD8000 displays a line parallel to the t pipe or cable for easier and faster locating especially at bends.
· Over 50 software and hardware patents
· High-performance processor core runs new, innovative algorithms.
· Improves the accuracy and repeatability of measurements
· Powerful signal filtering and analysis even in the most electrically noisy environments.

ILOC™: The Radiodetection RD8000 cable and line locator remotely controls the frequency and output level of the Tx-3B or Tx-10B locator transmitters with advanced Bluetooth® link from 1/3 mile. Integrates easily with GPS for quick data collection to update utility maps.

SurveyCERT™: Store and review up to 1000 locate records that can include GPS data for quick GIS updates to correct or create utility maps.

eCAL™: Validate the original factory calibration of the RD8000 and RD7000 underground pipe and cable locators and print certificates without returning it.

TruDepth™: Automatically displays accurate depth readings within 2.5% of depth when correctly oriented and directly above the pipe or cable preventing errors.

Dynamic Overload Protection: Filters out unwanted cable locator signals in extreme conditions such as substations.

StrikeAlert: Warns of nearby power cables.

Passive Avoidance: Simultaneous power and radio signal detection on underground pipes and cables with real audio to differentiate the relative proportions or each signal.

Light weight and well balanced

TX -10 Transmitter

Radiodetection Tx-10 Transmitter 10 Watt

The Tx-10 has the highest current capability with both Fault Find and CD modes as standard.

It features a patented three-stage phase sensitive amplifier that delivers a ground impedance compensated, constant current across its entire bandwidth in either direct connect, clamp or inductive mode. The transmitter uses less power and isergonomically designed to deliver superior performance in a new light-weight, well-balanced case.

The RDTX-10 is 10% lighter than the industry standard T10 yet each is IP54 rated to cope with demanding environmental conditions. Each model has a removable accessory tray and a weatherproof battery compartment. A large, high contrast, backlit LCD screen provides the user with clear information. The interface is intuitive and responsive, allowing the operator to access any feature with ease.

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.

All models are compatible with the complete range of RD7000 and RD8000 frequencies in both inductive and direct connect modes. The transmitters use 8 D-cell batteries and can be powered from a vehicle using a 12V cable plug (it is recommended that an approved Radiodetection isolation transformer is used).

As an additional feature, each model has a multimeter function providing measurement of output voltage, line voltage, current, impedance and power.

Note: The accessory tray includes a ground stake, direct connect leads and earth reel.

Price includes receiver, transmitter, carry case and accessories.
