The multifunctional RD8000 range are Radiodetection’s most advanced pipe & cable locator utility detector, offering a wide choice of locate functions and advanced connectivity options.
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 digital software, RD8000 delivers a highly controllable and reliable locate solution to service any industry, anywhere in the world.
Ergonomics: Light weight – at only 1.9 kg, the RD8000 range is comfortable to use for extended periods.IP54 Rating – you can operate it in almost any environment.Transmitter and locator feature a large, high contrast backlit LCD screen.
Centros™: Combination of new and innovative algorithms with established software on a high-performance processor core. Improves the accuracy and repeatability of measurements. Delivers powerful signal filtering and analysis allowing continued operation even in the most electrically noisy environments.
iLOC™: iLOC™ is an advanced Bluetooth® link between the RD8000 locator and transmitter. It allows the operator to control the transmitter remotely which means less time walking and more time locating.
SurveyCERT™: Gives the operator the tools to pass survey information to third-party applications for audit, analysis and reporting. Up to 1000 locate records can be stored and reviewed and the you can upload this information to PDA or PC using RD8000 Bluetooth connection.
TruDepth™: Depth readings are only indicated when the locator is correctly oriented above the target pipe, cable or sonde or in close proximity to a marker. Unique automatic marker depth estimation provides measurements without requiring a manual two-step 'lift up' process, delivering faster and more accurate surveys.
Internal digital compass: Visually indicates orientation of the target cables and allows the operator to quickly and easily follow the target line. Maximizes depth measurement accuracy by ensuring the locator is correctly with the target line.
Proportional Left - Right Arrow: Visually indicates orientation of the target cable. Guides the user to the central axis of the pipe or cable with dynamic left/right arrows, enhanced with differentiating sound. Distance from target cable indicated by length of arrow.
Dynamic Overload Protection: Extends the RD8000's locate capability into areas where other products fail. Automatically filters out large and unwanted signals while ensuring accurate location of the target pipe or cable. Particularly useful in electrically noisy environments surch as power sub stations or near overhead high-voltage cables.
Bluetooth® Connectivity and GPS: Bluetooth connectivity as standard. This allows the locators to interface to external devices for easy transfer of survey data directly into maps and databases.
Optional integrated GPS option for RD8000 models, which enables association of survey data with positional data without the need to carry external equipment. The RD Manager PC software allows easy transfer of the locator's survey data directly into common file formats such as KML for Google Earth.
eCAL™: The eCAL functionality is a unique Radiodetection technique that allows the operator to validate the original factory calibration of the RD8000. The eCAL can issue and print validation certificate without needing to return the RD8000 to a service center which means you spend more time in the field and less on servicing.
TruDepth™: Depth readings are only indicated when the locator is correctly oriented above the pipe cable.
Based on a fully digital platform, the Tx family of RadioDetection transmitters supports the entire range of RD8000 cable and pipe locators.
The Tx-1 is an easy to use, entry-level, transmitter. The Tx-3 offers higher current and induction capabilities, and features 8kHz Fault Find (8KFF) functionality. The Tx-10 has the highest current capability with 8kHz Fault Find (8KFF) and Current Direction (CD) functions as standard.
All models feature a three-stage phase sensitive amplifier that delivers a constant current across its entire bandwidth in direct connect, clamp or inductive modes. The Tx range is designed to deliver superior performance using minimal power consumption in a light weight and well-balanced, format.
90V output capability: All transmitters offer both 30V 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).
