Radiodetection's new range of precision locators builds on the high-performance and ergonomics of the RD7000®+ and RD8000® platforms and is aimed at locate professionals and utility companies who need to detect utility RF markers (also known as EMS or Omni-marker) alongside buried infrastructure.
Featuring TruDepth™, Radiodetection's unique automatic depth measurement system, and combined utility and marker locating mode, the marker locator range delivers faster and more accurate surveys.
Interfacing to maps and GIS systems is simpler thanks to internal GPS capabilities and convenient Bluetooth® and USB connectivity. The built-in GPS option, allows to conveniently add positional data to survey measurements without the need to carry additional equipment. All locators feature Bluetooth to allow automatic measurements transfer to external device. RD8000 models offer easy retrieval of saved measurements via USB and export into common file formats such as KML for Google Earth.
Monitoring usage, improving best practice and providing proof of work is delivered by the automatic data logging on selected models. Every second key locator parameters are saved into the unit's non removable internal memory for later retrieval and analysis using the convenient and reliable USB connection and RD Manager™, the PC companion of the marker locator range. GPS models will also add the benefit of proving survey locations.
I would like to thank you for helping Evergreen with some training on our RD7000…Roger Lewis spent some time with four of us explaining how the locator worked and even had us use it outside. Just want to add that Roger was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions in detail and not with just a yes or no answer, he really explained his self very well and thanks to him we are all more confident in our ability to use the locator. Please thank Roger for us and we will definitely keep you guys at the top of our list for any future needs.
