Li-ion battery standard on EMS marker locators for 25 hours
of continuous use (or 3 D-cells)
Logs one year of data in tamper-proof memory (RD8000)
Underground Cable Direction Display: The RD8000 displays a line parallel
to the pipe or cable for easier and faster locating especially
Automatically displays depth without buttons and prevents depth display not aligned or near the utility to
avoid inaccurate depths.
Control Transmitter for
Receiver: ILOC™ The Radiodetection RD8000B
underground cable pipe locator remotely controls the frequency and output
level of the Tx-5B or Tx-10B locator transmitters with advanced Bluetooth®
link from 1000 feet. Integrates easily with GPS for quick data collection to update utility maps.
Peak and null antennas compare the location shown by the
peak and true null antennas to determine locate accuracy
instead of assuming. Display of peak and null at the
same time make verifying locate accuracy faster and easier.
Arrows: Left and
right arrows grow longer the farther from the underground
pipe or cable and a variable tone that is different on side.
3 Year Warranty
Over 50 software and hardware patents,
High-performance processor core runs new, innovative algorithms. Improves the accuracy and repeatability of measurements.
Dynamic Overload Protection:
Prevents signal overload in areas with strong signals like
StrikeAlert: Warns of nearby power cables.
Simultaneous power and radio signal
detection: Search for buried utilities with both
frequencies in a single step hear the actual signals
amplified without the transmitter.
Light Weight & Balanced – 28% lighter
standard RD4000 cable and pipe locator. (If you place
your finger in center of the handle, the RD7000 and RD8000 pipe
and cable locators balance vertically which promotes more
accurate locating and the comfort of locator operator.)
Improved Display: Large, high contrast, automatic backlit
LCD screen on both the transmitters and receivers.
Cable Fault Location:
Follow the arrows to the cable ground fault from all
directions with a patented technique. The locator
automatically switches to the fault find frequency when the
A-frame is connected.
Current Direction: Simple patented identification tool with
arrows that point forward when near the target utility and
backwards when near all others utilities.
The single peak is about 30% stronger signal.
Choice of batteries:
Rechargeable Li-ion battery pack with quick change D-cell
battery door optional.
Verify Calibration Onsite: Validate the original factory calibration of the
RD8000 and RD7000 underground
locators and print certificates without returning it.
Calibrate Remotely via USB: Check and document RD8000 utility locator calibration with a USB connection and win
Free Onsite Updates: Connect the USB port and upgrade your RD8000 or RD7000 underground cable
and pipe locator without sending it in.
