For outdoor usage, industrial-grade display

RD7200 locators and transmitters use a transflective low power LCD technology that uses ambient light to improve screen readability in direct sunlight and extend battery life.

TruDepth and current readout, for extra assurance

Radiodetection’s TruDepth displays the precise depth and current measurements, only when the RD7200 is correctly oriented above the target. Measurement consistency gives high confidence that the correct line is being followed.

High-performance audio and vibration alerts, for noisy environments

The RD7200 waterproof speaker housing has been tuned to provide optimum resonance for your choice of high or low-frequency tones. Five power output audio levels and vibration alerts, assist technicians working in challenging situations.

Accurate locating across multiple industries

Accurate and simple to use, the RD7200 comes with eight active and three passive frequencies covering most site locating tasks. A rugged, IP65 rated casing and a high contrast screen make it suitable for use in all weather conditions.

In complex power environments, with multiple signals from high voltage equipment and cables, Radiodetection’s Dynamic Overload Protection reduces the effect of interference and Power Filters can be used to trace a single target line amongst multiple cables.

Water and Pipeline
A wide choice of active frequencies allows conductive pipes to be traced for long distances. Where sondes or cameras are used to survey pipes made from various materials (including cast iron, clay, fibre, concrete and brick) the four RD7200 sonde frequencies are ideal for quickly locating and tracing their position. Pipes with Cathodic Protection System can be followed using the CPS passive mode. CPS compass mode ensures alignment with the target pipeline.

The RD7200 features higher frequencies to locate high impedance lines and sonde frequencies for duct and conduit tracing. Higher frequencies can also be used to trace sheathed domestic cables without grounding connections. Cable sheath faults can be located within 4” (10cm) using 8kHz Fault Find mode with a Radiodetection A-Frame.

Protecting technicians and infrastructures

  • The RD7200 offer many features designed to drive correct usage, reduce utility damage and improve safety. A Swing Warning System prompts correct use. Locators must be kept perpendicular to the ground for best accuracy. RD7200 locators have a built-in gyroscopic measurement system which alerts the user of excessive swing, driving correct usage.
  • StrikeAlert in active and passive locating modes Visual and audio warnings of shallow cables reduces the risk of accidents.
  • Vibration feedback reduces the chance of missed warnings. The RD7200 locator handle vibrates when alerts activate, leaving the operator to concentrate on the job at hand.

Ergonomic design, premium quality

  • The RD7200 is a rugged locator capable of operating in most challenging conditions.
  • Made in the UK – No compromise on quality. The RD7200 locator and transmitters are designed and manufactured in Great Britain and are subjected to a rigorous test regime before leaving our factory.
  • Use it all day, day after day – lightweight and ergonomic. The RD7200 has been designed around the operator’s needs. The iconic industrial design provides an exceptionally well balanced, and lightweight tool which is comfortable for extended periods of use.
  • Self-test – operator confidence on-site. The integrity of the measurement system can be confirmed on-site. Self-test applies signals to the locating circuitry as well as checking display and power functions.
  • Knowledge base and Technical support, when you need it RD7200 offer a comprehensive knowledge base library which is available to consult online from a mobile device or pc.
