Industrial grade display, for outdoor usage
RD8200 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 RD8200 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 RD8200 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.
Adapting to challenging environments
The RD8200 range of locators and transmitters simplify the task of distinguishing and tracing utilities in congested networks, near substations or high voltage lines. Current Direction, track the right line. Identify your target amongst several parallel utilities by applying a specialised CD signal from a Tx-10 transmitter. CD arrows displayed on the locator confirm you are tracing your target line.
Power Filters works where other locators won’t
When a transmitter can’t be connected, tracing individual power lines through dense networks can be a real challenge. Conflicting or powerful signals confuse or combine to create a wash of signal. A single keypress enables using the harmonic properties of power signals to establish if a signal comes from one source or multiple cables that you can then trace and mark.
Dynamic Overload Protection rejects unwanted interference
Automatically filters out interference, enabling use in electrically noisy environments such as near substations or overhead power lines.
Technology-driven best on-site practise
RD8200 locators offer many features designed to drive correct usage, reduce utility damage, improve safety and enhance your reputation.
Swing Warning System drives correct usage
Locators must be kept perpendicular to the ground for best accuracy. RD8200 locators have a built-in gyroscopic measurement system which alerts the user of excessive swing, driving correct usage.
Usage-logging with GPS positioning, understand how your technicians operate
The RD8200G locator automatically stores all locate parameters providing a comprehensive picture of field operations. Supervisors or health and safety personnel can analyse the data to assess usage patterns to ensure adherence to best-practice and identify training needs before developing poor work habits. The information can also be shared with partners or clients to evidence task completion or compliance with service requirements. Usage data can be exported in multiple file formats – for example, KML for Google Maps to confirm where and when work was performed.
Vibration feedback reduces the chance of missed warnings
The RD8200 locator handle vibrates when alerts activate, leaving the operator to concentrate on the job at hand. A light yet rugged tool ready to operate in most challenging conditions, day after day.
Made in the UK – No compromise on quality
The RD8200 locator and transmitters are designed and manufactured in Great Britain and are subjected to a rigorous test regime before leaving our factory.
Locate with confidence – Self-test
Confirm the integrity of the measurement system on- site. Self-test applies signals to the locating circuitry as well as checking display and power functions.
Use it all day, day after day -Lightweight and ergonomic
The RD8200 has been designed around the operator needs. The iconic industrial design provides an exceptionally well balanced, lightweight tool that is comfortable for extended periods of use—a feature-rich locating solution, designed to extend and future proof of your field capabilities.
RDMap+, for easy and cm accurate utility mapping
Add positional data to your survey measurements with the integrated GNSS option, and use RD MAP+ to create in real-time*, detailed maps of buried utilities. Combine with a high accuracy external positioning device, such as the Trimble Catalyst RTK solution, to create high accuracy utility maps**. *Requires data connectivity and Google Maps.**Trimble Catalyst and RTK correction subscription required for high accuracy.
Custom frequencies, for matching your RD8200 to a specific telecom network
Up to 5 additional frequencies can be programmed into your locator to match it to the signals found on your target networks.
Dual Bluetooth connectivity, ready for a connected world
The RD8200 locator provides a dual Bluetooth system, which combines long-range iLOC functionality and low power connectivity to deliver a system ready to connect to cloud-based data solutions.
