Follow the right trail using the new Locators from Radiodetection

Posted: Monday 5th October 2009

Following the successful launch of the RD8000 range of pipe and cable locators from Radiodetection in 2008, the company has seen more and more sales thanks to the innovative current direction (CD) feature.

Available on Radiodetectionís most advanced locator the RD8000PDL, CD

enables operators to trace and identify a target cable in highly

congested areas or when running parallel to other lines.

Radiodetection has developed and patented a unique method of

identifying a target cable amongst a number of parallel cables using

CD direction arrows. A signal is applied to the target line using

Radiodetectionís Tx-10 signal transmitter and the RD8000 hand held

receiver shows the direction of the current flow on the line. The

target line can be identified if the receiver display arrow shows that

the current is flowing away from the point of application of the

transmitter signal. The incorporation of CD is a great step forward as

not only does it significantly improve locate accuracy but also gives

the operator increased confidence that they are locating the correct

pipe or cable. This unique feature saves both time and money, with

operators eliminating wasted time following faulty trails enabling

them to carry out a job efficiently and cost-effectively.

The RD8000 represents Radiodetectionís continuing development and

improvement of pipe and cable location systems, providing the broadest

range and choice for any user.
