Improvements of RD7100+ Include:
- GPS and Usage-Logging
Integrated GPS & automatic usage-logging allow managers to review locate history to ensure compliance with best practice.
- Guidance Mode
This enables the path of a single utility to be found & traced quickly. Directional information is displayed alongside proportional distance arrows to help find the utility & then keep you on its path.
This simultaneous display of depth & current information gives confidence the correct utility is being traced even in congested networks. For rough or uneven terrain differentiated audio tones can free the user to concentrate on potential hazards.
- Simultaneous Depth & Current Readout
Consistency of depth & current measurements gives confidence the correct line is being used.
- Dynamic Overlod Protection
Filters out interference, enabling use in electrically noisy environments such as near substations or overhead power lines.
- Operator Confidence On-Site
Establish if a strong power signal comes from one source or multiple cables, using the harmonic properties of mains networks.

Delivering fast, accurate, reliable and repeatable locate information for all utilities.
Locating specific pipes and cables in large underground networks is becoming increasingly complex. Ground distortion effects, caused by differing soil types and proximity to other conductors, make the operator’s job more difficult and time-consuming. The most important requirements for a locator under these circumstances are ease of use, accuracy and reliability. Radiodetection’s RD7000+ addresses these needs with several ground breaking features that deliver accurate, reliable and repeatable measurements. The new RD7000+ range of locators are powerful successors to the industry standard RD4000 and RD7000 families. RD7000+ delivers exceptional performance in areas of interference.
The RD7000+ is ergonomically designed to deliver a light weight, energy efficient and exceptionally well balanced locator. At only 1.9 kg, the RD7000+ is comfortable for extended periods of use, and with an IP54 ingress protection rating it can operate in almost any environment. The locator and transmitter both feature large, high contrast, backlit LCD screens that provide the user with clear information in any light conditions. The intuitive and responsive user interface has easily identifiable icons that are consistent across the locator and transmitter range, ensuring straightforward operation.
For 30 years Radiodetection has revolutionized locator design with over 50 software and hardware patents. This research has developed into a single entity called Centros.
Centros combines new and innovative algorithms with established software on high-performance hardware, improving the accuracy and repeatability of measurements and delivering unprecedented responsiveness in the field. The powerful signal filtering and analysis allows continued operation even in electrically noisy environments.
Unique to Radiodetection precision locators, eCAL allows users to validate the original factory calibration of the RD7000+ locator through a PC*. By checking the responses of all relevant internal components, eCAL provides the user with confidence that the locator performs as it did when it first left the factory, and allows the owner to print a validation certificate without the need to return the RD7000+ to a service center.
Allows the operator to quickly and easily follow the target line by visually indicating the relative orientation of the target cable and the locator. By indicating the alignment of the target cable with the locator, Compass helps to improve accuracy when measuring depth.
Dynamic Overload Protection
Extends the RD7000+’s locate capability into areas where other products fail by automatically filtering out large and unwanted signals – aiding accurate location of the target pipe or cable even in electrically noisy conditions, for example near High Voltage overhead cables.
A tool to identify the effects of field distortion due to ground conditions or nearby utilities. Simultaneous display of Peak bar graph response and proportional Null arrows allow a quick assessment of locate conditions.
The range of three ‘Tx’ transmitters, in 1, 3 or 10 Watt outputs, utilize a patented system architecture housed in a robust case suitable for use in almost any environment (IP54 rated). With programmable direct connect and induction frequencies up to 200kHz,
each transmitter delivers a constant current across the entire spectrum and has a high voltage mode for high impedance environments.
Radiodetection offers a free upgrade to a 3 year extended warranty on RD7000+ locators and the Tx range of transmitters through registration on www.radiodetection.com within 3 months of purchase. Registered products also receive free product software and feature upgrades through Centros Manager as they are released.
