Marketing bulletin Radiodetection – Commercial in Confidence Unauthorized disclosure or copying of this document of any part thereof is prohibited. 2 1. Product Summary In May 2008, Radiodetection launched the RD7000 range of utility specific locators, offering high performance in an ergonomic and exceptionally user‐friendly platform. The RD7000+ products that replace them focus on core user requirements by incorporating new features across the range: • Dynamic Overload Protection which automatically filters out large and unwanted signals to improve locate performance in electrically noisy areas, and • Compass, which determines and displays the relative orientation of the target cable or pipe, simplifying route determination and helping to improve depth measurement accuracy. The task of locating specific pipes and cables in large underground networks is becoming increasingly complex, making the operator’s job more difficult and more time‐consuming. Radiodetection research into this area has identified improved locator ease of use, accuracy and reliability as key to user requirements. The RD7000+ range addresses these needs with new features that deliver accurate, reliable and repeatable measurements: In keeping with the RD7000 range, the RD7000 range comprises four variants, each specified for use within a specific utility industry: • RD7000SL+: ‘Site Locator,’ aimed at the generalist construction industry • RD7000DL+: ‘Drain Locator,’ aimed at water industry professionals, and designed to complement our inspection portfolios • RD7000TL+: ‘Telecoms Locator’ designed to locate and fault‐find high impedance cables such as bundled communications networks • RD7000PL+: ‘Power Locator’ aimed at the power transmission and maintenance industry Based on a common platform, the specific features, functions and locate frequencies of each unit differentiates the products within the range, matching each utility industry with a specific product which is competitively priced by comparison to multifunction products such as the RD8000 range. In addition to the new Compass and Dynamic Overload Protection functions, the RD7000+ range retains the key selling features of the RD7000 including eCAL™, TruDepth™ and proportional Peak/Distance arrows, which are further detailed in section 3. The RD7000+ features several user‐configurable options – which can be set on‐screen or via the Option Editor screen in the Centros™ Manager 6 PC support application ‐ such as mains frequency (50/60Hz), units of measurement (metric or imperial) and language. In addition, the user may enable or disable a frequency via the on‐screen menu for personal preference or training purposes. This configurability helps to reduce the number of variant models and allows the operator to set up the system according to their own preferences. Radiodetection – Commercial in Confidence Unauthorized disclosure or copying of this document of any part thereof is prohibited. 3 The RD7000+ is fully compatible with the Tx‐1/3/10 range of transmitters, as well as the appropriate accessories as previously supplied for the RD8000/RD7000/RD4000 ranges of locator The RD7000+ range will be positioned at the same price as the RD7000 products that they directly replace. Please refer to section 7 for part numbers and pricing details. 2. Target Utility Industries Products within the RD7000+ range are designed for use within particular utility industries. Each unit is specified to provide a person working within a specific industry with the set of features, locate frequencies and functions that enable accurate and reliable pipe and/or cable location in their particular workplace. Construction Industry – RD7000SL+ Construction sites are characterized by a wide range of electric fields and conductive materials, making accurate pipe and cable locating a challenge. A broad range of active locate frequencies are provided within RD7000SL+, along with Power and Radio locate modes and StrikeAlert™ to reduce risks from shallow cables strikes. The light unit weight, water sealing and ergonomic design ensure comfortable, continued use over extended periods of time in any weather condition. The addition of Compass and Dynamic Overload Protection ensures pipe and cable tracing is simplified in the complex environment of a construction site. Water Industry – RD7000DL+ The RD7000DL+ is designed to detect conductive pipes and cables using active and passive frequencies, and is also capable of locating the Cathodic Protection Systems (CPS) signals applied to pipelines, further extending its versatility. 4 different sonde frequencies allow the RD7000DL+ to be used to locate pipes in varying environments and made from a wide variety of materials including cast iron, plastic (PE), clay, fiber, concrete and brick. This combination of features makes the RD7000DL+ the ideal partner for the Radiodetection and Pearpoint ranges of inspection equipment. Power Industry – RD7000PL+ One of the biggest challenges to operators working in the power industry is locating pipes and cables when operating in and around high voltage environments, such as substations and cables. This is where Dynamic Overload Protection comes into its own by automatically eliminating large stray signals if present. With a combined peak/null display mode, the effects of signal distortion can be readily recognized and accurate locate responses identified. When combined with an accessory A‐Frame, the 8kHz Fault Find function can be used to locate a cable fault to within 10cm / 4” accuracy. The RD7000PL+ is also capable of displaying the depth of a cable when locating in passive ‘Power Mode’, while StrikeAlert™ reduces the risks posed by shallow cables. Telecommunications Industry – RD7000TL+ Telecommunication utilities are characterized by the use of highly insulated cables, which make for difficult locates. RD7000TL+ features 7 active locate frequencies, including 131kHz and 200kHz, which enable location of these cables. With 8kHz Fault Find capability, Compass and Dynamic Overload Protection, cables can be located, traced, and faults located even in electrically noisy situations. Three sonde frequencies also enable location of non‐metallic conduits with an appropriate sonde, see section 6.

RD7000+ Range Key Selling Points Aside from the unit‐ specific features outlined above, the RD7000+ range benefits from a number of key selling features designed to ensure accurate location and user‐friendliness: Usability 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 provides 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 ranges, ensuring straightforward operation. Centros™ 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. eCAL™ 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 returning their RD7000+ to a service center. Extended Warranty 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. Proportional Peak Distance Arrows Is an intuitive tool that guides an operator to the central axis of the pipe or cable by presenting dynamic left and right arrows. The longer the arrow, the further the distance from the target pipe or cable. Peak mode Peak mode provides the most sensitive and accurate mode for location and depth measurement. It provides a sharp peak response corresponding to a signal strength & bargraph readout on the screen. Null Mode(PL and TL models) Null mode gives a null response when it is directly over the line. The sharp null response is simpler to use than the peak response but is more vulnerable to interference. Null mode uses left/right arrows and differentiated audio tones to indicate the relative position of the null point. Radiodetection – Commercial in Confidence Unauthorized disclosure or copying of this document of any part thereof is prohibited. 5 Combined Peak/Null mode (all models) Combines the advantages of Peak and Null modes, and provides a further 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 differential between each response indicating the presence of a distorted field. TruDepth™ Gives the operator the confidence that the depth reading is accurate by only indicating a locate depth when the locator is correctly oriented directly above the pipe/cable. Compass visually indicates the relative orientation of the pipe/cable to aid the operator to correct their positioning. StrikeAlert™ Although work practices and guidelines insist that utilities are buried below a certain depth, a common cause of cable strike is shallow cables. The StrikeAlert™ feature alerts the user to shallow power cables by alerting the operator with an audio warning. Fault Find (PL & TL models) A patented technique that enables an operator to locate a cable sheath fault using a Radiodetection A‐
frame attached to the locator. On‐screen arrows show the direction to the fault and help the operator locate the fault accurately to within 10 centimeters / 4”. Passive location modes The RD7000+ can locate metallic conductors by detecting signals radiating from them. These signals can be derived from low‐frequency radio signals (‘Radio Mode’) or from energy radiated from power cables (‘Power Mode’). Additionally, the RD7000DL+ can detect and trace Cathodic Protection System signals which are applied to pipelines to reduce corrosion. The RD7000PL+ is capable of determining depth when locating passive power signals. However passive signals on lines are less suited for measuring depth because accuracy is questionable due to the passive signal being present on more than one line. Real sound The audio signals heard by the operator are derived from the actual signal being radiated from the cable or pipe, as opposed to being artificially generated by the locator. With very little experience this very important feature helps the user distinguish the signal from random background noise. Transmitters The range of three compatible ‘Tx’ transmitters, in 1, 3 or 10 Watt outputs, utilize a patented system architecture housed in a robust case suitable for use in 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.
