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
groundbreaking 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 4lb (1.9kg), 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

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.
C o m pa s s
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.

Based on a fully digital platform, the new family of Radiodetection transmitters supports
the entire range of Radiodetection RD7000, RD7000+ and RD8000 cable and pipe
locators.
The Tx-1 is an easy to use, entry-level, transmitter. The Tx-3 offers higher power and
induction capabilities, and features 8kHz Fault Find (8KFF) functionality. The Tx-10
has the highest current capability with 8kHz Fault Find (8KFF) and Current Direction
(CD) functions as standard.
All models feature a three-stage phase sensitive amplifier that delivers a ground

definition on high resistance lines.
A large, high contrast, backlit LCD screen 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 locators and transmitters in the range, ensuring
straightforward operation. All models also feature a multimeter function providing
measurement of output voltage, line voltage, current, impedance and power.
SideStepauto™: allows the transmitter to calculate the optimum frequency based
on ground impedance. The transmitter uses this information to optimize the active
frequency. SideStepauto helps to improve locate accuracy and extends battery life.
All Tx models are compatible with the complete range of RD7000, RD7000+ and
RD8000 frequencies in both inductive and direct connect modes. The transmitters are
powered either by 8 standard D-cell batteries (alkaline or rechargeable NiMH) or by the
Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery pack (available
separately). Alternatively, the Tx range can be
powered from a 12V vehicle source using a
Radiodetection approved isolation transformer.
