RD1500 Quick Start Guide – Assembly Procedure
You will find the following components in your RD1500 box.
Some of these may already be assembled.
Display unit tray
Cart handle
Handle pin
Attach the Cart Handle to Cart Base using the Handle Pins.
Ensure the Display Unit Tray is facing the operator.
GPR sensor
Cart base
Odometer cable
Sensor support
Display unit
Battery charger
Battery cable
Attach the GPR Sensor to the Cart using the
Sensor Support Straps. Ensure the Sensor is
oriented the correct way with the connections
toward the back of the Cart. Using the
Sensor Support Straps, adjust the
height of the Sensor so it is 1-2 cm
(½ – ¾ inch) above the ground.
Attach the Display Cable to the back of the Display
Unit with the jackscrews. Connect the other end of
the cable to the Sensor. Ensure the cable is routed
as shown below.
Attach the Display Unit onto the Display Unit Tray on the Cart.
The Display unit slides down into
the tray, catching on both sides
of the mount and is held in
place with the pull pin. When a
click is heard, the Display Unit is
firmly in place.
Attach the Odometer and Battery Cables. The Odometer Cable
connects to the closest receptacle on the Sensor. Attach the Battery
Cable to the Sensor and the Battery.
Battery cable
The system is now ready to use.

RD1500 Quick Start Guide – Operation
To start the system, press
the power button on the
display unit.
To locate targets, move the system back along the same path until the red
vertical line is exactly over the response (usually a hyperbola). You can mark
the location of the object on the surface and continue data collection. Viewing
options can be adjusted using the menu at the bottom of the screen.
Once the system boots up,
you will see the main screen.
LED light
Power button
Swipe your finger from the top of the screen towards the bottom. This will
show a drop-down menu displaying date, battery level, GPS status and
Wi-Fi status. To close the drop-down menu, touch anywhere on the screen
below the menu.
Grid Scan Mode
Grid scans are conducted to generate depth slices over a given area.
From the main menu press
the Grid Scan button to
enter the Grid setup menu.
From here you can set the
grid number grid size and
grid resolution (also known
as Line Spacing).
Press Start to enter Grid
Line Scan Mode
Line Scan enables the operator to locate a feature and easily back-up
and mark the location of that object on the ground. From the main screen,
press the Line
Scan button;
you will see the
screen shown
Align the system so that the longitudinal axis is centered on the first line.
Then line up the middle of the sensor with the starting line and press
Start. Push the system in a straight line towards the end of the line.
Data acquisition will automatically stop once you reach the end of the line.
The Line Scan image of the data just collected
will appear on the left side of the screen.
The grid picture on the right shows the
collected lines (red), current line (white) and
remaining lines to be collected (green). Move
to the next line, and repeat until all X lines and
Y lines are collected. When you have finished,
press the Slice View button.
Slice View
Slice View displays data collected in a grid as a series of depth slices
moving deeper into the subsurface.
Soil Cal
Grid line
Depth Slice
Press the Start button to begin collecting data. The screen will change to
the data acquisition screen. As the system is pushed along a straight line,
the collected GPR data scrolls onto the screen from the right and moves
to the left.
Position Axis
Depth Axis
Pressing the + and - buttons on the Depth button will increase or decrease
the depth of the depth slice currently displayed. This allows the user to “slice
through” the ground, and locate features that appear at different depths.
