Radiodetection, a world leader in the design and development of cable and pipe locators,
launched the popular 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 Dynamic Overload Protection to improve
locate performance in electrically noisy areas and Compass, which determines and displays the
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 identifies 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:

Radiodetection’s proprietary Compass feature provides the operator with a visual indication of
the orientation of the target cable or pipe. This feature makes following the target line
significantly easier, and also makes it easier to position the RD7000+ correctly for maximum
depth measurement accuracy.

Dynamic Overload Protection (DOP)
Dynamic Overload Protection extends the locator’s area of operation into electrically noisy
environments where other products fail. Dynamic Overload Protection allows the user to
continue to locate accurately in areas with high levels of electromagnetic interference, such as
power sub-stations and beneath high voltage transmission lines and overhead or railway HV

Dynamic Overload Protection is an integrated, automatic feature of the RD7000+. No action is
required by the user to enable the feature.

Centros™ Enabled
All RD7000+ units are Centros™ enabled. Centros is a measurement engine based on more
than 30 years of continuous development, combining new and innovative algorithms with
established software on a high-performance processor core. Centros improves location
accuracy and repeatability and delivers timely responsiveness in the field.

eCAL™ Product Validation
Unique to Radiodetection’s precision locators, eCALTM allows users to validate the original
factory calibration of their RD7000+ locator. 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. eCAL can be carried out on-site and allows the owner to print a validation
certificate without the need to return the RD7000+ to a service center.
