Radiodetection RD7000 and RD8000 locators
By Anthony Capkun
Radiodetection says its new RD7000 and RD8000 locators deliver “fast, accurate, reliable and repeatable locate information for all utilities”. The ergonomic features of the RD7000 and RD8000 provide operators with light weight, energy efficiency and good balance (28% lighter than the RD4000). The receiver and transmitter feature a large, high-contrast, backlit LCD screen that provides users with clear information under varying light conditions, and a self-explanatory icon set on the keypad is consistent on both transmitter/receiver. The locators boast an IP54 rating, and are Centros-enabled. eCAL is included with Centros Manager—a Radiodetection applications suite for Microsoft Windows that gives users tools for managing the RD7000 and RD8000 receivers directly from their desktop or laptop computers.
