The Radiodetection RD8200(G) and RD7200 cable and pipe locators are now fully approved on national rail infrastructure in Great Britain, managed by Network Rail. This acceptance is in addition to the existing acceptance of all Radiodetection C.A.T4, RD7100 and RD8100 products and Tx transmitters, which remains valid.

The products have all passed Network Rail’s stringent standards for use on the rail network, with comprehensive tests covering safety, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF).

Locating underground services before digging is an essential contributor to safe and cost-effective subsurface engineering on the rail network. Cable and pipe locators are a vital component of safe trackside engineering operations. They enable engineers to identify the location of specific utilities or to scan an area for buried services before excavating.
