RD1000+ Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)
The RD1000+ GPR detects non-conductive underground utilities using advanced image-processing filters and wide-band radar technology.
Radiodetection’s RD1000+ provides high-performance subsurface imaging for buried utilities in a rugged and competitively priced Ground Penetrating Radar system.
Designed for the utility industry, the RD1000+ features a wide-band sensor capable of detecting plastic and ceramic utilities at depths of up to 8m / 27’ deep. Once a utility is detected, the operator can simply reverse the cart to switch the RD1000+ into Locate Mode and determine the utility’s depth and position, simplifying utility identification.
Advanced DynaQ signal processing optimises signal quality, providing real-time image updates and high levels of detail. Integrated digital filters and color palettes allow operators to pick out even small utilities located in differing subsurface materials and soil types.
Operators can capture what’s on the display with a single touch. Locate images can be transferred to a PC from the Compact Flash card using the dedicated RD1000+ ImageView software to assist in documenting and analysing surveys.
Built from durable, weatherproof (IP66 rated) materials, and supported by a range of wheel types and accessories, the RD1000+ can operate across rough or smooth terrain. The modular design also makes the system quick to service and repair.
Weighing only 48lbs (22kg), the system is designed to be transported and assembled without requiring specialist equipment in less than two minutes. Key components can be packed in hard or soft travel cases, and a flight case is also available to protect an entire system during transportation.
The new RD1100 supersedes the RD1000+
Ground Penetrating Radar can detect ceramic and plastic pipes and ducts which would otherwise require tracer wire or sondes to detect using an electromagnetic locator. The RD1000+’s ultra wide-band antennas enable detection of a wide range of buried utilities without introducing the cost or complexity associated with multiple frequency GPR.
Simply reverse the cart to enter locate mode to measure position and depth and characterise signals to ensure consistent surveying.
Capture radar images direct from the screen and export using the dedicated ImageView software for analysis and use in survey reports.
Large, bright, real-time display allows operation even in bright daylight. Light-weight, rugged and weatherproof (IP66) system designed for use across challenging terrain. Optional larger wheels can be fitted to ease use across particularly soft or rough ground.
The RD1000+ can be assembled on-site in less than two minutes, and can be dismantled without requiring tools, allowing compact storage and safe transportation. Soft and hard cases are available for transportation of the display unit; alternatively an optional flight case can be used to protect the entire system.
Advanced DynaQ processing increases data / image definition and provides real-time imaging during surveys. Digital filtering helps the operator to eliminate unwanted signals and ground returns, while color palettes allow users to pick out even small utilities amongst differing subsurface materials and soil types.
The RD1000+’s modular design allows for replacement of a number of the key component parts without requiring specialist tools. Radiodetection’s service network provides quick and cost-effective repairs for sensors and displays.
