RD8200 and RD7200 locators: Take the next step in locating buried infrastructure

Locating and protecting buried infrastructure is a key operation for many industries. Locator technicians need reliable equipment that can be used all day, every day in tough environments. They demand tools that can deliver efficient operations, high levels of safety and precise and accurate measurements.

Designed with operators in mind, the new RD8200 and RD7200 and their transmitters are our most advanced cable range of precision locators yet. Created and built in the UK, they are subjected to a rigorous test regime and quality checks before leaving our factory, continuing our long tradition of high quality and reliability.

The RD8200 and RD7200 offer a set of new features to improve operational efficiency and adherence to best practice, including:


Swing Warning System to drive correct usage

Locators must be kept perpendicular to the ground for best accuracy. The RD8200 and RD7200 have a built-in gyroscopic measurement system, which alerts the user of excessive swing, driving correct usage.


High performance audio system to allow operations in noisy environments

The new locators have a new waterproof speaker housing, positioned to provide maximum feedback to the operator and tuned for optimum resonance for the frequency tones chosen. Five power output levels assist technicians working in challenging environments.


Vibration feedback system to reduce the chance of missed warnings

The locator handle vibrates when alerts activate, leaving the operator to concentrate on the job at hand.


Automatic logging system to influence on-site behavior

The RD8200G records details on how, when and where it is used. This information can be utilized to drive best practices, identify training needs and maximize operator productivity.


Bluetooth BLE technology to be ready for a connected world

The new single or dual Bluetooth system offers a new connectivity platform designed to offer future upgrades and connectivity solutions. Radiodetection and their distributor partners can also offer local training, that can be customized to meet specific needs, as well as support to maximize business continuity and efficiency.

The RD8200, RD7200 and their transmitters are backed by a three year warranty through product registration.
