Radiodetection RD8200G With GPS

When precision and accuracy matter most

Locate in congested areas and in the presence of strong interfering signals.

Locating and tracing a specific utility in congested areas can be challenging. The RD8200G enables the field technician to confirm they are following the correct line, check for interference and avoid false positives, giving them confidence in the quality of their work.

Produce cm-accurate utility maps

The demand for accurate utility maps is growing rapidly. The RD8200G precision locator can be connected with external GNSS systems, such as the Trimble Catalyst, and RD MAP+ to deliver cm-accurate maps, and GPS

A congested area

is a site with multiple cables and pipes buried closely together and often crossing each other, such as industrial or urban environments. Interference is an electrical disturbance that can affect the accuracy of the locator, typically caused by substations and buried or overhead high voltage cables

When damage prevention is at the heart of what you do

Preventing damages to buried infrastructure is one of the biggest challenges for industry professionals.

The RD8200G is our most advanced locator. It enables technicians to carry out their job correctly and efficiently, regardless of complexity.

Usage-logging with GPS positioning, understand how your technicians operate

The RD8200G locator automatically stores all locate parameters providing a comprehensive picture of field operations.

Supervisors or health and safety personnel can analyse the data to assess usage patterns in order to ensure adherence to best-practice and to identify training needs before poor work habits develop.

The information can also be shared with partners or clients to evidence task completion or compliance to service requirements.

Usage data can be exported in multiple file formats – for example KML for Google Maps to confirm where and when work was performed.

RD8200G 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 RD8200G 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 RD8200G offer a set of new features to improve operational efficiency and adherence to best practice.

Swing Warning System to drive correct usage:

Locators must be kept perpendicular to the ground for best accuracy. The RD8200G 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 RD8200G Receivers are backed by a three-year warranty when you register your unit online.
