RD7100 Cable and Pipe Locator

A precision buried utility locator, specifically designed for use in the construction industry. Built with the most advanced tracing utilities, trace underground cables and pipes accurately along a single path. The guidance mode, gives directional information using arrows allowing you to stay on the right cables path.

Packed with handy features, the RD7100, StrikeAlert feature gives a visual and audible warning of shallow cables helping avoid risk. Depth measurement readings help to assess how deep cables are buried, compass orientation’s available when using in active mode which determines and displays the orientation of the target cable or pipe, when directly over the cable, the TruDepth™ technology gives an accurate depth reading.

The RD7100SL has four active and two passive frequencies that are designed to cover the majority of site locating tasks. The SL’s optimised specifically for the construction industry and Dynamic overload protection technology means even in areas of high interference, a light will flash should the locator has become overloaded and disable functions.

Key Features

  • 4 active locate frequencies – 8kHz (8192Hz) / 33kHz (32768Hz) / 65kHz (65536Hz) / 83kHz (83077Hz)
  • 2 passive locate modes – Power / Radio
  • StrikeAlert™ warning – Gives an audible and visual indication of shallow cables
