The Radiodetection RD7100 is a geophysical surveying instrument that’s powered by their most advanced locating technologies. It’s used in locating, tracing, identifying and fault-finding in relation to underground cables, pipes and drains. Each model is optimized for a specific industry (telecoms, water, gas, power, petrochem, etc.), so users benefit from the simplicity of having menu options and capabilities matched to their specific requirements. Some of these industry-specific customer requirements may include detecting and pinpointing underground utilities, scanning for buried utilities before excavation, tracing and differentiating specific target utilities, or improving work practices (e.g. providing proof of work, identifying training needs, ensuring high quality of work). Some of the RD7100’s main features are the Guidance mode (which enables the path of a single utility to be found and traced quickly and the display of directional information alongside proportional distance to help locate the utility and keep the user on its path) and Peak+ mode (which allows users to add either Guidance or Null arrows to the accuracy of Peak mode and results in speed combined with accuracy). They’ve also kept their user interface simple and consistent with their previous precision locators to reduce retraining costs. Being able to accurately mark buried assets ensures minimum downtime during repair or maintenance activities and prevents damage which can be costly to the company as well as its clients.

Ground Penetrating Radar Debuts in Hawaii…

Thursday, September 3rd, 2015

Radiodetection recently debuted their ground-penetrating radar system (the RD1000+) that has high-performance subsurface imaging for buried utilities. It is rugged, competitively priced and features ultra wide-band sensors capable of detecting a wide range of buried utilities without the expense and complexity associated with multiple frequency GPR. It can even detect non-conductive ceramic and plastic pipes and ducts (which would otherwise require tracer wire or sondes to detect using an electromagnetic locator) at depths of up to 8m / 27’ deep. Advanced DynaQ signal processing optimizes signal quality, providing image updates in real-time and superior levels of detail. Using a compactflash card together with the dedicated RD1000+ ImageView software helps document and analyze surveys easily. The modular design is made from durable weatherproof (IP66 rated) materials, and its 48 lbs weight is well-supported by a range of wheel types and accessories including hard or soft travel cases (or an optional flight case to protect the entire system during transportation).
