Industrial grade display, for outdoor usage
RD8200 locators and transmitters use transflective low power LCD technology that uses ambient light to improve screen readability in direct sun light and extend battery life.

TruDepth™ and current readout, for extra assurance
Radiodetection’s TruDepth displays precise depth and current measurements, only when the RD8200 is correctly oriented above the target. Measurement consistency gives high confidence that the correct line is being followed.

High performance audio and vibration alerts, for noisy environments
The RD8200 waterproof speaker housing has been tuned to provide optimum resonance for your choice of high or low frequency tones.
5 power output audio levels and vibration alerts, assist technicians working in challenging situations.

The RD8200 range of locators and transmitters simplify the task of distinguishing and tracing utilities in congested networks, near substations or high voltage lines

Current Direction, track the right line
Identify your target amongst a number of parallel utilities by applying a specialized CD signal from a Tx-10 transmitter. CD arrows displayed on the locator confirm you are tracing your target line.

Power Filters™, works where other locators wont
When a transmitter can’t be connected, tracing individual power lines through dense networks can be a real challenge. Conflicting or powerful signals confuse or combine to create a wash of signal.

A single key press enables the use of the harmonic properties of power signals to establish if a signal comes from one source, or from multiple cables which you can then trace and mark.

Dynamic Overload Protection, rejects unwanted interference
Automatically filters out interference, enabling use in electrically noisy environments such as near substations or overhead power lines.
