  • Cable & Pipe Avoidance

    Radio Detection

    The C.A.T4 and Genny4 range is designed to assist in avoiding buried cables and pipes during excavation, reducing the risk of injury to personnel and damage to utilities. The C.A.T4 is designed to detect signals – whether generated by the Genny4, inherently radiating from metallic services, or from the complimentary range of Sondes (Mice) and accessories designed to enable the location of non-conductive services.


    The RD2000 SuperC.A.T is an enhanced version of the Cable Avoidance Tool and adds higher sensitity and multiple frequencies to what is available with the C.A.T4. Multiple frequency reception allows location of harder to detect insulated assets such as twisted pair telecom cables or insulated pipe joints. The RD2000 is ideal for use in electrically noisy environments.

  • Precision Locators

    Radio Detection

    Radiodetection’s precision locators are designed for optimal locate performance for damage prevention professionals working in all industries and utilities.

    Built on over 40 years of locator innovation, precision manufactured antennas and advanced digital processing enable operators to detect and react to even the extremely small signals associated with difficult to locate utilities. 

    The Precision Locate range comprises the fully featured, multifunction RD8100™, the innovative Marker Locators, the utility-specific RD7100™+ and the single frequency RD5000™WL for the water and gas industries.

    The RD8100 adds the following features to the RD7100

    • Broader range of frequencies
    • Power filters (1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th, and 9th harmonic) for areas with heavy AC interference
    • Five user programmable frequencies between 50Hz and 1000Hz
    • Multiple Current Direction frequencies for difficult locates in congested areas
    • High Frequency Current Direction (4 kHz-CD) for high impedance lines such as tracer wire, detectable tape, and other target lines. (Requires T10 transmitter)
    • Broad peak mode for very weak signals or deep target lines (over 30 ft)
    • Optional long range Bluetooth link between Receiver and Transmitter (up to 1400 ft) for remote control of transmitter’s functions. (Requires Bluetooth enabled Transmitter)
    • Optional Built-in GPS with internal memory to store up to 1000 locate points.
