RF Marker Ball Locating
Mark and protect your underground assets
The RD7100 & RD8100 RF marker is used to to mark buried assets and can be locatable by using RD7100 or RD8100 RF marker locator. It accurately pinpoint the location and depth of the assets, ensures minimum downtime during repair or maintenance activities. It also prevents damage which can be costly for both you and your customers.
Combined line and marker location mode
The RF marker locators offer both a combined utility and marker locating mode as well as automatic marker depth measurement, eliminating the typical 2 step manual process. This advanced capability speeds up locate tasks and minimizes missed locates.
Integration with Google Maps
- User can view your survey points on Google Maps Create detailed KML utility maps in real time* and share them directly from the field using the free RD Map android app.
- User can utilize the Google Maps technology to review and correct any errors. The same produce professional maps that can be e-mailed or shared using a compatible app.
*Requires data connectivity. RD Map only works in countries where Google Maps is available.

Marker Balls Options
The RD7100/RD8100 are ergonomically designed to deliver a superior performing locator that provides the user with a light weight, energy efficient, exceptionally well balanced tool which is comfortable for extended periods of use. Despite its weight and form, RD7100/RD8100 range retains the environmental durability associated with an IP65 rating, meaning you can operate it in almost any environment.
90V Transmitter output
The high voltage output capability drives more locate signal onto high impedance target lines such as twisted pair telecoms cables enabling you to detect utilities deeper and further.
This enables the path of a single utility to be found and traced quickly. Directional information is displayed alongside proportional distance arrows to help find the utility and then keep you on its path. The simultaneous display of depth and current information gives confidence the correct utility is being traced even in congested networks. For rough or uneven terrain differentiated audio tones can free the user to concentrate on potential hazards.
Peak+ Mode – speed combined with accuracy
Peak+ mode allows you to add either Guidance or Null arrows to the accuracy of Peak mode
● Adding Guidance gets you to the Peak position faster.
● Adding Null to Peak lets you check for the distortion caused by other utilities, spurs or interference.
