Thank you for your interest in Radiodetection’s RD7000+
cable and pipe locator.
The RD7000+ delivers the very latest in cable and pipe
location technology in a powerful yet ergonomic and lightweight design.
Please read this user manual before attempting to use the
RD7000+ system.
Radiodetection products, including this manual, are under
continuous development. The information contained
within is accurate at time of publication; however the
RD7000+, this manual and all its contents are subject to
change.
Radiodetection Limited reserves the right to modify the
product without notice and some product changes may
have taken place after this user manual was published.
Contact your local Radiodetection dealer or visit
www.radiodetection.com for the latest information about
the RD7000+ product family, including this manual.

׳°±®¬¿²¬ ²±¬·½»Ù»²»®¿´
The performance of any cable and pipe locator may be
affected when used in close proximity to ferrous materials
such as manhole covers, steel-toe boots and nearby
vehicles. Keep a distance of one or two meters from
these objects when taking critical measurements such as
depth and current readings.
This instrument, or family of instruments, will not be
permanently damaged by reasonable electrostatic
discharge and has been tested in accordance with IEC
61000-4-2:1995. However, in extreme cases temporary
malfunction may occur. If this happens, switch off, wait
and switch on again. If the instrument still malfunctions,
disconnect the batteries for a few seconds.

Í¿º»¬§
personnel only.
Radiodetection locators detect almost all buried cables
and most conductors, but there are some which do not
radiate signals and which Radiodetection locators cannot
detect. Radiodetection locators do not indicate whether
a signal is from a single cable, several buried side by side
or one above another. Exercise caution and due diligence
when conducting any survey.
Making a direct connection to live power lines is
extremely dangerous to life. Do not attempt any direct
to do so.
WARNING! The transmitter is capable of
outputting potentially lethal voltages. Take care when
applying signals to any pipe or cable and be sure to
notify other technicians who may be working on the
line.
WARNING! Reduce audio level before using
headphones to avoid damaging your hearing.
WARNING! This equipment is NOT approved for
use in areas where hazardous gases may be present.
WARNING! When using the transmitter, switch off
the unit and disconnect cables before removing the
battery pack.
WARNING! The RD7000+ will detect almost all
buried conductors but there are some objects that
do not radiate any detectable signal. The RD7000+,
or any other electromagnetic locator, cannot detect
these objects so proceed with caution. There are
also some live cables which the RD7000+ will not be
able to detect in Power mode. The RD7000+ does
not indicate whether a signal is from a single cable or
from several in close proximity.

Þ¿¬¬»®·»WARNING! Batteries can get hot after prolonged
use at full output power. Take care while replacing or
handling the batteries.

Battery disposal
Batteries should be disposed of in accordance with your
company’s work practice, and/or the relevant laws or
guidelines in your country or municipality.

Applying a double-ended transmitter connection is a useful technique for positively tracing and identifying a target line in a situation such as a heavily congested industrial site. provided there are access points at each end of the line. This method of applying the transmitter signal is ideal for has been made to two points on the same line. This is because when using a single ended connection ground return. usually because the target line is deeper than the line carrying the return signal. or the return path may be a better electrical conductor than the target line.
