Radiodetection RD8100 Precision Cable Locator with GPS Positioning

Integrated GPS and usage logging options automatically generate data for customer reports, or in-house quality and safety audits to promote best working practices.  It provides an easy interface for mapping databases and survey validation.

Integral logging system records significant locate parameters every second (including positional data for these GPS enabled models) storing up to 1 year of typical usage data.  This provides a comprehensive picture of individual locates and allowing you to assess usage patterns over extended periods. The data generated can be used to ensure adherence to best practice, or to identify training needs before poor work habits develop.  Additionally, the information can be used for internal audits or shared with partners or clients to evidence task completion, or compliance to service requirements. Usage data can be exported in multiple file formats – for example KML for Google Maps to confirm where and when work was performed.

Bluetooth Connectivity with RD8100 with GPS

Store up to 1000 survey measurement records and send data wirelessly to a mobile device or PC using Bluetooth Optional integrated GPS adds positional data without requiring an external device.
