Radiodetection’s RD1000™ Ground Penetrating Radar System
The RD1000™ is a ground penetrating radar system that allows the user to see almost any underground feature. Unlike a traditional locator, the RD1000™ uses radar technology (specifically in the UHF/VHF frequencies) and produces a visual map with characteristic cone-shaped images.
The main advantage of this technology is that the RD1000™ can see non-conductive materials including plastic pipes.
The integrated digital signal processor (DSP) analyzes the resulting image map to give the operator information on depth.
The unique ability to see a pipe or cable in its topographical context makes the RD1000™ ideal for locating and excavating utilities.
