This advanced underground utility locator offers powerful performance, high quality results and extreme durability. The Radiodetection RD8100 PTLG contains a unique arrangement of five antennas, allowing the user to select the optimum level of precision for the job in hand. At the heart of each of Radiodetection’s locating antennas is a custom manufactured, precision-ground ferrite to ensure the absolute best in accuracy for all measurements.


With locating operations becoming more complex, professionals require more powerful, flexible tools. The integrated GPS and usage-logging options automatically capture key locate parameters, which in turn provides a comprehensive picture of individual locates and usage patterns for the user. This recorded data can be used to identify training needs before poor work habits develop. The additional features such as Current Direction and iLOC on the cable locator deliver high-precision locates – even in adverse conditions.

The differing locating operations need to meet any and all requirements of the customer, so a high quality instrument is essential in order to deliver exceptional performance in good time. The RD8100 PTLG exceeds expectation with its abundance of features such as StrikeAlert, which delivers visual and audio warnings of shallow cables reducing the risk of accidents, and TruDepth, which ensures the locator can only give depth readings when it is correctly orientated.
