The RD5100S is a specialist sonde locator which is optimised to locate transmitting sondes, which are found in drain cameras, sewer cameras and on duct rodding equipment. Sondes are deployed to locate non-metallic services, such as plastic water pipes, electrical and telecommunications conduits and can work on pipes which are made from concrete, ceramic and clay as well as plastic.
The RD5100S locates multiple sonde frequencies including 512Hz / 640 Hz, 8kHz and 33kHz for the maximum level of versatility in locating different sondes in different applications. The overwhelming majority of drain and sewer camera systems will utilise a 512Hz sonde frequency, as it emits a signal which allows it to be used in materials such as cast iron and steel, where a higher frequency sonde cannot be used and in applications where coupling of the signal onto adjacent services is undesirable. General purpose sondes, as well as a small number of sewer camera sondes will operate at a higher frequency of 8kHz and 33kHz, and the RD5100S can also locate these sondes, which gives this locator maximum flexibility on the widest possible range of applications.
One of the features of the RD5100S locator is it's ability to be upgraded easily. Up to 4 active frequencies can be added later as your needs develop allowing this locator to be expanded to undertake other limited service locating work.
