Radiodetection RD500


Cable and Pipe Locator Range

The RD500 system enables location of underground plastic water pipes. 

The RD500 is a locator for underground plastic water pipes. A transonde is used to vibrate the water as it passes through it and across an internal spring system sending a minute sound wave back along the pipe. This sound wave is then detected using the RD500 receiver hence locating the water pipe.



  • Simple operation - a meter deflects showing pick-up of the vibrations on the water pipe 
  • No disruption of services while locating
  • Audible and visual tracing indicator 
  • Variable Power Pulsers (TransOnde) supplied 
  • Distances up to 150 metres may be traced 
  • Locate up to 2 metre depth
