Centros Manager (download Link)

Installation instructions (Win 7 pro, Win 7 Enterprise)

The Centros manager program is used for the RD7000 and RD8000 locators and TX transmitters (10, 5, 3, 1) It will not work with the newer models of locators (RD7100, RD8100 or marker locators). For these locators use the program RDManager. Please contact Radiodetection technical service if you should need assistance.


Step 1 -Download

Download the latest Centros manager from




Step 2 - Zip file

Open the .zip file and copy the files to a directory on your computer. (you cannot run these files from within the .ZIP file)

Step 3 Program install

“Right click” on the Centros_Manager_13_64_en.exe (64 bit shown) install program. From the popup select “Run as administrator” answer any prompts to completion. (yes, trust, next etc.) Give it time. It seems to stop mid installing but wait a few min to let it finish.

Step 4 Atmel Driver installation

Due to a windows issue the ATMEL driver will not be properly installed. So when you plug in the locator the computer thinks it is a Bossa camera and it launches that driver. This is a one-time easy fix!

Navigate to Windows “Device Manager”

  • Select “Windows start button”
  • Select “Control panel”
  • Select “Device Manager”

Double click on “Ports (COM & LPT)” to open it up

Connect the locator via the USB port and Turn on the locator and a Bossa driver(or some other USB device) will appear.

“Right click” on this driver and select “Update driver software”

  • Select “Browse my computer for driver software”
  • Select “Let me pick from a list”
  • Select the “atml_6124 driver and select next!
  • Finish all prompts to complete this process!


Step 5 Restart the computer

Disconnect the locator and restart the computer. Once complete Centros manager is ready to use!
