June 26, 2014, RUIDE’s Sales Manager Jianbin Cen and Sales Engineer Jie Liu visited V.I. Instruments of Rutherford, the exclusive distributor of RUIDE in Johannesburg, South Africa. Mr. Martin Peterson, CEO of Rutherford, and Dave Pendrill, Directing Manager of V.I. Instruments warmly hosted them and held a commercial meeting. Then the RUIDE’s representatives visited the office building, workshop, showroom and the warehouse.

V.I. Instruments was established in 1937. From 1970s, it began to focus on marketing surveying instruments and now has grown to be a leading distributor in the industry. V.I. Instruments realized the distribution corporation with RUIDE in 2013, and dedicates himself to provide more choices and creates values to customers in South Africa as well as neighboring countries like Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia, Swaziland, etc., which makes V.I. Instruments now an important strategic partner of RUIDE in Southern Africa.



June 27, Raymond, the technical manager, carried out a GPS demo to RUIDE’s representatives. After setting a base receiver R90-X on the parking lot of the office building, they drove 7km away to a hillside, which was near an airport and could possibly interfere the signals. They operated the rover to connect the base using internal radio data link. The position was fixed in seconds and the controller showed that a distance of 7.7km between the base and rover was realized. It proves that RUIDE’s R90-X, which is equipped with high performance MDS Rx/Tx radio, is reliable to work in challenging environment in a long working range.



From July 1 to 3, AfricaGEO Conference and Exhibition was held in Cape Town International Convention Center (CTICC). V.I. Instruments together with RUIDE participated to the event and showed a complete range of RUIDE’s key products like total station RTS-822A, GNSS Positioning System R90-X, theodolite, auto level, etc.
