Cable Tracers And Locators

Cable Tracers And Locators

Electricians and technicians use cable fault locators to find faults or breaks in underground electrical and communications cable. Wire tracers and cable route tracers are also essential tools for those installing and troubleshooting cable. The instruments trace cables and measure their depth.



Buy Calibrated Wire Tracers Only From Transcat


Because Transcat operates dozens of ISO 17025 Accredited Calibration Labs across the United States and Canada, we are uniquely positioned to offer new instrument calibration services on most of the items we distribute. If your quality system requires that your instruments have a valid calibration certificate at all times, take advantage of our electrical calibration services so that your instrument arrives ready to be put into use.



Tracing Wires and Cables


Transcat provides fault locators from industry leaders that pinpoint faulty grounding. Units include a transmitter and receiver, with transmitters emitting signals into the ground, while the receiver displays the source location. Cable route and wire tracers also come with a transmitter/receiver combination. The receiver relays signal strengths and cable locations. A wire tracer can have the capability to locate breakers, ground lines and live wires.



Selecting a Fault Locator or Wire Tracer


After determining cable testing requirements, consider factors such as minimum resolution, maximum range, output impedances, accuracy, and memory. Is the unit, and its safety rating, workable for your industry, such as power or communications?


When buying a wire tracer, know the type of circuit the instrument will trace and where tracing will occur (walls, floors…). See if audio and/or visual alerts are given and the type of display provided.



The Best Wire Tracers and Fault Locators


The Megger CFL535G is a dual-channel Time Domain Reflectometer featuring high resolution fault location on paired metallic cables. Megger also makes an AccuTrace cable route tracer that can measure the depth of electrical cable buried as deep as 9m. A Greenlee Textron Pulse Ground Fault Locator, such as the PE2003, identifies breaks in buried cable insulation, while an Eagle Eye fault locator handles current leakage of DC systems. Amprobe also builds advanced wire tracing instruments for pinpointing shorts or broken wires.
