This instrument is designed to identify and trace wires or cables without damaging the insulation.
You can also use it in checking for short circuits and locatingopen circuits and so on. There areSender and Receiver functions included in the instrument.
Tracing of wires ismade possibleeven inside bundles . conduits . behind panels . under carpets . upholstery . etc
Easy to use:Simply connect the transmitter in series with the circuit or wire under test . (i.e.: in place of a blown fuse . across a connector . in series with an open wire . a light bulb socket . etc.) . and scanning the circuit/wire with the tracers flexible probe to find the trouble spot
42 V Ready: for use in the new generation of vehicles with mixed or single 42 Volt systems
Operates on DCvoltages from 6 to 42 volts
Internally protectedagainst power surges and overloads
7″ flexible probe allowsreaching wires in congested places
Transmitter and Receiver LEDs showopen or short circuit conditions
Adjustable sensitivityfor all tracing situations
No wire piercing required .non-contact technology!
Will this detect through the wiring harness covering?
-The answer is YES. This instrument is designed to identify and trace wires or cables without damage the insulation/coving. You can also use it in checking for short circuit and locating open circuits.
Can this be used to trace car and home power wires? of courseusing it on non live powered wires?
-Yes . it can be used to trace car and home power wire . but it needs to disconnect the power to the wire to be checked and remove all the load from the wire.
How do you use the short circuit wire tracker?
-You attach the red alligator clip to the car battery positive post. You attach the black alligator clip to the wire you want to trace. hold the wand (transmitter) tip as close to the wire as you can get. Move the wand along the wire while you listen to the receiver’s tone (or static). Continuously adjust the sensitivity as you move the receiver tip along the wire. It takes no practice at all to get the sensitivity set at the right amount. You may need to open the wire bundle to get the receiver probe tip close enough to the wire you are tracing.
