The Cable Locator consists of a transmitter and a receiver. The transmitter sends a digitally coded line number which is selectively received and displayed as a digit by the receiver. A field strength indicator and a button-controlled sensitivity fine adjustment enable easy location to the transmitter signal. Using several transmitters with different line numbers a contact-free sorting of up to 16 lines is possible. The transmitter signal strength is pre-adjustable by means of the >> low << and >> high << switch.
Typical applications are e.g. locating line interruptions in cables, locating lines in wall, locating short-circuits in lines, locating bottlenecks (obstructions) in installation pipes, sorting of up to 16 lines (several transmitters required). The working range depends on the surrounding medium (water, earth, humid walls, or other shieldings) and varies between 0 cm to approx. 40 cm, depending on type of application
