Product Overview

A must-have tester for audio/video installers and datacom technicians. The WireTracker Wire Tracer raises the standard for classic tone and probe products. Patented unit traces non-energized wire for correct identification while the unique design nestles the probe within the unit to keep components together during transportation or storage to avoid loss. Different terminations are also self-contained within the unit, making it a must-have for Voice-Data-Video installations or remodels. The transmitter connects to un-energized cables, wires or fuses while the receiver probe traces the wire path. Audio and visual indicators quickly identify the signal strength to allow for precise wire identifications while the adjustable sensitivity dial ensures positive identification of a single wire when multiple wires are routed in close proximity. Multi-purpose wire tracer identifies coax, CAT5, speaker, phone, or any non-energized (non-live) wires. Adapter plugs include: RJ-45, RJ-11, coax, automotive fuse blade, and insulated clamps. Unit features both audible (beeping) and visual (bright light) indication. Operates from (2) AAA batteries (transmitter) and (4) LR44batteries (receiver) and includes an auto-off function in the transmitter to save battery life (batteries included in package). Engineered to withstand a 10 ft. drop and 250 lbs. crush rated with a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

Customer Questions & Answers

Will this work for dead (no power electrical outlet?

Good Day! I have an electrical outlet that shows as no power going to it. The outlet is on one of four circuits in our downstairs, so I can turn off power to all of downstairs? Will this device allow me to trace the wire from 14 gauge wire that is dead to another outlet? This would enable to trouble shoot which wire is the problem?
Asked by: JerryA
Yes it will work with unpowered house wiring. I was very happy with the results. I used a volt meter to ensure power was off. In my case the wire was 12 gage but any wire should work as long as there is no power to the circuit. Simply connect the 2 alligator clips provided to the black and white wires you want to trace. Do not connect to the ground because ground is common throughout the house, not just the circuit you are interested in. Next just push the button on the receiver and follow the repeating beep. The beep gets louder as you get closer to the path of the wire. You don't have to be right on it. I could hear the signal clearly if the probe was within about 12 inches from wall/ceiling canceling the wire. When I found a plug on the same circuit I just put the probe directly on the outlet (no electrical contact) and the beep got very loud and clear. I would never have found my problem without a device like this one. The wire I traced went to a couple of plugs in the same wall as expected but did not go under the house as I expected. Instead it went into the ceiling, then all the way across the house to an outlet there. My problem was in an outlet more than 30 feet away from the light that lost power. Great device for a reasonable price. about half of other devices I looked at.

Asked by: Houstonite
Yes you can detect it through the insulation. You do not have to touch the bare wire.

Lan WireTracker Tone and Probe Wire Tracer is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from No Bueno I'll first start by saying that I work in installing andtroubleshooting home security and audio systems. Too many times have I been in a customer's home trying to locate a standard 22-2 or 22-4 wire and getting very weak to no signal at all. I'm installing a 5.1 and 3 additional rooms of audio out on a job today. I realized that one of the locations where a volume control is supposed to be is covered by sheetrock, it happens from time to time. So I run back to the truck to grab my trusty Sperry Wire Tracer, hook it up to the 16-4 that's ran back to the homerun. And again. No signal. My buddy goes and grabs his just to be on the safe side,and led us to the correct spot on the wall instantly

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not very loud. This little gadget would be fine for home use, but was so quiet that in the environment where I tried it it couldn't be heard. The way it all fits together in its own case is very convenient, however the probe needed a bit more filler so it doesn't fall out in a tool bag. Product has a lot of good things going for it, however falls short on practicality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just to clairfy the purpose of this tool Please note that this product is NOT intended to follow burried wires by running the transmitter or receiver along the wall. This product is meant to directly connect to the end or beginning of a wire run. In my case it was old circuts in a house. The breaker kept tripping so i left it off and used this tool to trace a non-live wire run. I connected the alligator clips to the dead outlet wires and made sure the power wire that was conncted to the breaker was the same one as the dead outlet. I got a little interference but it only beeps when youre right on the other end of the wire (in hand and not burried). The description may be misleading or need clarification, but when the product is used as intended, it works well. The sound could be a little louder but thats my only semi-negative. Unless you're deaf, you'll hear it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works ok tracer button very hard to hold down. I used it many times in the past two years for networks. I bought it for the storage bag and fact it can do almost everything. Ok volume. Sometimes it seems to tone across other lines.The remote probe button us recessed and very hard to reach with your thumb. It hurts to hold it down even for a few seconds much less tracing a bunch of wires. . Nice idea to keep it running on it's own but it gets stored in it's own case. Needs an on and off button then make the tone button taller.
