Product Overview

  • Essential testing device for A/V installers & datacom technicians
  • Automatically shuts off after 45 minutes of inactivity
  • Backed by a lifetime limited manufacturer warranty
A must-have tester for audio/video installers and datacom technicians, the WireTracker Wire Tracer raises the standard for classic tone and probe products. The 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. Unit features both audible (beeping) and visual (bright light) indication. Engineered to withstand a 10 ft. drop and 250 lbs. crush rated.
  • Adjustable sensitivity to positively identify a single wire when multiple wires are routed in close proximity
  • Identifies coax, CAT 5, speaker, phone or any non-energized wire
  • Adapter plugs included: RJ-45, RJ-11, coax, automotive fuse blade and insulated clamps
  • Requires 2 AAA batteries for the transmitter and 4 LR44 batteries for the receiver (included)
  • Audible and visual indication
  • Features an auto-shutoff after 45 minutes
  • Multi-purpose wire tracer for identifying wires such as coax, CAT 5, speaker, phone or any non-energized (non-live) wires
  • Adjustable sensitivity positively identifies a single wire when multiple wires are routed in close proximity

Will this let me identify wire thru its plastic coating? or do I have to touch the exposed end of the wire?
Asked by: Houstonite
It will identify through plastic, especially vast 5 of 6. 25 pair is a little more difficult for it.

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.

what tone/signal does the transmitter send and what is the reciever capable of detecting?
Asked by: copperhead
Read my review, it is new. Only generates one tone, and the reciever isn't very sensitive. However used with another reciever it works great.

The tone generator was connected to the wall jack in the office, and the probe was used to find the cable in the "media closet." There were several choices of wires hanging down, plus a few that were already terminated. To be honest, there was some minor cross-talk picked up from other cables, but the correct one was positively identified. This was an excellent tool for the application, especially at an affordable price.

I like the many connections and the fact that they are so neatly contained. The downfall was in the probe. It was not very sensitive. Also, the tone sending part of it only had one tone. I prefer a couple in case one is used to pick up in a particular background. Fortunately, I have another prove from another unit that is much more sensitive. That probe combined with this sending unit greatly increased the effectiveness.

It helped avoid crawling to an undesired location in the attic just to have to rewire some lines. Was able to use existing lines instead to route a signal to that location once it was determined which lines corresponded to what cables. It could have been done by trial and error/testing, but the time and effort saved by using the tool is priceless.

I was trying to track 10 gage wire and the insulation proved too thick for the signal to penetrate. BUT I was able to track the wire by clipping the wire at its end to receive the signal. Worked as I hoped on higher gauge wire (smaller diameter/thinner insulation).

I was trying to trace a home run of 12-2 and it did not help in the least. I hope I don't need this for any of the low voltage lines in the house, which is the next part of the work.
