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
You do not need to touch the bare wire with the probe. However, you must connect the transmitter to an exposed conductor in the wire. The transmitter has built in adapters for type F coaxial connectors, telephone connectors, and Ethernet connectors. It also has a blade for inserting in the more common type of automobile fuse block and an alligator clip for attaching to an exposed conductor.

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
I wouldn't recommend it. You would have to disconnect the cable (all three wires) from the circuit breaker panel and make sure that it was not live. It would be dangerous. This set is not designed for power wiring. I would suggest one of the many line voltage detecting probes. They are much less expensive.

what tone/signal does the transmitter send and what is the reciever capable of detecting?
Asked by: copperhead
The tone produces a repetitive beeping sound from the probe. the cable or cables that you are tracking may not be connected to one another or to anything else. The receiver will make a rather loud continuous buzz if it is near power wiring.

Lan WireTracker Tone and Probe Wire Tracer is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 53.

Product worked well saving hours of time tracing wires on classic bus restoration of a 1963 Golden Eagle Continental Trailways bus to a first class motor home that started in 1982 by my brother, a engineer with Boeing. He passed away 4 years ago and I just inherited his pride and joy a few months ago. Now systems are working as he designed them 27 years ago. All work was done by him over a 10 year period. Brake lights now work, heating system boiler now works, on board diesel generator now works, found broken wire on air over electric brake light switch, and a number of other systems are now up and running thanks to Sperry's wire tracker.

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.

It is nice that the probe stores in the tracer. All of the necessary adapters are permanently attached to the transmitter and store inside the rear panel, so you won't loose anything. This device is not meant to identify individual conductors in a cable; it just allows you to follow the cable by putting the probe near the cable. The probe must be within an inch or so of the cable to detect it. Like similar devices, it can be difficult to separately identify cables that run next to each other for some distance. The tracer probe emits a loud buzz if it is placed next to energized power wiring of a low voltage cable that runs next to power wiring. The tracing tone will overpower the buzz in most circumstances. My unit would not work out of the package. The problem turned out to be in the probe. One of the battery contacts was damaged. I might have damaged it when inserting the little button cells. So be careful. A little careful bending of the contact with a small screwdriver fixed the problem.

Will track through plywood and drywall, has visual and audio signal. Saved me a lot of time tracking down where my problem was.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't work well This simply didn't work as well as I expected. The toner couldn't distinguish between lines. The unit didn't make a clear audible signal. I will be returning it.
