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. 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.

Does this work on underground conduits for break in electrical wires?

Asked by AB November 9, 2015

NO would not work for dog frnce wire, cheaper one at harbour freight worked great

Will this work for dead (no power electrical outlet?

Answers

YES! I have used it that way several times. Clip the red lead of the transmitter to the UNPOWERED black wire in the outlet.. Clip the transmittter's black lead to ground. The receiver will pick-out the correct black wire back in your power panel UNLESS there is a physical break in the wire between outlet and power panel.

Can you find a broken wire with Sperry Lan WireTracker Tone and Probe Wire Tracer

Asked by Doc March 22, 2020

Not the best tool, for that job. If you are sure where it is on the switch, you can determine whether or not the signal is coming through, and if you have access to the whole line, you can trace it out. There are better testers out there what can identify where and how the line is broken. Not all are expensive, but that depends on the job you are doing.

Will this track phone lines as well?

As long as the wires are not carrying any power, yes. One of the adapters that come with it is for adapting automotive blade-type fuses.

YES! The receiver will detect the signal through insulation. Naturally it will detect it much LOUDER if you are able to physically touch the metal wire.

Very easy to use. More homeownery than pro but does the job. Using at work to track Cat5, phone lines etc in a large facility. Louder tone would be nice but overall a decent tool. Probe falls out of cradle easily so use care if not hung vertically from a belt or similar. Probably rig something with a small patch of closed cell foam, rubber band or a small Velcro dot to keep it where it belongs..

To be honest i think its a bit over priced for a basic toner with no line test or other functionality. i have bought 2 the first one worked but i regret getting it for the price. the second one i got on a pinch and was kicking my self for forgetting my good toner. worst of all the 2nd one came damaged. the wire for rj45 was coming out of the unit and not toning.

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.

Great tracer!
Customer review from homedepot.ca logo
It exactly does job as they mentioned in the product description, the only product improvement needed is battery for receiver should be AAA instead of LR44 as LR44 drains very quickly.

this wire tracker does the job, I would like to five it 5 stars but the 2 things I do not like are: 1.- is supposed to auto-shut off after 45 minutes, but many times while I'm using it, it might shut off randomly after a few minutes 2.- if you are a little rough unplugging the f connector, it might come off, it really does not take effort at all for it to fall off and then you have to use the clips instead. other than that, like I said it does the job, and is not expensive
