Megger (formerly Biddle) 656621The unit can be used to trace either energized or de-energized cables.
The AccuTrace Cable Route Tracer consists of a transmitter, which energizes
the line with a traceable signal, and a portable receiver, which detects the
signal. The transmitter can energize the line either by magnetic induction
from a built-in antenna or by direct conductive connection to the metallic
line. Conductive coupling allows discrimination between multiple utility
cables in a common trench and trace the lines of interest. Inductive coupling
lets the signal be transmitted without a direct metal to metal connection.
The operation can trace an energized cable using a distinctive transmitted
signal. Cables without exposed terminations can also be traced. Cable, pipe,
and metallic conduit can all be traced.
