EVERETT, Wash. Oct. 27, 2014 - Amprobe® introduces the AT-7000 Advanced Wire Tracer with new features and technologies that simplify wire tracing and breaker identification. The tracer, available in two different kits, combines a receiver and powerful transmitter to locate energized and de-energized wires, breakers, and fuses.
The AT-7000 features the new Smart Sensor™ patented sensor array combined with an advanced signal processor that measures small changes in the detected signal multiple times per second for unmatched precision and ease of use for tracing energized wires in walls, floors, and ceilings. Wire orientation and direction, which are displayed on the large, dynamic LCD color display, are accurate within two inches (5 cm).
The shape of the tracer's tip sensor allows tracing in hard to reach areas, corners, and tight spaces. The Breaker Mode's "scan and locate" feature clearly identifies a specific breaker or fuse, eliminating the multiple false positive readings common in older technology tracing tools.
The transmitter features three power modes: "high" for normal circuits, "low" for precision tracing in difficult areas, and "clamp," which provides a boosted 6 kHz signal using the signal clamp (included in kit AT-7030; optional in kit AT-7020) to improve accuracy and performance when there is no access to bare conductors. The transmitter automatically selects the optimal signal frequency (6 kHz or 33 kHz) for fast and accurate tracing on energized and de-energized circuits.
The AT-7000 receiver features non-contact voltage detection of energized wires from 90-600 V and 40-400 Hz with adjustable sensitivity for use in a wide range of applications. The Signal Booster Rechargeable Battery Pack (included in kit AT-7030; optional in kit AT-7020) boosts the transmitted signal for more accurate tracing in difficult environments and automatically recharges when the transmitter is plugged into an energized circuit.
