Amprobe’s newest wire tracer combines a Receiver and powerful Transmitter to locate energized and de-energized wires, breakers, and fuses without having to disconnect any equipment. The Receiver features four tracing modes optimized for a range of applications. Its fully automatic breaker tracing capability saves time and eliminates the confusion of multiple false positives by detecting the highest recorded signal in a breaker or fuse. The Transmitter utilizes two optimized frequencies that allows for a clean and reliable signal. The Signal Clamp can be used in applications where there is no access to bare conductors by enabling the Transmitter to induce a signal into a wire through insulation. Whether you’re a novice user or an expert, the AT-6000 Amprobe Advanced Wire Tracer kit will help you get the job done fast.

  1. Bear

    Easy to use !

    Over the years, thousands of wires,hair balls and God knows what ,a good tool will save your butt. Most fire and security systems do not follow color codes, there can be five hundred to a thousand wires. Tracking down shorts breaks, this tool has my life easy.large fire panels multi zones and none of the wires are marked what can I say?

    ✔ Yes, I recommend this product.

  2. Jesse

    Amprobe circuit tracers are the best.

    I’m a commercial electrician and amprobe makes the best circuit tracers hands down. There’s no other competition. The only problem is tracking it down on the job site because no one wants to give it up.

    ✔ Yes, I recommend this product.
