  • Non-Contact Voltage Detection
  • Ten adjustable Receiver sensitivity levels
  • Hi-contrast Receiver LCD
  • Supports signal induction with CT-400 Signal Clamp (included with the AT-8030 model)
  • Attaches to TIC-410A Hot Stick for extended reach (TIC-410A sold separately)

SKU: 5088760 Category:


The AT-8000 is the first CAT IV 600 V Advanced Wire Tracer Series designed to protect electricians from the most dangerous level of transient overvoltage spikes up to 8,000 V known to occur in industrial environments. The Receiver is equipped with patented Smart Sensor™ technology, which finds and displays the location and orientation of Energized wires in walls, floors and ceilings on the large color TFT LCD screen.

The Scan and Locate feature clearly identifies the single correct breaker or fuse, eliminating the confusion from multiple false positive readings common in older technology tracing tools. Embedded help screens make set-up easy and error free for novice users and experts alike.

Featuring three power modes “high”, “low”, and “loop” and two output frequencies (6 kHz and 33 kHz), the AT-8000-T Transmitter incorporates the best technologies available for optimal wire tracing and breaker identification on both energized and de-energized circuits. The AT-8000-T automatically sets the signal based on detected voltage and prompts the user to set the power level based on the application, delivering consistently accurate results.

The optional CT-400 Signal Clamp for inducing signal into wires without access to bare conductors is included in the AT-8030 kit.
