Catalog ID: PTC-2

The PTC-2 Phase Tracer is designed to positively identify the cable phases in a location where many cables come together, as in a manhole. These types of cable are used in power circuits, feeders and distribution networks. The device will also identify the individual phases in a three-phase power cable. The PTC-2 Phase Tracer has three major components: a pulse transmitter, a pulse detector phase tracer, and a pick up coil.For best results the cable should be disconnected from any load impedance with the three-phase conductors tied together and grounded at the far end. However, the device will operate satisfactorily while still connected to low impedance loads.

  • Transmitter (8030TC / 8012TC): Continuously adjustable output current
  • Low operating voltage
  • Output ammeter
  • Input circuit breaker switch with “on” pilot light
  • Detector (TCD2A): High gain transistor amplifier circuit
  • Sensitive pickup coil
  • Rotary switch with “off” plus five sensitivity level
  • 50 division meter indicating relative strength of signal
  • Effective Identification - device can be used on shielded cable, unshielded cable and lead-jacketed cable
  • Complete, compact and portable - for simple and quick use in the field
  • Simple Operation - with a minimal amount of user training testing can begin
