Cable and wire tracer TraceMate TM30

TM30

New product

  • Traces cables and wires, also live wires up to 400V;
  • Identifies wires and pairs and circuit breakers;
  • Monitors telecommunication lines;
  • Locates metal tubes and ducts.

TraceMeter TM30 is a cable & wire tracer equipped with monitoring and measuring properties. It can be used also at mains environment, so it is well suitable for both telecom and electric installation work as well as renovation and fault spotting work and much more. With TM30 it is also possible to trace short length wires or single wires, which are usually hard to find. TM30 set includes the TMT30 transmitter and the TMR30 receiver. Several accessories are available.

TraceMeter TM30 is a cable & wire tracer equipped with monitoring and measuring properties.

With TM30 it is also possible to trace short length wires or single wires, which are usually hard to find. TM30 set includes the TMT30 transmitter and the TMR30 receiver. Several accessories are available.

 

TMT30 Transmitter

TMT30 has three easy to use operating modes:

Trace mode device transmits a signal to be traced with the receiver. TMT30 stands voltages up to 400V, so it can be well plugged into e.g. a mains wall socket. Device also displays the voltage at the outputs and the feeding signal current to the target.

In the Meter mode, TMT30 operates as a voltage and frequency counter.

With a special DSLAM test TMT30 can be used to check whether a CO side ADSL modem is present on a seemingly unused line.

TMT30 is weather proof. It operates with six standard AA-size batteries and has long working time. LCD display backlight adjusts automatically according to ambient light.

 

TMR30 Receiver

TMR30 is very versatile: It has three Trace modes to be used to trace and track signals generated by the transmitter on open wires or cables. Cables can be traced from close ranges up to several metre distance.

The three Monitor modes can be used to monitor, or listen, signals over wires or terminals without galvanic contact in several frequency ranges.

TMR30 has fixed internal antennas so it is very compact and easy to use. The LED bar display together with the audible signals reveal the traced target while tracing.

Furthermore TMR30 has an LED work light pointing to the traced spot.

 

TMR30 in monitoring work

With the Powerline monitor mode TMR30 can be used without the transmitter to reveal live wires and wall sockets and which side is the hot contact.

High frequency signals such as broad band wires and terminals can be monitored with the High Freq mode.

With the Audio freq mode audio frequencies can be listened right on the surface of wires.

 

Working in the mains environment

As TMT30 stands up to 400V voltage, it can be used to trace live mains wires and cables such as track down which circuit breaker is the one for a certain wall socket.

 

Telecom wires and cross connections

TM30 is very efficient when wire pairs need to be traced from wide bunches e.g. in a CO. Correspondingly wires from a telephone socket are easy to find at a house MDF terminals.

 

Cable identification

In renovation situations broken and cut mains and telecom cables can be traced and identified very effectively with TM30. Also e.g. surveillance camera cables can be traced in the same way.

 

Undergorund cable tracing

With TM30 even short length underground telecom & mains cables can be traced easily. Below image shows a typical situation of tracking the route of a street light pole feeding cable with the help of a ground rod.

 

General information

  • Both the transmitter and the receiver use alkaline batteries and have low battery warning.
  • Receiver has an internal speaker so external headset is not needed.
  • In case a traced cable can't be reached for galvanic feeding, TMT30 signal can be fed with a PM34 or PM80 clamp-on transformer.
  • TM30 set is delivered in a handy nylon carrying bag.
