Cable Route Tracer

 

Cable Route Tracer CRT8

 

Description

Cable Route Tracer CRT8 is an essential item in the kit for fault location of underground power and telecom cable network.

It is a powerful audio frequency system that can be effectively used for various unique functions such as route tracing of any metallic cable, depth measurement, live loaded cable tracing and ground survey of underground utilities.

The system is capable to trace route of underground cable maximum 10km, and find out the depth up to 5 meter, by triangulation method. This method is found to give more accurate results in presence of other metallic utilities in close proximity.

The system is accurately identifying the wanted cable from the bunch of cables in communication network.

The system can be used to trace route of loaded live cable with the help of receiver unit and search coil in passive mode.

It is also used to carry out ground survey and metallic pipe route tracing in inductive mode effectively.

 

Application

It is used for route tracing of any underground metallic cable in communication, power transmission, distribution and signal cable networks or cable fault location service provider. It is also used to identification of wanted cable from bunch of cables in communication network.

 

Features

Route tracing of buried underground any metallic cables up to 10 km max length.

LCD Bar-graph on Audio frequency receiver unit for precise indication of cable route tracing.

Route tracing of underground loaded live cables with passive frequency and inductive coupling.

Peak and null reception methods for route tracing of cables.

Depth measurement of buried cables up to 5 m with triangulation method.

Ground survey of underground metallic utilities.

Pin-Pointing of contact nature faults.

Possibility of injecting the signal in 220-240V live cables through separation filter (Optional)

Inductive coupling in a particular cable using transmitter tong (Optional)

Identification of cable from bunch of cables in communication cable network.

Rugged construction and easy to carry on site.

 

Working Principle

The Audio Frequency Generator injects an Audio frequency signal into the cable which generates an electromagnetic field around it. This field is concentric to the cable & is present over the entire length. The presence of this field is detected by a highly selective and sensitive receiver with a search coil.

 

Function

The audio frequency signal is passes through the cable conductor an electromagnetic field of sending frequency is develops around on the conductor. When the search coil axis is passing in the developed field, it will sense the field and transmits to the receiver unit. The receiver amplifies that signal and indicates in terms of maximum bar-graph and sound in headphone on the cable. When the search coil is going away from the field the signal indication and sound will reduce.
