Hipotronics PTC-2 Cable ID & Phase Tracer

Ideal for identifying individual phases of 3-phase direct buried or conduit installed cable. The PTC-2 is designed to positively identify the cable phases in a location where many cables come together, as in a manhole. This type of cable is 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 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.
  • 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
