Fluke releases 2052 Advanced Wire Tracer Kit
Fluke has released the 2052 Advanced Wire Tracer Kit to troubleshoot energised and de-energised wires accurately and safely in residential, commercial and industrial environments.
Designed for protection under the most dangerous levels of transient overvoltage, with spikes up to 8,000V that can occur in industrial and utility environments, the kit is suited for scenarios you may encounter in environments like industrial plants, factories and hospitals where critical equipment cannot be taken offline.
Offering the highest protection available on any wire tracer, the Fluke 2052 can find breaks or opens and shorts. Its different modes and functions give you the flexibility to troubleshoot a wide range of electrical wiring and circuitry problems you may encounter on the job.
The 2052-R Receiver detects the signal in wires and cables using two methods, passive tracing without the transmitter for non-contact voltage detection and active tracing with the transmitter for all other modes. The receiver’s tip sensor can trace wires in corners, tight spaces and junction boxes.
The receiver offers a “Quick Scan” mode for energised wire detection and visualisation on the large colour LCD, whereas the “Precision” mode allows for more precise detection of a wire. Based on the highest recorded signal detected from the transmitter, “Breaker” mode can be used for easy breaker and fuse identification while “Non-Contact Voltage Detection” mode traces energised wires without the use of the transmitter.
The 2000-T Transmitter works on energised and de-energised circuits up to CAT IV 600V and features high, low and loop modes. These modes change the strength of the induced signal and can help provide more accurate results, depending on the circuit you’re tracing.
“High” mode is available for normal energised and de-energised circuits while “Low” mode gives precision tracing with a low signal to reduce coupling to nearby wires and metal objects. “Loop” mode can also be employed for closed loop de-energised circuits.
With two transmitter output frequencies, the 2000-T automatically senses whether the system is energised or de-energised and selects a 6kHz or 33kHz output frequency, while eight receiver sensitivity levels provide more sensitivity levels resulting in more flexibility and accuracy when tracing.
The Fluke 2052 Advanced Wire Tracer Kit conveniently comes with everything required to start tracing wires and circuits. The accessory kit includes test leads, test probes, blade and round outlet adapters and alligator clips to connect the transmitter to electrical systems.
Connecting the transmitter to a bare conductor with the included alligator clips and test leads will always provide the most accurate results. However, in situations where a direct connection to a bare conductor is not available, the included i400 Current Clamp can be used with the “Loop” mode to induce a boosted 6kHz signal through the insulation. The kit also includes batteries and a hard carrying case.
