Ideal for identifying individual phases of 3-phase direct buried or
conduit installed cable. 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 pickup 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.
