Fluke 2042 Cable locator
The multipurpose solution to cable location
The Fluke 2042 is a professional general purpose cable locator. It is ideal for tracing cables in walls and underground, locating fuses/breakers on final circuits and locating interruptions and short-circuits in cables and electrical floor heating systems.
It can also be used for tracing metallic water and heating pipes. The unit is supplied as a complete kit comprising of a transmitter and receiver in a purpose-made carry case. The receiver also incorporates a torch function for working in dimly lit locations.
The FLUKE Cable Locator consists of a transmitter and a receiver. The signal generated by the transmitter is made of a modulated current, generating an electro-magnetic field around a conductor. This electro-magnetic field induces a voltage within the receiving coil. The induced voltage is amplified, decoded, and converted to the original signal by the receiver, and finally displayed on the screen. The connecting parameter for the transmitter during an application must be a closed current circuit.
The FLUKE Cable Locator features:
• Finding conductors in walls, conductor interruptions, short-circuits in conductors
• Conductor tracing in the soil
• Detecting fuses and assigning current circuits
• Tracing sockets and distribution sockets having accidentally been covered by plastering
• Detecting interruptions and short-circuits in floor heating
• Tracing metallic water and heating piping
• All application areas (both, voltage-free and live) are performed without using any additional instruments
• Transmitter display indicates the transmission level, the transmission code, as well as the foreign
• Receiver display indicates the reception level, the transmission code, as well as the mains voltage detection
• Automatic and manual sensitivity adjustment
• Acoustic reception signal may be switched off
• Auto-Power-Off function
• Additional lighting function when working under bad lighting conditions
• Additional transmitters are available to extend or distinguish several signals
