EasyTest500 / Probe510 can be used with all types of cables such as power cables, telephone cables, bell wires, all classes of data cables, coax cable, wire harnesses in motor vehicles and many others. The EasyTest500 generates six different search signal frequencies, three continuous tones and three alternating tones. Users select different tones by pressing keys on the unit, status is displayed with LEDs.
Each search signal can be fed on to live telecommunications lines. The device is protected up to 500 volts AC. All connection cables are provided with an effective strain relief and isolation.
The battery compartment is separated from the electronics and equipped and secured with a captive screw. The signal receiver Probe510 detects the search signal without any contact to the wire under test up to a distance of 0.6 meter. This allows for the precise location of the cable path in thick bundles of cables, in walls or flush-mounted, and pair of wires in the distribution or in the bundle.
The Probe510 has a green signal LED with filter function, this LED will only light up when used with the 1 kHz signal of the EasyTest. This makes locating cables easy in noisy environments or in distribution boxes with interfering signals such as 50 Hz. The built-in white LED provides an illumination capability allowing users to find cables and identify wire colours in dark environments. The rugged, high-resistive test tip constructed out of non-conductive solid carbon fibre is easily replaceable.
The KE501 Electrical Cable & Line Tracer Kit comprises of an EasyTest500 tone generator and Probe510 inductive receiver packaged in a convenient carrying pouch. The kit allows technicians to find any kind of cable, wires and pairs without contact in the shortest possible time. The ET500 also indicates voltages on the cable, recognises the polarity and can be used as a continuity tester. The Probe 510 has a high-grade non conductive carbon fibre tip that may be easily replaced in the field for years of uninterrupted service.
