Introduction to the Fluke 2052 Advanced Wire Tracer Kit:
The Fluke 2052 Advanced Wire Tracer is a reliable solution for accurately and safely troubleshooting both energized and de-energized wires in a variety of settings, including residential, commercial, and industrial environments up to CAT IV 600 V. This CAT rating provides the highest level of protection available for any wire tracer, guarding against the most hazardous transient overvoltage scenarios, such as spikes up to 8,000 V commonly encountered in industrial and utility environments. This feature is especially critical in settings like industrial plants, factories, and hospitals, where crucial equipment cannot afford to be taken offline.
Tailored Wire Tracing for Every Scenario
Whether addressing electrical wiring and equipment issues in residential homes, commercial buildings, or high-voltage utility plants, the Fluke 2052 is equipped to detect breaks, opens, and shorts. With its diverse modes and functions, this wire tracer offers the flexibility needed to troubleshoot a broad range of electrical wiring and circuitry challenges encountered in various professional environments.
Versatile Receiver Tracing Modes
The 2052-R Receiver excels at detecting signals in wires and cables through two methods: passive tracing, which requires no transmitter for non-contact voltage detection, and active tracing using the transmitter for all other modes. The receiver’s tip sensor is adept at tracing wires in challenging spaces such as corners, tight spots, and junction boxes.
– “Quick Scan” mode swiftly identifies energized wires, providing visualizations on the large color LCD.
– “Precision” mode ensures more accurate wire detection.
– “Breaker” mode simplifies breaker and fuse identification based on the highest recorded signal from the transmitter.
– “Non-Contact Voltage Detection” mode allows the tracing of energized wires without using the transmitter.
Diverse Transmitter Power Modes
The 2000-T Transmitter functions on both energized and de-energized circuits up to CAT IV 600 V and features high, low, and loop modes. These modes adjust the induced signal’s strength, facilitating more precise results based on the specific circuit being traced.
– “High” mode is suitable for normal energized and de-energized circuits.
– “Low” mode is ideal for precision tracing with a low signal to minimize coupling to nearby wires and metal objects.
– “Loop” mode is designed for closed-loop de-energized circuits.
Dual Transmitter Output Frequencies
The 2000-T automatically detects whether the system is energized or de-energized, selecting a 6 kHz or 33 kHz output frequency accordingly.
Eight Receiver Sensitivity Levels
With eight sensitivity levels, the receiver offers increased flexibility and accuracy during the tracing process.
The Fluke 2052 Advanced Wire Tracer Kit includes all the essentials for wire and circuit tracing. The accessory kit comprises test leads, test probes, blade and round outlet adapters, and alligator clips for connecting the transmitter to electrical systems. While a direct connection to a bare conductor using the included alligator clips and test leads ensures the most accurate results, the kit also features the i400 Current Clamp for situations where a direct connection is not feasible. In such cases, the “Loop” mode can be employed to induce a boosted 6 kHz signal through the insulation. The kit is complete with batteries and a durable carrying case for added convenience.
