Easily Locate Buried Power and Communications Cables
JW Fishers Cable Tracker 1 (CT-1) system was specifically designed to locate and track buried power and communications cables. The system will locate cables buried on land or underwater. The CT-1 will not only locate and track cables, but also identify faults or breaks in a cable. An ROV mounted version of the CT-1 is also available (CT-1R). The Cable Tracker 1 system consists of the Signal Injector control box and the Cable Tracker Probe. The Signal Injector is attached to an exposed part of the cable on land. A 25 Hz or 1,024 Hz signal is induced into the cable. The operator carries or swims with the Cable Tracker Probe along the length of cable receiving the transmitted signal.
Choose Your Frequency
Typically the lower frequency 25 Hz signal is initially used to locate the cable as it can be detected from greater distances. Once the approximate location of the cable is determined the 1,024 frequency is used to precisely pinpoint the exact location of the cable. When searching for power cables it is not generally necessary to use the Signal Injector as the Probe can detect the 60 Hz (USA) or 50 Hz (Europe) frequency of an AC voltage line. A switch on the Probe allows the operator to select the frequency. So effective is the Cable Tracker 1 system at tracking and pinpointing cables that in many cases the cable can be located and tracked in shallow water from a small boat on the surface.
Easy and Intuitive Operation
The operator places the nose of the probe in the water and sweeps it back and forth until the signal is received. Once the cable is located it can easily be tracked from the surface. If necessary, a diver can be deployed to precisely pinpoint the cable position.
Standard Power Options
Six internal AA rechargeable batteries power the Probe allowing it to operate for 12 continuous hours. A 120 vac and 12 v dc battery chargers are included with the system. The Signal Injector is powered by 120 vac. A 220/120 voltage converter and 220 volt charger are available for operating from a 220 vac power supply.
