Comprising a C.A 6881E transmitter and a C.A 6881R receiver, the LOCAT-N C.A 6681 is simple to use on both  current-carrying and non-current-carrying mains circuits.

Its digital technology overcomes interference and disturbance signals to provide precise location details. The receiver displays the value of the signal measured, which is also shown on the bar  chart or in the form of acoustic signals whose amplitudes vary in proportion to the signal distance. This makes it very simple to follow electrical cables through walls or detect buried pipes in gardens.

To guide you and simplify your work, the receiver can quickly identify the circuit-breaker or fuses corresponding to the socket to which the transmitter is connected.  It can be used to detect short-circuits or cuts on existing installations.
