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.

The  Fluke 2042 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 receiver also incorporates a torch function for working in dimly lit locations.


For all applications (live or dead cables).
