Cable and Pipe Locator


Cable and Pipe Locator

The #CL10 Cable and Pipe Locator is ideal for pinpointing the location of electrical cables and metal, water, or gas pipes behind walls, above ceilings or under floors. The instrument can also trace circuits, detect open- and short-circuits, find outlets covered by plaster, identify a circuit’s breaker, and locate blockages in plastic pipes.


Best For:



  • Makes it safe to break through any wall by revealing and locating hidden infrastructure up to 6.6 ft. (2m) behind it
  • Eliminates the need to find and read construction drawings before starting a job
  • The transmitter and receiver communicate on any of eight channels and display readings on a big, bright, multi-function graphic LCD. Both units also include a flashlight and a buzzer that can be muted
  • Makes it easy to identify the breaker associated with an energized or de-energized AC outlet
  • The transmitter can also operate as an AC/DC voltmeter with a range of 12 to 600V
  • The transmitter has three power levels; the receiver has variable sensitivity
  • The receiver’s display can be backlit
  • Compatible with one- or two-pole circuits
  • Using the included metal rod, the instrument can locate blockages and constrictions in plastic pipes
