JW Fishers Cable Tracker 1 (CT-1) system was specifically designed to locate and track buried cables including power & communications cables. The system locates cables buried on land or underwater. The CT-1 will track cables and identify fault or break points that are exposed to water.
The Cable Tracker 1 system consists of a shore based Signal Injector and a Cable Tracker Probe.
The Signal Injector is connected to the shore end of the cable and the Cable Tracker Probe is used to track the electromagnetic signal along the length of the cable. In most cases the 1,024Hz signal is injected because the higher frequency has greater accuracy and makes precise pinpointing of the cable easier. When maximum detection distance is required the 25Hz signal generally works best.
If the cable is a power cable at 60Hz (USA) or 50Hz (Europe) it can be tracked without the use of the shore based Signal Injector. If the cable is a communications cable (no AC power lines), the Signal Injector is connected to the cable at the surface and is set at 1,024Hz (if the approximate location of the cable is known) or 25Hz if long range sensitivity is needed. The probe frequency switch can be set at 25, 50, 60, or 1,024HZ to match the signal source.
So effective is the Cable Tracker 1 system for tracking and pinpointing cables, that in many cases the cable can be located and tracked from a small boat on the surface. The operator holds the nose of the probe in the water.
Once the cable is located and tracked from the surface, the diver enters the water and descends to the bottom where the cable is precisely pinpointed.
Power is supplied by six internal AA rechargeable batteries that will last for 12 continuous hours. The included battery charger connects to any 120 vac voltage source (220 vac charger transformer is optional).
The CT-1 is constructed of corrosion proof urethane and PVC to give many years of trouble free performance. The modular construction allows for easy field repair should it ever be necessary.
