We develop devices that improve the
success of locating tracer wires.
Are You Locating Tracer Wires Wrong?
As more non-metallic utility lines are installed, tracer wires are an essential part of locating these lines. If you are familiar with tracer wire construction, you have most likely seen one or two wires sticking out of the ground. This is incorrect for 2 reasons. Learn why When the ends of tracer wires are left ungrounded, this significantly reduces the ability to locate them accurately. However, Tracer Wire Technologies has developed a solution for the problem. With over 51 years of combined locating experience, we have created a device that not only grounds tracer wires, but allows the grounding configuration to be disconnected, thus providing a way to selectively locate the intended path.
We understand how difficult it can be to locate tracer wires; therefore, we knew our products had to be safe, simple and effective. Our “Grounding Devices” provide an intuitive design for novice technicians, while also providing enhanced locating capabilities for the most experience locator. We designed our products with 3 major components in mind: grounding, isolation, and easy to use. A single switch gives the operator complete control of the line that they are trying to locate. A switch cover provides a clear indication of the grounding status. Locator terminals offer a convenient connection for the transmitter. See for yourself.
CAN YOU SPOT THE PROBLEM?
If you have any formal line locator training, you know an ungrounded tracer wire is nearly impossible to locate accurately. Our Grounding Devices solve this problem with an intuitive design which ensures the line is never left ungrounded.
A SOLUTION FOR EACH INDUSTRY
With multiple color options available, we can accommodate almost any tracer wire application. We also have a discrete model for high traffic areas. Click here for more information about our color coding options.
ACCURACY IS EVERYTHING
The wrong locate can lead to serious consequences. Locating tracer wires is accomplished through line segmentation and proper grounding. For more information about line locator training, visit Center Line Resource.
