General’s Cable & Pipe Locator (CL10) arms electricians, contractors, remodelers, homeowners and others with information that allows them to identify and trace electrical cables and metallic, water, gas or drain pipes without ripping walls apart or trying to track down and analyze construction drawings, saving time and money. It quickly pinpoints the location of electrical cables and metallic water, gas or drain pipes by revealing infrastructure up to 6.6 ft. (2m) behind walls, above ceilings or under floors. It also allows users to easily trace circuits, identify a circuit’s breaker, detect open- and short-circuits, find outlets covered by plaster and safely break through walls. The CL10 transmitter and receiver communicate on any of eight channels and display readings on a big, bright graphic LCD. Both units also include an integral flashlight for illuminating dark areas. Used with a metal rod, the system also can locate blockages and constrictions in plastic pipes.
