    Trace wires and cables with the LKZ-720 cable locator

    The Sonel LKZ-720 cable and wire locator is a device consisting of the LKN-720 transmitter and the LKO-720 receiver. This instrument is dedicated to finding cables and other underground infrastructures. The LKZ-720 allows the location of both metallic objects (cables) and non-conductive objects (PVC pipes, concrete, etc.). The locator is mainly dedicated to use in the energy and installation industry, among others.

    Locate wires and cables with the LKZ-720 Wire Tracer

    Main features

    • detection of wires and cables (live or not)
    • tracing underground cables
    • tracing conductive water and heating pipelines
    • flow and accurate locating the object
    • phase detection mode
    • operation in wide range of rated voltage, up to 500 V RMS
    • five modes of wire tracer operation - voltage, current, current-voltage, power and clamp
    • additional accessories enable precise localization - such as contact or non-contact probes and measurement clamp

    ...and much more

    • the function 3D in the receiver - detecting the direction of current
    • receiver operation with four transmitters at the same time to locate interruptions or distinguish wires
    • a LED bright torch • headphone socket in receiver
    • screens backlight for work in dark
    • transmission battery status and settings of the transmitter to the receiver
    • measurement of voltage at the object to 500 V RMS
    • three levels of transmitter amplification
    • automatic or manual selection of transmitter operation modes
    • software upgrade via USB


    Detection and tracing cables in ceilings, walls and floors

    In response to the needs of customers, the LKO-720 has a specially designed 3D antenna that raises the precision of the wire tracing. Determine direction of wires in concrete up to 5 cm will not be a problem now.

    Locating power points and switches in buildings

    pulse generated by a LKN-720 transmitter with a specific frequency allows to locate and identify sockets and switches in energized and de-energized circuits.

    Identification of fuses on the distribution board

    Thanks to the precise sensor in LKO-720 and additional contact and non-contact probes, identify of breakers and fuses now will be easily and time-saving.

    Possibility to tracing in no access conductors

    LKO-720 with C-8 clamp used in the current mode or in other mode forcing current, allows to uniquely identify wire or cable with a forced current signal. Non-contact detection of live cables LKO-720 allows to precisely detect energized wires in air and concrete without additional probes.

    Additional areas of use

    • detection of breaks in cables and wires
    • locating short circuits between leads
    • tracing shielded cables
    • tracing cables in metal ducts
    • tracing underground cables
    • tracing conductive water and heating pipelines
