Why use the FireCraft® trACer™?
Because it makes the difference in a life or death circumstance and it only takes a few seconds. Use the FireCraft® trACer® non-contact AC voltage detector easily and from a safe distance to determine if a downed power line is charged or if a circuit in a structure is live.
In most cases, a downed power line is rendered "safe" by the safeguards built into every power company's distribution system, usually in less than 30 seconds. However, every downed line and every structure's wiring must be considered live - ALWAYS.
Why? If there is a backup generator on the line and it is not wired properly, the "downline" wire may be hot. Or let's say you pull the meter on a house. That house can still be "hot" if there is a standby generator or solar panels on the roof feeding those circuits.
Even if you have a cut power line touching the ground, don't assume that it triggered the breaker. If the ground is dry sand, for instance, it will not cause the circuit to trip as there is not enough moisture to transmit the current to ground.
