Product Description

The Triplett 9650 portable circuit breaker locator for finding and identifying breaker box switches from electrical outlets has an inductive tracer with audio and visual signals, a tone generator that sends electrical signals, and automatic shutoff. The tracer beeps and flashes a red light for clear indication of magnetic fields. The tone generator sends an electrical signal to guide the tracer to breaker box switches. The meter shuts off automatically after 10 minutes of nonuse to help extend battery life. The tracer and tone generator are each cased in acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) plastic for strength and light weight. The kit has a lifetime warranty. It is often used to identify breaker switches for labeling in home, commercial and industrial environments.

The tone generator has two prongs that connect to a standard wall plug. Tone generator dimensions are 6 x 1.75 x .75 inches (H x W x D), and it weighs 2 oz. Tracer dimensions are 6 x 1.75 x 1.5 inches (H x W x D), and it weighs 3.6 oz. (H is height, the vertical distance from lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.) The tracer operates on a 9V battery (not included).

Wire tracers are used to locate wires in walls or underground locations. They identify circuit breakers and short or open circuits, which break electrical connections and prevent optimal electrical flow. Wire tracers are commonly used by home remodelers, and in the telephone, electrical, and video industries.

Triplett manufactures test equipment for electricians, home security installers, and telecommunications technicians. The company, founded in 1904, is headquartered in Manchester, NH.

Based on my experience with this product, I would speculate that any review claiming that the circuit breaker locator randomly beeps and doesn't properly indicate the correct circuit breaker is from someone who didn't read and follow the product's simple instructions. The instructions are included in a short instruction sheet, but are also printed on a nice indelible sticker on the receiver itself. Once you use the product a time or two, and think about what it's doing, you really don't need the instructions, though, in my opinion.

The instructions say:
"At the breaker box or fuse box, hold the RECEIVER PERPENDICULAR to the breakers. With the power on, scan the rows of breakers from top to bottom (see Figure 3). During this scan, the RECEIVER may beep and flash at several breakers. This is a normal part of the identification process. When you have completed one scan of all the breakers, go back to the first breaker and, WITHOUT TOUCHING THE POWER BUTTON, SCAN THEM ALL A SECOND TIME. When the receiver beeps and the arrow flashes during the second scan, you have correctly identified the circuit."

When you turn on the receiver, it begins continuously sniffing out a signal from the transmitter, and gauging the signal strength it is receiving from the transmitter. Anytime it receives a signal of equal strength or stronger than any signal it has received since it was powered on, it beeps and flashes the arrow, and memorizes this new strongest signal strength. The initial scan over the circuit breakers is essentially calibrating the receiver, so that it then knows the strongest received signal strength.

This breaker tester is perfect for the job. And, the price can't be beat. Probably something you'll use one time to identify the switches in the box and, once that's done, the tester will go into your tool chest. It does exactly what it says it will do. One recommendation, run it a few times on the same circuit to be sure of the reading. I think that interference from someone using a plug in another room at exactly the time you test might throw it off. Better yet - chase everyone out of the house while you're doing this.

After reading some lousy reviews for similar products, I decided to take a chance on this manufacturer and I was not disappointed. It works well IF you follow the directions. Will accurately narrow the circuit down to two adjacent circuits. MUCH better than flipping them all off and on to find "the one." I deducted one star because it seems a little flimsy and lightweight, but I am not using this professionally so I can live with that. Also, as another reviewer noted, it is very easy to accidentally turn it on so you really can't leave the battery installed or it will run down. I am generally happy with this unit for my purposes.

Not to expensive in price and gets the job done. I got really tired running up and down stairs all the time trying to find the right breaker. I know some of my customers will be disappointed in not having their breaker boxes labeled properly. Little hard to trace behind walls but that is not what I got it for.
One thing to watch out for is depressing the button on the side by other tools in the bag, leave the battery out unless you want to chage batteries often.

Several people complained about how this works. I don't have any problem if I follow the directions. Plug the transmitter into the outlet. Scan the entire panel box one time, then scan it again to indicate the appropriate breaker. I have only used it a couple times, but it worked perfectly in each instance.

I'm so tired of running up and down the stairs to turn breakers off and on when I have to do some electrical work to do. This makes it so much easier (especially now that I've charted all of the circuits in the house with this tool).

I could not get a lock signal with this device, unlike other tone generators I have experience using. Also the side on button was over sensitive, activating itself against other tools inside my tool carrier. It would need it's own case, if kept in use.
