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.

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.Read more ›
It flashes and beeps faster when in closer proximity to AC voltage, or sensing a higher voltage for a given sensitivity adjustment. The beep feature came in handy when attempting to turn off an unlabeled circuit. I placed the unit next to the live wire, so it would begin beeping. I then went to the panel and turned off breakers one-at-a-time, listening for beeping as I went; made this one-man job easier.
I agree with the other reviewer that this device can be very helpful when working on "knob & tube" wiring.
Seems durable, since I have dropped the unit several times and the worst that has happened, so far, is the battery cover has popped off; nothing has broken.
It is subtantially 'fatter' that other pen-style voltage detectors, so it takes up more room in your shirt pocket. However, at times, I have hung it on the outside of my pocket and this seems to work.
The battery is a 12V A23, which is a bit out of the ordinary, but I am still on the first one, and it seems to be going strong.
I would recommend the Triplett 9601 Sniff-It 2 to anyone shopping for a non-contact voltage detector.
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.

a pretty good compromise considering the cost and all. it has an irritating habit of being a bit ambiguous when one sweeps over the circuit breakers. Read morePublished 14 days ago by JR
This worked great. Some reviewers complained about it, but I followed directions to first do an initial scan and then repeat to locate the breaker.Published 15 days ago by G Bowman

Not worthy of the Triplett name. Results are unreliable and sometimes unrepeatable. Biggest problem: you have to remove the battery or it will turn on in your tool box.Published 1 month ago by Walt
