Simple to use, this device enables you to identify live LV cables in total safety!


  • Clear identification of live Low Voltage cables
  • In order to make a live connection
  • Prior to a de-energized operation

Simple to use

  • The modulator can be connected to single-phase, 2-phase or 3-phase systems. It has to be connected downstream of the point of identification. It draws off a current with a specific signature which can only be detected on the section of LV cable between the source and the connection point
  • The most universal generator (modulator) connection for identification signal and phasing is possible on the customer’s network or in a connection box.
  • Didactic operating mode present on the modulator
  • The display on the detection module guides the user step by step
  • Secured identification: The device indicates that it has identified the cable through cross-checking of frequencies and signal patterns
  • Chasing Light on the detector display shows signal cycle timing


Safety of the operator and the installations guaranteed:

  • The certain identification of the cable avoids the risk of working on the wrong cable, in particular, a high-voltage cable
  • Possible to identify an LV cable prior to cable maintenance


  • Signal identification is secure due to the current tapping method and digital signature: no signal on the adjacent cables or on MV cables
  • The directional probe allows certain identification of the cable
  • Reliable connectors: double-insulated, sheathed conductors, in accordance with new standards
  • Fused IP2X connectors at the network lead connecting ends
  • Complete built-in self-test

Operates on all types of cables whatever the environment.

  • Overhead and underground cables
  • “Paper-lead” cables, “dry” cables, “double steel armouring” cables
  • Urban, suburban and rural areas
  • All Neutral systems

A robust, complete practical kit designed to last.

  • Heavy-duty sealed case
  • The modulator remains on the customer’s premises or in a distribution box and the detection set (detector and probe) is hand-carried to the job site
  • The detector charges using a standard USB-type mains or vehicle charger
