Very often at, construction works, such as drilling of walls, it is required not to damage electric wiring. Especially sharply this question rises when the cable hidden in a wall is under tension. But not everyone at hand has a detector that can solve this situation. In this post I will show my solution to this problem.
Today, in many apartments and private homes have hidden wiring. That certainly causes some inconvenience with any attempt to drill a hole, drive a nail or spend whatever it job may fail. Certainly, the knowledge of the location of the wiring harness and having a plan is much safer. After all the cabling can be carried out as in a wall or on the ceiling and on the floor.
In the search for and construction of the cable specialists can provide substantial assistance from electronic laboratories. Also they will be able to conduct measurements of insulation resistance, thus determine how worn out wiring and does it need to be replaced. In the case of independent search hidden electrical wiring you can use digital detector. Today in the markets there are a lot of similar products. You can stay at one of them, for example, on a digital detector PDO 6, producer of the German firm BOSCH.
This device is designed to detect metals, electric cables under tension, and it will help hold the voltage. Its operation will not cause any difficulties. The power is the usual battery of similar “Crone”. First you need to simply turn on the detector and wait for the moment when the screen displays and a check box. Then the appliance is ready for use. Attention should also be drawn to the color marking ring. At the start of the work it will be green. Surface survey process will be as follows. Install the detector on the surface and move the appliance. If the range is a metal object, the marking ring immediately turns red and the appliance will emit a beep. However, If the action field is cables under tension, then the device marking ring not only becomes red and starts flashing together with a sound signal. The objects found are easily observed through the marking ring. The device is limited to coverage when detecting ferrous metals 60 mm, copper cables energized 30 mm. Once you have located flush you can safely proceed with the electrical installations. An example of the detector can be seen in the following video.
