Lee Vaughan Cable Identifier MKIV

The Lee Vaughan Cable Identifier MKIV  is designed to help identify one cable made dead, from a bunch of other live cables.  The principal of operation is to attach the transmitter at one end of the dead cable, and at the remote end the cores on which the transmitter has been connected are shorted together.  At any point along the cable the  transmitted signal can be picked up by the receiver, and the cable identified.



  • Visual & audible identification from the rise and fall of induced signal due to the ‘lay’ of the cable cores.
  • Conveniently housed in fitted carry case
  • Transmitter & receiver each powered by readily available 4 x AA size cells.
  • Suitable for cable lengths up to 5kms depending on cable type.
