HotWire Fox Features: Generates warble or pulsed tracing tones with user selectable pitch, audible continuity test with 120/220 VAC line cross protection, truetrace positively identifies wires (when usable), also generates af tracing tones for use with inductive probes (like the hound 3), manetic back, battery test LED, battery powered or AC line powered, carrying case included, uses common 9v battery, one year warranty. HotWire Hound Features: FET and IC front end, trace wires up to 1000′ in length, adjustable sensitivity, powerful loudspeaker, led signal strength indicator, noise filter, white led headlights, auto-muting earphone jack, carrying case included, uses common 9V battery, one year warranty. The Triplett HotWire is a wire tracer for 120VAC and 220VAC circuits. It consists of the HotWire Fox Transmitter and the HotWire Hound Receiver. The HotWire Fox applies a Radio Frequency (RF) tracing signal to the wire to be traced, and this RF signal propagates down the wire radiating the signal along the length of the wire. The HotWire Hound senses the location and strength of this RF signal, and in doing so, identifies the path of the wire to the user. The HotWire can also trace other common wires, whether powered or unpowered. For example, it can trace telephone and cable TV wires, LAN cables, security system wires, and many others. The HotWire Fox, in addition to generating RF signals, also generates Audio Frequency (AF) signals which can be sensed with the Triplett Hound, Hound 2, Hound 3, or Hound Jr. In some cases, tracing a wire using the AF signal is advantageous.
