New York, NY—The growing line of electrical instruments from General Tools & Instruments is already garnering attention and recognition. The company’s new Cable & Pipe Locator (CL10) is a 2013 EC&M Product of the Year award winner. Established in 2000 by Electrical Construction & Maintenance magazine, the EC&M Product of the Year competition honors excellence in new product development in the electrical industry. This year, a panel of 12 judges scored each entry based on innovation as well as the ability to save end-users time and enhance productivity, and determined General’s Cable & Pipe Locator (CL10) to be the winner in the Portable Test & Locate Equipment category. The Cable & Pipe Locator (CL10) arms electricians, contractors, remodelers, homeowners and others with information that allows them to identify and trace electrical cables and metallic, water, gas or drain pipes without ripping walls apart or trying to track down and analyze construction drawings, saving time and money. It quickly pinpoints the location of electrical cables and metallic water, gas or drain pipes by revealing infrastructure up to 6.6 ft. (2m) behind walls, above ceilings or under floors. It also allows users to easily trace circuits, identify a circuit’s breaker, detect open- and short-circuits, find outlets covered by plaster and safely break through walls. The CL10 transmitter and receiver communicate on any of eight channels and display readings on a big, bright graphic LCD. Both units also include an integral flashlight for illuminating dark areas. Used with a metal rod, the system also can locate blockages and constrictions in plastic pipes.
