C.A 6681 LOCAT-N Locate hidden cables

A Single Instrument for Locating, All Your Metal Conductors

Detection and location of faults in electrical cables, telecommunication cables and pipes. For your housing maintenance, renovation and improvement work, the LOCAT-N C.A 6881 detects electrical power cables and telecommunication cables, metal pipes and even anomalies on your lines.

Comprising a C.A 6881E transmitter and a C.A 6881R receiver, the LOCAT-N C.A 6681 is simple to use on both current-carrying and non-current-carrying mains circuits. Its digital technology overcomes interference and disturbance signals to provide precise location details. The receiver displays the value of the signal measured, which is also shown on the bar chart or in the form of acoustic signals whose amplitudes vary in proportion to the signal distance.

This makes it very simple to follow electrical cables through walls or detect buried pipes in gardens.

To guide you and simplify your work, the receiver can quickly identify the circuit-breaker or fuses corresponding to the socket to which the transmitter is connected. It can be used to detect short-circuits or cuts on existing installations.

For example, it is possible to detect faults in under-floor heating pipes. These ergonomic instruments are lightweight and delivered complete with practical accessories for direct measurements on screw-in or bayonet lamp sockets or on mains power sockets.

Main applications:


  • Identify a fuse, circuit-breaker, etc.
  • Track a cable in a wall
  • Determine the location of a cut in the circuit
  • Locate short-circuits
  • Locate cable ducts in a house
  • Detect buried conductors


  • Locate pipes (copper, steel)
  • Track plastic pipes


  • Cable location
  • Identification of a pair in a strand
  • Dedicated accessories for measurements on lighting sockets or  directly on 2P+E power sockets are also delivered as standard. This means the product is ready to use.
