HD Electric 3ID 3-phase cable identifier
By Anthony Capkun
December 1, 2014 – HD Electric’s 3ID 3-phase cable identifier identifies the correct phases on long lengths (up to 7 miles) of de-energized and discharged overhead and underground cables.
It includes a sender and receiver that are designed to be hand-held with or without gloves. LEDs on both units indicate when the tool is connected to the same phases on each end of a cable, or any shorted phases. The compact 3ID is suitable for both overhead or underground systems, and features large copper alligator clips with heavy-duty boots, and a Low Battery indicator.
