Why the Circuit Breaker Finder?

The IDEAL 61-534 Digital Circuit Breaker Finder provides three testers in one device. The receiver identifies breakers by detecting a signal applied to the branch circuit by the transmitter, and additionally incorporates a non-contact voltage sensing function. The transmitter also works as a GFCI receptacle tester, allowing you to verify AC is present in an outlet and to detect nearly all common improper wiring conditions. So you get the functionality of a circuit breaker finder, a non-contact voltage tester, and a GFCI receptacle tester in one versatile tool.

Problem

Locating breakers is often a two person job, one turning off breakers, the other waiting to see when a specific circuit is de-energized. It is frequently done by trial and error, or even by dangerously grounding or shorting a wire to trip a breaker.

When locating breakers becomes needlessly time consuming and shortcuts are taken, nobody wins. It was with this challenge in mind that IDEAL developed the Digital Circuit Breaker Finder.

Solution

The patented 61-534 Digital Circuit Breaker Finder from IDEAL makes locating breakers in AC circuits quick and easy. No need to interrupt the supply – simply plug the transmitter into an outlet, then two quick passes of the receiver over the breakers will reveal the associated breaker with clear audible and visual indicators. The 61-534 Digital Circuit Breaker Finder enables safer and more reliable working by taking the guesswork out of circuit identification.
