I deal with a lot of controls, and most of the systems we service are three phase. I feel like a wire tracer would save me a few headaches at times. What are some good wire tracers out there. Does anyone use one, have one, or plan on getting one? I have been looking at the fluke pro 3000 tone and probe kit. Any reviews? Any recommendations? Thanks guys.2nd generation commercial technician

I have one that i bought from Lowes.... It works. Ideal brand
I rarely use it but its nice when I need it.
Ohm your wires out when you find them though. Just to be sure..Let go of my cracker jacks, If you dont Im going to have to beat you....... now then hand my captain crunch back over to me this instant.....or else !!!

How does a wire tracer work compared to just ohming the wires out with my dmm. I have never seen one. I usually just put my meter on continuity am I doing it all wrong. Still pretty green in the field

I have a Fluke pro3000. I don't use it often, but when I do it saves a lot of time.
