Is there a line tone generator that can be used on a CHARGED line?

I'm looking for a line toner (line tracer) that can be used on electrical lines, not just phone lines.

    You could probably get one at an electrical supply store or at LOWES, ect. I have used a telco generator and probe for years. If it,s a dead circuit, connect across black and white of the wire to be traced. If it,s a hot circuit, connect between hot and ground. Telco generators withstand ringing voltages which range from 90-130v 20HZ AC.

    Source(s): 33 yrs telco, electrical work on side.

    Lowes has a Garder-Bender model GET-1200 for $32 and change.
