Brand:  PetSafe
Description: 

RFA-450 Inground Dog Fence Wire Break Detector used for finding wire breaks in your underground dog fence

You can purchase a wire break locator from us or use the method listed below. The wire break locator is not returnable unless the wire break locator is defective. All returned wire break detectors will be tested for proper operation. Defective wire break detectors will be replaced at no additional charge.
 
The Wire Break Locator will help you troubleshoot your system if there is a wire break indication on the fence transmitter or if the receiver collar is not functioning on the containment system but works during the short loop test. This new and improved system replaces RFA-50. Temporarily replace your transmitter then trace your fence configuration. Audible tones help discover each side of a broken wire. Locates complete breaks only; partial breaks will not be detected by the system.

  • Wire break location transmitter with 12-Volt AC adapter
  • Receiver with expandable handle and 2 AAA batteries
  • 50 feet of Boundary Wire
  • 2 grounding stakes
  • 4 gel-filled capsules
  • 4 wire nuts
  • 2 cable ties
  • not compatible with the with SDF-100A 

Alternative Method for finding wire breaks in your underground dog fence

  1. Connect both ends of your twisted boundary wire to the first terminal on your transmitter.
  2. Measure and cut a new piece of boundary wire that is 1/2 the length of your boundary loop.
  3. Connect the new wire to the second terminal on the transmitter.
  4. Locate the half- way point along your boundary loop.
  5. Cut your boundary loop at the half-way point.
  6. Connect the free end of your new piece of wire to either side of your boundary loop at the half way point.
  7. Turn the system on and check the range of this smaller loop with the receiver collar.
  8. If there is no improvement in the performance of your system, you may assume that there is a break in this portion of your boundary. Because there is a small chance you have more than one break in your loop, you should also try the same procedure for the other side of your loop.
  9. Once you determine a section of your boundary loop has a break in it, find the middle of that section and cut the wire. Be sure to re-splice the first cut that you made and make it waterproof by caulking with silicone.
  10. Connect the new wire to your boundary loop at the point at which you made the cut in STEP 9.
  11. Turn the system on and check the range of this smaller loop with the receiver collar.
  12. Repeat STEPS 8 - 11 until you find the damaged section of wire.
  13. Replace damaged wire with new wire. Remember that all wire in your boundary loop must be the exact same size and type.
