Thumping using a cable fault locator is a popular method of finding defects on cables that are buried underground. This test applies a short high voltage pulse and if a cable has a defect like an open insulation or broken cable, an arc will form and produce an audible thump on the ground. This cable fault locator can help you quickly pinpoint defects, therefore saving you time and effort.
