HV Diagnostics EZ-Cable ID Now Part of Protec’s Rental Inventory

HV Diagnostics EZ-Cable ID Test InstrumentThe HV Diagnostics EZ-Cable ID Test Instrument allows electrical testing personnel to accurately and effectively identify either one or three cables or cores anywhere along the length of the cable in one identification process. This can be done on both single phase and three phase networks. In addition to identifying the correct cable and phase, the resultant current and frequency in a cable can also be measured by the instrument.

The test set consists of 3 main items: A receive (Rx), transmitter (Tx), and inductive clamp/s, all housed in a rugged, injection molded carrying case. The instrument is extremely easy to use and can be powered by either the internal battery, AC mains or from an auxiliary 12V DC supply. The receiver has a backlit LCD display, is battery operated, housed in a rugged, rubber holster and has a flexible pickup coil to easily wrap around cables.

Correct identification of a cable is often required for many types of applications. These include the “cutting in” of a new transformer or switch into an existing cable, correct identification of cables in a trench, manhole, or cable tray, before spiking/cutting- the list goes on. The EZ-Cable ID unit offers enhanced identification of energized cables, even those carrying high load currents that often cause other ID units on the market to malfunction.
