Because finding faults in underground cable is like finding a needle in a haystack, the cable fault locator plays an important role in locating those hard to find spots in cabling. Innovate Utility Products has manufactured an all in one fully featured cable fault location unit that is so portable it can be used out in the field with ease.
Called the Fault Wizard, this system performs arc reflection testing on cable systems as if by magic. By being able to hone in on the location of faults, it can ignore the distortion generated by transformer reflection and find faulty cabling fast. With a location distance of up to 10,000 feet, that is certainly no small feat – no pun intended. With a variable voltage feature, the unit can pulse at a lower rate to avoid cable damage, and with the on board headset, users can listen for faults as well. Even without special hearing devices, there is enough powerful juice in the Fault Wizard to be heard anywhere, above or below ground.
With three distinct operating modes of high voltage test arc reflection, thumping and DC hipot testing available, you are sure to have all the bases covered to locating faults without fail. Bonus software also supplies computer viewing to make reading and assessing results smooth.
