The Aqua-Tronics S.D.A.D Makes Underground Cable Troubleshooting Easier

  • Uncategorized

Finding faults in buried cables can be difficult especially if you do not have the right cable testing equipment. Unearthing long cable installations is not only time-consuming but also leads to high repair costs. Consider getting a directional acoustic fault locator to speed up repair time and save you money on repair expenses.


Fault detection in underground cable installations can be made easier using the Aqua-Tronics Super Directional Acoustic Detector. This 
cable fault locator uses two directional microphone probes to determine which direction should the operator go. A thumper is used to send a ballistic impulse to the ground and the S.D.A.D. compares the received waves from its microphones. If a cable fault is near one of the probes, the received signal will be stronger on that probe compared to the other one. This tool can help save you time in underground cable troubleshooting and is a great addition to your existing cable test equipment.
