The Fault Wizard, A Cable Fault Locator You Can Rely On

  • Uncategorized

When troubleshooting underground cables, it would be nice to have a tool that gives a complete testing system so that you do not have to bring individual tools onsite. This makes your job faster and more convenient. One diagnostic tool you might be interested in is the Fault Wizard from Innovative Utility. 


The 
Fault Wizard works as a arc reflection cable fault locator and a DC high potential tester. It has a cycle thumper mode that puts out a 350 Joule pulse every 6 seconds. This mode allows you to thump cable defects and pinpoint the exact location as far as 10,000 feet. Its DC hipot mode allows you to proof burn the nearby insulation before reenergizing the cable for operation. It is portable and battery operated which can last up to 1 hour of continuous operation. This makes it a great tool for field and industrial underground cable testing.

You can check out the Fault Wizard and try it by renting from Protec Equipment Resources. We offer a wide range of equipment for testing and instrumentation. You can call one of our representatives at 1-866-352-5550 to learn more about the services we offer.
