Detection of cable faults
Easy cable fault location in underground low voltage cable network
• Detection of cable faults while maintaining the power supply for consumers
• Reduction of network downtime through avoidance of false excavations
• Portable equipment with short-term payback
• Reliable identification of the gases produced by burning cables
Works in perfect harmony with our
Vacuum Probe System (VSS15)
• Vacuum suction allows faster localisation
• Detection of the slightest traces of gas, even in difficult environmental conditions
• Can be used even in extremely damp earth with reliable protection from water
Cable faults in the electricity network can often be difficult to locate.
With our Cable HUNTER, however, you can locate cable faults in the
low-voltage network independently and immediately after the fault is
reported, without any help from external cable measurement companies.
The Cable HUNTER operates using two sensors that react to the gases
emitted by burnt cable insulation material. When used in combination
with the Vacuum Probe System 15 (VSS 15), it allows you to locate
the fault quickly and easily.
The use of two sensors allows the system to differentiate between cable
faults and natural gas or biogas.
The loads need not be disconnected.

Quick and reliable sensor display
The quantity of combustion gas produced by most cable faults is extremely small. To achieve successful results, therefore, it is essential that even the smallest traces of gas can be sucked in and that the sensors are
extremely sensitive. Our two-sensor strategy also makes it possible to distinguish between the cable fault
combustion gases and any biogas or natural gas that may be present.
The presence of combustion gases is indicated only if both sensors react simultaneously. The test gas provided can be used to check that the sensors function correctly.
After a quick briefing and with very little effort, you will be equipped to react immediately to a fault report
using the Cable HUNTER. The effort required is minimal since the loads can remain connected to the network. This means that downtime in the network can be reduced. Since the combustion gases dissipate with
time, it is advisable to locate the damage within two to three days.
