Datasheet

Hipotronics CF Series test systems for fault locating of primary cables consist of a dc proof tester, a burner and a capacitive discharge fault locator (thumper). These self-contained, portable units are rugged, reliable and compact making them ideal for field use. This unit can be used with a high voltage coupler (4100 Series) and a time domain reflectometer (TDR) to quickly provide a specific distance to the fault in feet or meters. This combination of equipment can greatly reduce the amount of high voltage (number of thumps) the cable resulting in reduced damage or degradation to the cable under test.
