Portable Primary Cable Fault Locator

More Information

Overview

HAEFELY HIPOTRONICS' X-WAVE is the most advanced, safe, and powerful cable fault locating tool on the market for sectionalizing your URD loop feed installations. Used together with the Hipotronics   H-Flash, it makes short work of URD Sectionalizing of cable faults.HAEFELY HIPOTRONICS' X-WAVE is a fully self contained, battery operated and weatherproof unit. The controller is microprocessor-based with large weather tight push buttons and optical encoder knob with user-friendly sequencing for ease of operation. The integrated emergency stop button, isolated return, and unique mechanical design ensures user safety.The Hipotronics X-WAVE was specifically designed to shorten restoration time and increase productivity for today s utilities, resulting in an improved SAIDI index.

  • Accessible memory locations for internal trace storage
  • Automatic identification of key cable parameters (cable length and distance to fault)
  • Automatic setup of sampling rate, gain and pulse width
  • Intuitive, step-by-step Instructions ensures ease of operation
  • Large LCD display designed with a trans-reflective film for use in direct sunlight
  • Large, easy-to-use push buttons
  • Proof Tester 500V to 10kV DC variable output
  • Quick Location Faults

  • Safety Isolated: return and all front panel parts securely grounded for safe operation of the unit
  • Multi-Purpose Device: has ability to pre-locate, locate and diagnose cable faults
  • Easy to Use: device walks user through test procedure, in 5 easy steps you've located the fault
  • Serial Port: allows for waveform download and evaluation of test results
  • Reduce Outage Time: by quickly locating cable faults you reduce outage time and get power back to your customers sooner
  • Reduce Cable Damage: using a TDR reduces thumping and therefore damage to the cable

General

Application
