Southern Africa Fault Location produces Test Equipment for the Power Cable Fault Location industry.
We are committed to excellence and promote only the highest standards of safety and quality.
POWER CABLE FAULT LOCATION EQUIPMENT
We produce a range of High Voltage Proof Test Instruments and various safety devices for the Cable Test Industry.
Surge Generators are produced in a range from 5kV to 32kV with discharge energy ranging from 500 Joules to 2000 Joules. Combination Systems are available that enables the user to Pre-Locate high resistance faults.
GROUND MICROPHONE SYSTEMS
Ground Microphone Systems are available in a basic analogue and a high end digital range. In the higher end systems selectable filters and time of flight measurements are standard features.
FAULT PRE-LOCATION SCOPES
Fault Pre-Location scopes are used to pre determine the distance to a fault. It analyses the impedance of the cable using TDR technology. To pre-locate high resistance fault, the unit is connected to the HT pulse, which temporarily lowers the fault resistance.
CABLE SHEATH FAULT LOCATION
Sheath Fault Locators are used to determine the integrity of cable sheaths. The “Pool of Potential” method is used to “Pin-Point” where tiny holes are present in the cable sheath.
PROOF AND DIAGNOSTICS TEST EQUIPMENT
We produce various different models of Electrical Proof Test Equipment. AC, DC and VLF Systems are available for any voltage up to 200KV.
Alternating Current Proof Testers are used to test busbars, switchgear, transformers and a large array of different objects for electrical integrity.
Direct Current Proof Testers are used to test certain cable types, for example, Paper Insulated Lead Cables. It is generally used where large capacitive loads are to be tested.
