Megger digiPHONE+2 for Acoustic / Electromagnetic Fault Pin-Pointing
Megger digiPHONE+ Silence During Fault Location
Used in conjunction with a Surge Generator or Sheath Fault Locator pulsed energy source to find the exact location of a fault.
This instrument sets the standard, by integrating audio and electromagnetic functionality in to one simple to understand, colour display. Combining two new technologies for efficient noise suppression, it offers exceptional acoustic performance which lets pass only the fault noise. This means it is possible to lower the surge energy and to find faults in noisy environments. The operator’s hearing is protected by auto proximity mute, turning off the head set as a hand approaches the sensor handle and turning it on again once mechanical oscillations have ceased, and limiting the earphone output to 84 db(A). Cable tracing is simplified using the left right indicator keeping the sensor over the cable while the compass indicates the direction to the fault and the digital readout displays the distance to the fault.

Megger digiPHONE+2 Improved Technologies:
BNR - Background Noise Reduction
NEW, intelligent BNR technology with filtering and background noise suppression produces an undisturbed acoustic experience, only sending the fault sound to your ears.
APM - Automatic Proximity Mute
When the sensor handle is approached, the sound stops, before the hand touches the handle – no cracking, no banging. After the sensor has been put down again, a short delay ensures that the digiPHONE+2 sensor is standing stable and possible mechanical oscillations have ceased, before the headset is activated.
No disturbing noise anymore. You hear only the fault, nothing else! Your ears will love it!
Active noise cancelling ability, ambient noise can be kept to a minimum. However, these battery-powered headphones also have a disadvantage: if the battery runs out, you can‘t continue working! The digiPHONE+2 has solved this problem. If the battery runs out, just connect the headphones to the control unit with a cable and you can keep working.
Cable Compass and Fault arrow
 The cable compass for visualisation of the route keeps the user safely on the cable. The compass (green line) not only indicates whether you are left or right of the cable, but also in which angle the cable runs to the sensor.
 The fault arrow indicates in which direction the fault is present. The fault distance can optionally be defined in milliseconds, meters or feet.
