Megger Fault Sniffer 2 Locate Cable Faults In Underground LV Networks

Megger Fault Sniffer 2 can quickly locate cable faults in underground low voltage networks.

Whenever there‘s a power outage within a supply line it‘s a technician job to resolve the problem as quickly as possible. Up to now the technician needed to hire a contractor along with their cable test van to visit the site and locate the fault. That meant cutting off power to each consumer in the affected area, one by one. That is a difficult and time consuming process! And time is money - the longer the power outage the higher the contractual penalty which the power provider must pay to the national utilities agency.

With the Megger Fault Sniffer 2 the technician can easily locate the fault on his own.


How Does The Megger Fault Sniffer 2 Work?

A short circuit causes localised burning of cable insulation releasing gases which are collected by the system‘s vacuum system. This way even the smallest gas levels can be detected.

Using its dual sensor technology Fault Sniffer 2 can distinguish these combustion gases from bio gases and other naturally occurring gases, therefore avoiding false readings. This innovative solution for locating cable faults eliminates the need to cut off power supply to each consumer in the affected area.

The Megger Fault Sniffer 2 makes the technician‘s work much quicker and easier - Locate cable faults reliably and accurately, and resolve the situation quickly!  For power providers this will mean significant cost savings, and many satisfied customers!
