Megger PIL 8 Phasenlux - Phase Identification - Earthed / Short-circuited MV Cables
Megger Seba PIL 8 has been designed for phase identification in earthed and short-circuited medium voltage cables.
The phase identification instrument PIL 8 meets these requirements: it eliminates the need to disconnect the short-circuiting and earthing circuit. After installing the three pairs of clamps, the doors of the chamber can be closed. The Phasenlux PIL 8 works with three pairs of transceiver clamps: one of each is connected to the short-circuited phases without any connection leads (power supply is not required!). At the other end of the cable (cutting point, other substation, etc.) an audio frequency current is fed into the cable by means of a battery operated audio frequency generator. This audio frequency current generates a voltage in the transceiver clamps which is recorded and stored in a capacitor. There is a small audio frequency generator inside the transceiver clamps that, as soon as a DC voltage is connected, transmits a coded signal to the receiver indicating the designated phase connected to each pair of clamps. Now, the audio frequency generator at the cutting point of the cable is used as a receiver which displays the transceiver clamps’ signal.
