Hire Test Equipment

Low / Medium Voltage Applications

Hire Megger's TDR2050; perfect for cable fault location in low voltage networks. Auto-setup helps new users start fault locating quickly and safely, and the auto-find function assists with interpretation of results and distance to fault.

Hire Baur's Shirla; perfect for cable fault location in low voltage networks. The Shirla sheath test and fault location device is used for cable and cable sheath testing, and for the pre-location and pin-pointing of cable sheath faults and cable faults due to earth contact.

Hire Megger's perfect combination for cable fault location in low / Medium voltage networks: EZ-Thump, plus the digiPHONE+. EZ-Thump is a highly portable cable fault locator; a digital solution for identifying, prelocating and pinpointing faults on different cable types. Use the DigiPHONE to hone in on the cable fault; based on prelocation results the exact position of the fault must be determined using a pinpointing device like Megger‘s magnetic-acoustic digiPHONE.

Low / Medium / High Voltage Applications

Hire Megger's SmartThump; perfect for Medium Voltage Applications An advanced underground cable fault locating system which requires less training than a traditional thumper-only system, while providing the big advantage of displaying the distance to fault.

Hire Megger's HVB10; perfect for High Voltage Applications. A highly accurate HV bridge designed to pre-locate cable and sheath faults, perform sheath testing and pinpoint sheath faults, especially on long high voltage cables.

Hire Megger's perfect combination for sheath fault location with a ground fault locator (DC voltage gradient method): MFM10, plus the ESG NT. Sheath faults can occur due to poor cable laying or damage during installation. A sheath fault may not be detected until the cable is already in operation, with the obvious and very real concern that these sheath faults can quickly become cable faults. It is therefore imperative to identify and address these faults as quickly as possible! The Megger ESG NT is used to pinpointing cable sheath faults with greater accuracy.

Hire B2 Electronic's HVA28TD; perfect for high voltage testing and diagnostics. Plus, testing and diagnostics of medium voltage cables, rotating machines and transformers can also be performed.

Hire B2 Electronic's HVA60; perfect for high voltage testing and diagnostics. Plus, determines the condition of medium voltage cables, performs VLF and DC testing, and sheath testing (with sheath fault location mode).

Hire B2 Electronic's HVA120; perfect for high voltage testing and diagnostics. Apart from its variable frequency VLF output, the operator can also select dual polarity DC and cable jacket or sheath testing output modes. It also features both electronic and mechanical discharging of devices under test.

Specific High Voltage Applications

Hire Metrohm Live Line Testers; perfect for measuring high voltages and performing phasing tests. Units available for high voltage systems and a wide range of accessories to facilitate their use on overhead lines, in switchgear and in substations.

Utility Locate Applications

Hire Radiodetection's RD8100 and Vivax Metrotech's vLoc3-Pro; perfect for utility location including underground cables and pipes. Locate cable, pipes, sondes and RF marker locators; engineered to deliver high precision for damage prevention when locating buried utilities

Low Resistance Testing Applications

Hire Megger's DLRO10 Unit or Bundle with 100M Extension Lead; perfect for accurate low resistance measurements. Hire the DLRO10 unit on it's own or take a look at the bundle complete with KC100 extension reel extending the application capabilities.  KC100 test leads are long enough for testing the continuity of lightning protection conductors in wind turbines.
