Ultimate all-in-one fault locating system 16kV

The P16i is the ultimate all-in-one solution for troubleshooting, pre-locating and pinpointing of cable faults in complex cable networks up to 15kV. Menu guided computerized operation allows to detect and precisely locate various faults for even inexperienced users. Featuring a large color 10,4” screen, the P16i can display measurement curves, test results and message codes simultaneously. Integrated full scale TDR capability in combination with the high voltage arc reflection

mode (ARTi) will isolate and pre-locate low as well as high resistance faults with utmost precision. As a result precise pinpointing will take much less time. The fast HV surge pulse cycles of 3 sec. with up to 2000 Joule energy support the most demanding locating jobs while the multi-dimensional safety system ensures maximum safety for instrument and operator. The optional pin-pointer Kamphone and Locator S are used for flash-over faults or cable sheath faults.
