Ultimate all-in-one fault locating system 32kV

The P32x is a portable all-in-one solution for troubleshooting, pre-locating
and pinpointing of cable faults in various networks. The offered alternative
setups meet specific user requirements and provide capabilities normally
found only in more expensive cable test vans. Integrated full scale TDR
capability in combination with the high voltage arc reflection mode prelocates
low faults with utmost precision.
The HV options include HV testing and breakdown locating up to 80kV or
monitored HV fault conversion with 25A @ 15kV. The LV options include
powerful LV surging or a 250W multi-frequency audio frequency transmitter.
All versions with less than 40kV output are switched automatically internally.
The extensive multi-dimensional safety system  3D complements
this powerful portable system.


  • Comprehensive fault locating in underground LV, MV and HV cable networks;
  • Covering full cycle from trouble shooting to isolating and precise fault pinpointing;
  • Central control unit with menu guided operation following the working algorithm of cable fault locating;
  • Separation of system control circuit from front-end data display based on Windows®;
  • Inductive Arc Reflection Tech (ARTi) pre-location featuring no loss HV impulse voltage & energy conversion to fault including arc extension;
  • Total low power consumption;
  • Possibility to upgrade to fully equipped cable test van.
