Cable Fault Location

Cable faults are damage to cables which effect the resistance and insulation properties of a cable or conductor.

Identifying and pinpointing a cable fault can result in a huge saving to the cables owner or operator. Locating the exact location of a cable fault allows for the damaged portion only to be safely excavated and repaired. Without the ability to locate and fix damaged portions of cables the owner or operator of a cable will be subject to the high expense of trenching and installing an entirely new cable. The cost of the replacement cable alone is often far greater than the cost to locate a fault and have it repaired. This is not to mention loss in revenue or productivity from a lack of a reliable electricity source.
