CableData Collector Finds Defects in Live cables
EA Technology’s CableData Collector measures radio frequency currents to assess the condition of live distribution voltage cables. The CableData Collector works by testing for Partial Discharge (PD) activity: small discharges, which result in damage to the cable, and if left unattended will lead to insulation failure. The instrument quickly detects PD activity in live cables by measuring radio frequency currents. It works with most types of single and three phase insulated cables at distribution voltages, up to several miles/kilometres in length.
