Underground Cable Fault Tester

HDE Underground Tester JoomlaHD Electric Co., a Textron Inc. company, now offers its new Underground Cable Fault Tester, the UCT-8, a lightweight one-piece tool that is used to test underground, de-energized, primary-shielded voltage cables for faults.

Test results for underground DC leakage are clearly displayed as an analog bar graph along with an indication of a good or faulted cable. A self-contained, 8-kV high-voltage source powers the tester using a 9-V lithium battery, making the UCT-8 a compact, single hot-stick operation tool for testing cable. There also is an integrated safety circuitry that detects cables that have not been properly de-energized, alerts the user of the problem and shuts down the test to prevent system damage. An automatic shutoff feature helps the battery to last longer.
