SSG 500 surge voltage generator

The compact SSG 500 surge voltage generator is used to generate surge and DC voltage and can be used for the pre-location and pin-pointing of cable faults in buried power cables, in particular low voltage cables.
The SSG 500 surge voltage generator is arranged in a 19'' housing. Maximum safety is achieved with the electrical safety control unit, the automatic discharge unit, the fully enclosed design and separate protective and operational earthing.
The device generates surge voltages of 4 / 8 / 16 kV or 3 / 6 / 12 kV. In surge mode, the charge of the HV capacitors can be discharged to the faulty cable manually or automatically, as required, at a rate of 10 or 20 surges/min. When the device is switched off, the HV output is automatically discharged
