Syscompact 4000 cable fault location system

The compact cable fault location system, Syscompact 4000, is used for the pre-location and pin-pointing of faults on low- and medium-voltage cables.
Thanks to the novel operational concept and the integrated location methods, cable faults can be located more rapidly and easily with Syscompact 4000. The high-performance industrial PC and improved measurement parameters allow for a precise cable fault location in all cable types.
The system can be equipped with different surge voltage generators SSG 1100, SSG 1500* or SSG 2100*. The surge voltage generators have an automatic surge mode, thereby also allowing the Syscompact 4000 to be used for acoustic pin-pointing.
Thanks to its compact design, the Syscompact 4000 is easy to transport and is also suitable for installation in any small van with a payload of 300 to 500 kg.
