Digi-Bridge - Cable/Jacket Fault Locator & DC Hipot
The Digi-Bridge is a fully integrated, one piece, automatic, highly accurate, high voltage cable insulation and jacket/sheath testing and fault location instrument. Housed in a rugged IP65 pelican type injection molded case, the Digi-bridge can be used to for both cable insulation and cable sheath integrity testing. Its main function, however, is the precise fault pre-location using the tried and tested bridge fault location technique to locate failures in cable insulation and/or the cable jacket-sheaths.
The Digi-Bridge is particularly useful when traditional thumper impulse reflection (TDR) techniques do not work - for example shorts and resistive type cable faults. In addition, the instrument can be used for cable/jacket fault pinpointing using the step voltage gradient method for direct buried cables. The Digi-Bridge is an extremely portable test instrument with a long lasting, integrated, rechargeable battery allowing both AC (shore power) or DC (battery) operation.
