wire 2018: HIGHVOLT presents system for real-time fault location

Fast, simple and cost-effective: The HiRES Locator detects cable breakdowns in real time. Fast, simple and cost-effective: The HiRES Locator detects cable breakdowns in real time.

Where is the fault? Searching for breakdowns in miles of medium-voltage and high-voltage cabling is a little bit like looking for a needle in a haystack. Previously, a fault could only be pinpointed offline after a malfunction had occurred. The measurement needed would then be complex and time-consuming, and often additional investigation was needed before the fault could be localized.

HIGHVOLT has now developed a new measuring device called the HiRES Locator, which makes fault location quick, easy, and cost-effective. It determines the location of the breakthrough live and in real time. This is good news not only for grid operators and energy providers, who are required to monitor cabling systems of ever greater complexity, but also for cable manufacturers, who can integrate the HiRES Locator into their testing procedures for the purposes of quality assurance.

Would you like to know more about our HiRES Locator? Then visit us at the wire trade fair in Düsseldorf from 16 - 20 April. Our stand number 26A is located in hall 11.
