Basic conditions, types of faults
Cable damage can be due to various causes. The most common sources of faults include end of service life and external influences as well as improper assembly. When these types of cable faults occur, the defective spot needs to be detected as quickly as possible and the fault rectified in order to minimise the duration of the failure.
Process steps & methods
The right measurement method counts
The objective of fault location is to locate a cable fault as quickly and precisely as possible so as to provide the ideal basis for fast repair and reconnection. Fault location is carried out methodically following a logical sequence made up of four steps.
