BAUR Software 4
Software package for cable fault location, cable testing and cable diagnostics
Efficient. Cost-saving. Forward-looking.
The BAUR Software 4 is a software package for cable fault location, cable testing, and cable diagnostics. It enables efficient monitoring of the condition of cable networks in combination with BAUR hardware.
The BAUR Software 4 scope of performance far exceeds standard features; the operator is also assisted by the intuitive operational concept and helpful support functions.

Connect and go – the new operational concept
An ergonomic and intuitive software interface speeds up work processes and makes it easier for operators to do their jobs. Standardised sequences are simple to call up and start, while the software guides operators through more complex measuring tasks. Measurement results are clearly presented and can be interpreted at a glance. This means that new staff can easily find their way around the interface and quickly obtain reliable results. However, the software also offers an expert mode in which experienced measurement engineers have direct control over processes and parameters. Help is also at hand for users whilst locating faults, with cable data and measured values linked to maps so that operators can quickly see where the problem lies.
The BAUR Software 4 display enables clear visualisation of all important settings, fault location parameters, and cable data. The bottom part of the screen shows the measurement results and allows important events to be logged straight away.
Lots of devices – one software tool
Determine the cable condition with just one software tool
The BAUR Software 4 controls BAUR devices for cable fault location as well as cable testing and diagnostics. The software not only includes all the necessary standard measurement methods, but also simplifies the day-to-day work routines of measurement engineers with innovative features such as parallel TD and PD measurement as well as the step-by-step Smart Cable Fault Location Guide.
Easy and comprehensive evaluation of cable networks
The new BAUR Software 4 allows you to quickly detect and evaluate the cable condition in accordance with your own diagnostics philosophy. The intuitive operational concept supports asset managers and measurement engineers working on site, firstly with the extremely efficient measurement process and secondly through precise condition monitoring of cable networks. In short: The BAUR Software 4 elevates application and evaluation to a new level – thereby enabling further optimisation of the condition-based maintenance of cable networks.
Our software – your benefits:
- Better decisions based on comprehensive condition evaluation of the cable network
- Saves time on site thanks to automated sequences and report generation
- Easy operation thanks to the intuitive operational concept
BAUR Software 4 is the ideal partner for your individual cable diagnostics process
Your own diagnostics philosophy as the basis
Operators can either use standardised diagnostics sequences or create their own company-specific diagnostics sequences. To do this, in-house specifications for various cables or various phases in the network life cycle, such as commissioning or maintenance, are simply created within the diagnostics sequences. The criteria, ranging from current standards and guidelines through to company-specific specifications, are thus stored at the start of every measurement and the engineer starts the measurement procedure with just a few clicks.
Comparable results – better basis for decision-making
The sequences can be exported directly to all BAUR measurement systems used and can be adapted at any time as required. These standardised measurement cycles provide asset managers with reproducible and comparable measurement results that show not only the condition but also the ageing of a cable route over time – the ideal basis for making informed decisions concerning network planning and investment in maintenance.
Evaluation made easy
All measurements and tests (including all condition data for every cable route) are stored in the central cable database. The results are represented graphically during the process, even while evaluating the measurement. At the end of measurement, the overall condition of the cable route is displayed along with the results of the individual measurements.
All information at a glance
The BAUR Software 4 automatically generates reports on the measurements that have been performed. The reports contain all the information about the tested cables and can be exported as a PDF file. The diagnostics results and condition evaluation can also be easily presented in graph and table format.
The measurement methods
The BAUR Software 4 is used together with BAUR test and diagnostics systems for cable testing (VLF truesinus®, VLF square wave, and DC voltage), cable sheath testing, and diagnostics with dissipation factor measurement or partial discharge measurement.

|TD measurement||Dissipation factor measurement|
|PD measurement||Partial discharge testing|
|TD & PD measurement||Parallel dissipation factor and partial discharge measurement|
BAUR Software 4 for intuitive cable fault location
The BAUR Software 4 covers all the solutions for cable fault location, cable testing, and cable diagnostics, ensuring efficient and precise condition monitoring for cable networks when used in conjunction with BAUR hardware. It includes well-established measurement methods for cable fault location as well as innovative approaches such as Conditioning-SIM/MIM, enabling even faster and more effective localisation of wet cable faults that are difficult to locate.
Non-destructive and safe pin-pointing
through remote control of titron® via smartphone or tablet
By switching the high voltage on and off in a targeted manner, the stress on the cable and the system is reduced to the necessary minimum and operator safety is significantly increased.
Stop searching and start finding with the Smart Cable Fault Location Guide
The Smart Cable Fault Location Guide makes for faster, easier cable fault pre-location and pin-pointing. A special algorithm continuously analyses the current measurement results, which it then uses to generate optimum recommendations for how the operator should proceed in order to reliably locate the cable fault. Automatic fault analysis and clear graphic display of the measurement results with helpful functions for evaluation provide a better overview. This means that new staff can easily find their way around the interface and quickly obtain reliable results. However, the software also offers an expert mode in which experienced measurement engineers have direct control over processes and parameters.
The full flexibility of the software provides maximum support during the measurement processes whilst giving users the option to use their own expertise and select user-specific procedures at any time.
