IRG 4000 portable
Time domain reflectometer
Forward-looking. Safe. Flexible.
The IRG 4000 portable time domain reflectometer is used in combination with the system software for locating cable faults in single- and three-phase cable systems. Thanks to the novel operational concept, cable faults can be located more rapidly and easily on the go with the integrated IRG 4000 portable. Fingerprint generation allows work to be performed strategically with optimum data management.
Safe working at every place of use. The remote control function of the IRG 4000 portable allows the operator to leave the high-voltage area during the measurement process. Thanks to the new portable solution, fault location tasks can be performed even more flexibly, making the IRG 4000 portable the ideal partner for fast cable fault location on long cables – both on land and under water.

Cables are getting longer and longer
Cable fault location expertise for long land and submarine cables
The IRG 4000 portable time domain reflectometer is the solution for cable fault location on long land and submarine cables. The ideal partner for taking stock of the situation without tying up an expensive system. Immediately at hand and suitable for every place of use, even where space is at a premium – the IRG 4000 portable enables reliable cable fault location with minimal effort.
BAUR Software 4 for intuitive cable fault location
Efficient. Cost-saving. Forward-looking.
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. THE BSW 4 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.
BAUR XL-CFL cable fault location for long submarine & underground cables
The demand for power is constantly growing, and so too is the length of the cables used. We are becoming increasingly dependent on renewable energy, more and more of which is being generated offshore. Long power cables are becoming indispensable – both on land and under water. Classed as critical infrastructure, these cables are becoming increasingly important.
Long submarine and underground cables are indispensable and robust, but sadly not indestructible. Find out in the video what dangers they are exposed to and why preparation is absolutely essential when it comes to XL cable fault location.
Suitable for every place of use
IRG 4000: As a portable device or integrated in a system
IRG 4000 portable
Area of application
Faster. More mobile. Safe.
Different places of use present different challenges. Offshore, space can be tight and conditions wet. On land, you don't want to wait for or tie up a system. Mobility and flexibility are important, as is the robustness of the device. In some cases, a large system is simply not necessary. The portable version of the IRG 4000 is quickly at hand and the ideal precursor to a system installed in a test van or container.
Immediate use for maximum mobility
- Portable and suitable for use in the field
- Watertight up to IP68 when transport case is closed (IP54 when transport case is open)
Remote operation via WLAN connection enables safe, protected working outside of the HV area
- Can be used at any location
- Collects reference data quickly and easily, without tying up a system
