Locating faults on underground power cable has always been a challenge to utility line crews, maintenance technicians as well as equipment manufacturers since the introduction of buried cables. The challenge to the equipment user is the quickest most efficient method of pin pointing an underground cable fault with minimal training required for use of the cable fault locator equipment. The challenge to the equipment manufacture is the design of equipment with easy operating features for quick precise pinpointing of a cable fault that minimizes any additional damage to the cable under test.
