Cable sheath test sets

    • Cable sheath test set InterSheath

    • Complete set in a rugged case
    • Reliable location of earth faults
    • Early detection of contact to earth

The InterSheath cable sheath test set was developed for testing and locating the faults in the cable sheaths of the shielded, plastic-insulated power cables. This set can also be used for locating the earth fault in unshielded, plastic-insulated power cables, control and communication cables. The preventive cable sheath test and, if required, fault location followed by repairs is a suitable way to minimise the probability of a fault and an interruption in power supply. Moreover, a cable sheath test shortly after laying the cables is a reliable method for on-time detection and rectification of faults that may occur when laying cables.

  • The InterSheath cable sheath test set comprises:
  • Cable sheath test generator TS6-D400
    For testing the outer sheath of shielded, plastic-insulated cables by measuring the leakage current at a configurable test voltage of up to 6 kV. For locating the faults in shielded and unshielded plastic cables.
  • Fault location device TS-VM
    For prelocation of earth faults in plastic-insulated cables, especially in case of damages of the outer plastic sheath of shielded cables.
  • Fault probe LS-M
    Location of earth faults in electrical systems. Early detection of cable faults by locating any contact of the cable shield with earth.
