Surge Generator / Cable Thumper


The Surge Voltage Generators are used for pre-locating as well as for pin-pointing of high and low resistance faults in power cables. The stored energy of the high voltage capacitors is fed at intervals to the faulty cable. This causes an acoustic noise at the fault position which can be detected with a ground microphone

These powerful Cable Fault Locator Thumpers SSG 1100, SSG 1500, SSG 2100, and SSG 3000 are built in a 19" rack modular design, suitable as stand alone units, or along with components of the Syscompact Series fault location systems.

The following maximum surge energy is available at three stages 0 - 8, 0 - 16, and 0 - 32 kV: 

  • SSG 1100 - 1100 Joule
  • SSG 1500 - 1536 Joule
  • SSG 2100 - 2048 Joule
  • SSG 3000 - 3000 Joule

Optionally, the surge generator can be equipped with a low voltage surge supplement SZ 1000 or SZ 1600, providing surge energy of 1000 Joule or 1700 Joule even at a low surge voltage of 4 kV.

Portable Surge & Test Generator - STG 600

The STG 600 surge and test generator is a multifunctional cable fault locator for low voltage networks. The STG 600 can be used for cable testing as well as for precise location of high-resistive and intermittent faults in low voltage cables.

  • Optimized unique fault location system for low voltage networks
  • Low weight, portable 
  • High surge energy 600 Joule (optional 1000 Joule)
  • Output voltage adjustable in 0.1 kV steps
  • Easy operation and self-explanatory menu guidance
  • Safety control circuit according to VDE 0104

An optional coupling filter can be integrated in the STG 600 enabling the use of the highly sophisticated and efficient pre-locating Secondary Impulse Method / Multiple Impulse Method (SIM/MIM).
