Hipotronics CF series testing systems for fault locating of primary cables consist of a dc proof tester, a burner and a capacitive discharge fault locator (thumper). These self-contained, portable fault locator units are rugged, reliable and compact. All models feature a continuous adjustable impulse rate from three to thirty seconds. Hipotronics CF series testing systems, available from Macey's Electrical have the following features:

  • 70 kV dc proof tester
  • 100 mA burner
  • 0 to 25 kV dc thumper

Hipotronics CF series testing systems operate from 120 V ac line or as portable generators (220 V ac is available as an option). The model CF70-12 cable fault locator is a 25 kV, 12mF thumper and the CF70-24 is a 25kV, 24 mF thumper. Both units combine a 70 kV dc proof tester, a 100 mA burner and a capacitive discharge fault locator (thumper).

Absolute accuracy of the impulse repetition rate is achieved by using a motorised spark gap. Each cable fault locator unit has an internal radar pickup for the model M602TDR. Hipotronics CF series testing systems have the following benefits:

  • Proof tester, burner, thumper in one self-contained unit
  • Burn currents to 100 mA
  • Impulse energies of 3750 J to 7500 J
  • Automatic and manual thumper mode
  • Can be operated from line voltage or a generator
  • Single HV output for all modes
  • Isolated and shielded return current path
  • Zero start interlock
  • External interlock
  • Face panel window
  • Mode indicator lights
  • Electrically operated shorting solenoids with mechanical ground assurance
  • Internal radar pickup for model M602TDR
  • Positive fault identification and location
  • Isolated return for increased operator safety
  • One unit for all URD cable maintenance testing
  • Visual ground verification
  • Precise impulse repetition
  • Variable impulse rate from 3 to 30 seconds
