Prelocation of Cable Faults using Time Domain Reflectometer Method

In a three-part series on underground cable fault location, we discussed various aspects of cable fault location – from types and causes of cable faults, methodology for identifying cable faults and finally, we illustrated the step-wise process for detecting faults in underground cables.  We also introduced the Time Domain Reflectometer (TDR) method for identifying underground …

Step 2 in Underground Cable Fault Location : Cable Route Tracing, Pinpointing, Cable Identification, Repair & Re-test

In the previous blog  we discussed the principle of cable fault pre-location and noted the criticality of this technique towards reducing the time taken to identify location of the fault. We also deliberated upon the various cable fault pre-location techniques.  In this blog post, we will continue our ongoing discussion on cable fault location by …
