Haefely Hipotronics CET-2000 Series Capacitive Discharge Primary Cable
Fault Locator is designed to fill the requirements between the highly
portable 5250 First Response Fault Locating System and the higher
voltage / energy CF70 Series Capacitance Discharge Cable Fault Locators.
The CET-2000 combines high discharge voltage with high discharge energy
to allow location of a wide variety of cable faults, especially when
used with a Haefely Hipotronics HV Digital TDR. In addition, the
controlled energy capability is quite beneficial for testing of XLPE
cable where a lower "thump" voltage but higher energy is best.
The CET-2000 can be used with a high voltage coupler (HVC-4100 Series)
and a time domain reflectometer (TDR-1150 or TDR-1170) to quickly
provide a specific distance to the fault in feet or meters. This
combination of equipment can greatly reduce the amount of high voltage
discharge (number of thumps) on a cable resulting in reduced damage or
degradation to the cable under test.
