If there are any testing issues or equipment failures during operation due to an expected cable issue, we can verify, trace, and locate the source of the faulty shielded cable.
We identify the faulty cable through Megger IR tests and pre-locate it with Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR) or Arc Reflection Method (ARM). We use ARM with TDR and acoustic/electromagnetic receivers to examine the cable for faults. We will be able to detect the location of the cable fault through radar indication.
Understanding how to read the radar is essential to quickly finding the fault since most cables are underground or in enclosed piping extending up to miles.
