Partial Discharge Scanner (PDS)
The PDS allows online partial discharge detection on underground cable accessories and equipment for security / maintenance purposes.
Insulation fault detection
Insulation faults are an important factor in degradation and reduction of the lifetime of an electrical joint. This translates into raised exploitation costs and questionable reliability, while economic performance and reliability are key criteria in the evaluation of an electricity supplier. It is important that an electric utility have a widespread, quick and efficient tool to check for quality and health of its electrical network.

The market's demands on electric utilities necessarily transfer to their subcontractors, who must comply with higher quality requirements for their work. Like the electric utility for which he works, the subcontractor that has tools allowing him to monitor and to certify the quality of his job will become an attractive and reliable choice.
Visual and audio indicators
The visual indicator is a bargraph with eight steps, each step corresponding to twice the intensity (6dB) of the previous level, for a total range from 6dB to 54dB. An audio indicator, the frequency of which is proportional to the displayed intensity, allows the user to locate any fault even if the handling conditions don't allow him/her to see the display.
Compact and practical tool
Small to ease access to all types of installations, the PDS can be handheld or manipulated with a hotstick depending on the situation. Obviously, along with strippers and insulated tools, it belongs in one’s toolkit, for everyday work.
