Cable Test Van ETL-80V

Cable test system ETL-80V is a modular diagnostic and test equipment, which is designed for testing and fault location of both LV and MV cables. The key parameters are designed flexible to satisfy customer’s specific requirements.



  • DC cable testing up to 80 kV;
  • Converting high-resistive cable faults into lowresistive with a use of burn generator;
  • Surge energy up to 2400 J;
  • Precise fault prelocating using Time‑Domain Reflectometer RIF‑9;
  • Cable route tracing with a use of 200 W lowfrequency generator and receiver;
  • Precise pinpointing using a surge wave generator with a ground microphone.




  • Easy user friendly interface;
  • High safety level;
  • Multistep self fault protection;
  • Flexible auxiliary equipment integration.
