What Is the Difference Between Medium and Low Voltage Cable Fault Tester and Traditional Tester

Since the buried cable appeared in our life, cable fault detection has become a test of people's work. How to accurately find out the cable fault point through layers of soil requires not only the experience of maintenance personnel, but also corresponding equipment support. Cable fault tester is one of the commonly used detection equipment. Today, we mainly discuss the difference between the medium and low voltage cable fault tester and the traditional one. Difference analysis between medium and low voltage cable fault tester and traditional cable fault tester: first, introduction of fixed-point method of cable fault. There are two kinds of cable fault rough measurement methods: electric bridge method and pulse reflection method. There are the following methods for cable fault fixed point: 1. Acoustic measurement method: acoustic measurement method is used for fixed point, which is a common method for cable fault fixed point from the past to the present. And it is the most effective method. However, the instrument used has developed from a simple acoustic electric amplifier to an acoustic magnetic synchronous fixed-point instrument widely used now. The fixed point of acoustic measurement method is applicable to high-voltage cable, low-voltage cable, directly buried cable, cable trench cable, etc. 2. Step voltage method: step voltage method is adopted for fixed point, which is mainly aimed at the fixed point of outer sheath grounding fault with requirements for cable outer sheath insulation. Now, step voltage method can also be used for fixed point of grounding fault of some directly buried unarmored low-voltage cables and wires. 3. Electromagnetic method and audio method: it is feasible to fix the point with electromagnetic wave or audio method in principle. However, from the current situation, there is no fixed-point instrument with reliable performance and practical application. In other words, the fixed-point instrument using electromagnetic wave fixed-point is still being developed by various scientific research institutions, which needs to be further verified and improved in practice to reach the practical application level. 2、 Introduction to medium and low voltage cable detector (bridge tester): most of the medium and low voltage cable detectors in circulation in the market now complete the function of cable fault rough measurement. Its principle is generally using the electric bridge method, but now it has adopted computer technology and intelligent electric bridge. There are low-voltage bridge, high-voltage bridge and so on. Some instruments also use the principle of ultra-high voltage digital bridge. The voltage applied to the fault point is generally more than 200V, and the most Gao can be added to 20kV. For cable fault with low fault resistance (resistance less than 600m & omega;). The fault distance can be roughly measured with medium and low voltage cable detector. Scope of application: applicable to leakage fault test with low fault resistance value. It is generally used for cable fault test below 6000V & lt; Rough measurement of fault distance & gt Advantages: for cable faults suitable for testing, it is simple to use and has low technical requirements for users. Fool test. In addition, for some fault points, such as some cable joint faults, due to the long creepage distance of the fault point, the fault of flashover discharge cannot be formed. Because the pulse flash method cannot be used to roughly measure the fault distance, the electric bridge method has its advantages. In the actual test, when the insulation resistance of the fault point is lower than 100m, but the high-voltage flashover test (impulse voltage is greater than 20kV), the low-voltage measured discharge current displayed by the operation box does not exceed 5a, and the sound is clear when the ball gap is discharged, which indicates that the fault point has not formed flashover discharge, and the flash tester displays the full-length waveform of the cable. In this case, we can basically conclude that the cable intermediate joint is faulty. The middle head can be excavated directly, and the cable fault pointing instrument can be used for accurate pointing, so as to further diagnose the fault point.
