Baur IRG 2000
The pulse reflection test set IRG 2000 is a portable, easy to use, single-phase unit for cable fault pre-location using the time domain reflection (TDR) method on low, medium and high voltage cables. It can also be used on live cables up to 400 V. Further fault location methods are available with the application of the appropriate coupling device. Its measuring ranges enable pre-location on cable lengths from 0 m to 65 km (0 to 213,000 feet). The IRG 2000 is operated by function keys and is fully menu-guided. The LCD colour screen allows up to three waveforms to be displayed at the same time. The unit is supplied with rechargeable batteries and can also be powered directly by mains supply.
The computer aided pulse reflection test system IRG 3000 is the basic control unit for all cable fault location methods. It is specially designed as a pulse reflection measuring instrument for fault location on single and three-phase cable systems. Latest generation technology is implemented in the expert system, with an integrated 200 MHz transient recorder for the highest measuring accuracy. It offers unique features for intelligent manual and automatic cable fault location.
The windows-based software allows every user easy and fast operation of the system. Up to three cable fault location methods can be displayed at the same time on the TFT-LCD display. The high resolution and zoom function enable accurate pre-location of cable faults. The design of IRG 3000 has set new international standards in automatic cable fault location.
The shirla is used for cable - and cable sheath testing, fault prelocation as well as for sheath fault pin pointing according to the step voltage method.
The special measuring bridge is performing the measurements according to Murray and Glaser. With the integrated high voltage DC source, shirla allows prelocation of low resistive as well as high resistive cable faults. The measuring principle enables prelocation of faults especially at unshielded control- and lighting cables as well as cable sheath!
Analyses are done automatically and the results are displayed digitally.
For cable fault pin pointing according to the step voltage method, a defined DC pulse pattern is applied and the step voltage can be picked up by using the KMF1 or UL30 receiver set.
Baur STG 600
The low voltage cable fault location system STG 600 includes a surge generator, a high voltage source for testing and precise location of sheath and cable insulation faults. The STG 600 is a multifunctional cable fault locating set especially designed for low voltage power distribution networks. The surge and test generator is used for cable testing and for pin-pointing of high-resistance and intermittent faults in low voltage cables. An optional coupling filter can be integrated in the STG 600 enabling the use of the highly sophisticated and efficient prelocating method: secondary impulse method/multiple impulse method (SIM-MIM).
Baur SYSCOMPACT 3000
The SYSCOMPACT 3000 is a multi-functional cable fault location system in a modular 19” plug-in design. The surge and test generator is designed for testing cables and cable sheaths and precise location of high-resistance and intermittent faults.
The SYSCOMPACT 3000 is used in low and medium voltage networks, for locating faults on cables up to and over 200 km in length. The integration of the latest fault prelocation methods SIM-MIM and impulse current method allows the precise location of high and low-resistance as well as intermittent faults using the IRG 3000 echometer. The IRG 3000 computer-supported impulse-reflection measuring system permits automated cable fault location. For the first time, the software supports a standardised computer link in the user’s language.
Baur UL 30
For pin-pointing of cable faults the digital Universal Locator UL 30 is used with the ground microphone BM 30 and surge voltage generator (SSG/STG).
With its integrated acoustic propagation time measurement the UL 30 displays the distance to the fault in metres and indicates the position if the fault is reached. The special feature of UL 30 is the calculation of the fault distance between two manholes.
In combination with the audio frequency transmitter (TG) and detecting rod (SP 30) the UL 30 is used for route tracing and depth evaluation of electric lines and cables.
