Smart Thump ST16 Portable Cable Fault Location System

  • Product Description
  • Specifications
  • Features

The Megger SMART THUMP ST16 portable cable fault location system provides safe, efficient and easy-to-use solutions to quickly identify, prelocate and pinpoint various types of cable faults for Low/Medium Voltage power cables.

This new system requires significantly less training than a traditional thumper-only system. The SMART-Thump™ 16 is the only fault locator with built-in intelligence to interpret the results of the initial test sequence. The “Turn & Click” rotary button operation lets the user automatically proof test, prelocate, and pinpoint the fault from one convenient control console. No adjustments are required. 
 
Key benefits:
  • 1500 J at 8 / 16 kV, 16 kV DC-HV proof test 23/46mA Burning
  • Integrated ARM and ICE Prelocation
  • Easy Go - automatic sequence to proof test, pre-locate & pinpoint
  • Automatic interpretation of test results
  • Sunlight readable, transflective 5.7” TFT colour display
  • Safe OP Check protects user from incorrect or faulty lead connections
  • USB interface for trace export via USB flash drive
  • The latest  E-Tray system built in allows the user to access and operate every function through an intuitive interface, without the need to make adjustments; the software will suggest the next logical step.                                                                                                                                                  
Circuit parameters include:
  • System voltage up to 35 kV
  • Insulation EPR or XLPE
  • Typical conductor sizes between #2 and 500 MCM (34 mm2 to 250 mm2)
  • Typical circuit lengths from a few hundred feet (100 m) up to 3 miles (17,000 ft or 5,000 m)
  • Typical end users include: operations department of power utility
