ETL-35K

CABLE AND SUBSTATION EQUIPMENT TEST VAN

ETL-35K is a versatile multipurpose cable and substation test van with three-phase connection to electrical test objects.

ETL-35K system has a multitude of applications in electrical equipment testing and maintenance: testing cable insulation with DC (rectified) voltage up to 60 kV, measuring small leakage current of surge arrestors, high-voltage testing with AC voltage up to 100 kV at industrial frequency, underground utilities tracing, cable fault pre-location and pinpointing, and measuring capacitance and tan delta of various electrical objects at industrial frequency.

ETL-35K is fitted with a collection of traditional and modern safety mechanism providing comprehensive operator protection operator.

THREE-PHASE CONNECTION

ETL-35K features a three-phase connection method to the test objects and a phase switch on the operator panel for a specific phase selection.

Three-phase connection makes fault location quick, easy and safe – it enables phase comparative pre-location methods, yet does not require an operator switching the connection leads.

FAULT PRE-LOCATION

35k rif 1200x831

Detachable digital time-domain reflectometer RIF-9 included with the system is used for determining the distance to faults in electrical power cables with all the main pre-location methods:

Low-voltage method

  • TDR (time-domain reflectometry): low-resistance faults, open cable breaks, various impedance changes characterization (cable sleeves, branches, etc.), total cable length measurement (incl. on a drum or bundle) and cable shortening ratio measurement.

High-voltage methods

  • ARC/ARC multi-shot (arc reflection method): high-resistance and unstable faults, minimal harmful effects on a cable.
  • ICE (impulse current envelope method): high-resistance faults that cannot be converted to low-resistance by burning faulty insulation.
  • DECAY (voltage wave oscillation method): faults with high breakdown voltage.

POWERFUL BURN UNIT

ETL-35K is equipped with a powerful burn unit with output voltage level switch, used to convert high-resistance cable faults to low-resistance ones, which allows to subsequently apply pre-location and/or pinpointing methods for precise fault localisation.

ETL-35K burn unit provides output current up to 6 A at up to 20 kV voltage or output current up to 15 A at up to 0.5 kV voltage.

SURGE WAVE GENERATOR WITH A SURGE LEVELS SWITCH

35k akustic 1200x831

A surge wave generator with up to 2000 J surge energy is used for pinpointing cable faults with an acoustic method.

The generator is supplemented with a surge level switch allowing to select output voltage in the ranges of 0…8 / 0…16 / 0…32 kV, which delivers maximum possible energy of the surge pulses.

CABLE TRACING AND PINPOINTING FAULTS BY INDUCTION METHOD

Cable test van ETL-35K can optionally be supplied with LFG-200 low frequency generator providing up to 200 VA of output signal power.

Addition of the generator, turns ETL-35K into a powerful system for underground utilities tracing, their burial depth determination and cable faults pinpointing by the induction method.
