Overhead line testing system

Adapter for the safe operation of Teleflex reflectometers on overhead line systems

  • Easy to operate
  • Very good resolution at close and long range
  • Dangerous induction voltages reliably discharged
  • Test pulse up to 1,500 V for long distances
  • For distances over 2,000 km

Used together with a reflectometer, the Overhead line testing system can show impedance irregularities in disconnected overhead lines of all voltage levels. These irregularities include short circuits, breaks and intermediate conditions. The system is mainly used for checking the overhead lines before they are switched back on, avoiding damage from travelling waves and potentially fatal problems. Regular checks should be performed, particularly to detect any changes in the line. The special design and switch-on system eliminate risks to the operator and damage to the equipment from induced voltages and currents.
