Portable fault location system

  • True portable outdoor-ready unit, IP 43
  • Very easy to use “turn&click” single  rotary knob interface
  • Surge/Thump energy 2,000 Joule
  • DC testing up to 40 kV, surging/thumping  up to 32 kV, burning up to 40 kV
  • Prelocation methods: Inductive ARM with Multishot, ICE and DECAY
  • Built-in safety circuits for earth connection monitoring (F-Ohm) and touch potential monitoring (F-Voltage)
  • Full TDR control of all HV functions

The STX40 is the most powerful and most modern port-able fault location system in the market. It is ideally suited for proof testing, analysing, prelocating and pinpointing of faults on extruded low voltage and medium voltage XLPE- and EPR-insulated cables. With its 40 kV DC source and a potent high frequency burner it is also highly capable and effective on PILC cables as well.

The STX40 is fully automated with motorised HV switches controlled by either the rotary knob or the industry-grade colour touchscreen.

STX Operating Firmware

For update packages that contain only one rpm file and therefore only require an update of the operating software, proceed as follows:

1.  Copy the zip file to the main directory of a USB flash drive.

2.  Unzip the zip file to obtain the rpm file in main directory of the USB flash drive. 

3.  Insert the USB flash drive into the USB port of the powered-off STX 40.

4.  Turn on the STX 40.

Result: The new version of the operating software is automatically detected and installed at start-up.

Do not turn off STX 40 during the update.
