ARIADNA IC1G Ultraportable live network LV cable identifier
Electric utilities and their contractors need to identify live electric cables under certain circumstances: when opening a trench, making branch circuits, before and after distribution network maintenance duties, etc.
This identification has to be quick and unambiguous due to possible consequences that could result when choosing the wrong cable (life threat, network failure, etc.).
Ariadna Instruments has developed the IC1G, an ultraportable Cable Identifier which is used in LV distribution cables for positive cable identification.
The IC1G Cable Identifier consists of a transmitter (IC1G-TX) and a receiver (IC1G-RX).
This equipment is easy to use: the transmitter (TX) is connected to an LV distribution cable and the receiver (RX) is used to identify or locate that cable upstream, towards the MV/LV transformer.
