Weighing less than 33 kg the EZ-Thump series are the most portable fault location systems on the market. It utilises the “Easy Go” test system, which is easy to operate, interprets the results and requires minimal training to find faults.

On-board is a TDR with a 7.6 km range and arc reflection at 4 or 12 kV respectively for pre-locating. For pinpointing,

EZ-Thump offers a surge energy of 500J, d.c. testing for breakdown detection and insulation resistance measurement. The

units are operated from line or the internal battery. They can fit in the boot of a car, making them ideal for a flexible quick response fault finding strategy.

EZ-Thump Cable Fault Locator
  • Focus on URD cables
  • Fully self-contained
  • Determine fault distance automatically
  • Testing in low and medium voltage networks
  • Extremely rugged design

For customers who need more power and functionality with fault locating, Megger offers the Surgeflex15-1150 M and the Surgeflex25-1150 M. These systems are designed for the more frequent and experienced users. They offer the benefits of fully-functional radar with the additional power needed to fault locate on any type of distribution system.

The Surgeflex15 and the Surgeflex25 offer 15 kV and 25 kV at 1150 joules respectively and can locate faults on any URD system. These units feature ARM filters, a switchable capacitor that allows full energy output at any voltage and a new, 10.5-inch color automatic radar screen. They’re the smart choice for the experienced locator.
