PD Defect Location in High-Voltage Equipment Insulation by Acoustic Sensors To act on deteriorating insulation the source of PD must be known.The insulation defects produce partial discharges, which emits electrical impulses, radiation of electromagnetic waves as well as acoustic signals.The AR700 measures acoustic signals with multiple sensors spread over the transformer. Then the software determines the failure location using the time difference of all incoming signals. Finally, these coordinates are shown in a 3D model of the transformer. AR700 device is used for measuring of acoustic signals on the external surfaces of gas-insulated breakers and substations, power transformers and other tank high-voltage equipment. The acoustic signals are caused by partial discharges in the insulation, which is the sigh of the defects.The advantage of “AR700” device is the quick installation of the acoustic PD sensors on the external surface of high-voltage equipment tank. The sensors have magnetic holder that is why there is no need to de-energize the equipment for the sensors installation. “AR700” device has 4 syn-chronic channels for acoustic signal measurement. This gives the possibility not only to find the defects in the insulation, but also to locate them. The location function of the “AR700”device is unique for acoustic devices.



  • The signal analyses and the PD zone location could be carried out both in manual and automatic modes.
  • Software calculates the fault location based on the time difference between the incoming signals.And report is generated about PD source location.
  • Convenient and handy through light weight, small size and battery operation.

Sheath Fault Locator is used for the identification of Sheath/earth faults which can get developed in any type of underground cable like LT or HT power cable or in unshielded multi core control cables. It can be a manufacturing defect or can get developed by improper handling during laying / external damage or any other reason due to which the metallic armour or cores develop leakage with the mass of earth. These faults can remain undetected for a long time as they do not hamper the working of the cable. However, this fault gets converted to a full-fledged fault

over a period of time.

CFL SFL can successfully locate sheath / earth faults on any type of cable. It offers different modes such as DC test / HV Test, Burning, pre-location and pin-pointing.


  • Three manually selectable convince DC ranges for application.
  • Cable and cable sheath testing up to 5 kV between metallic sheath / armour and mass of earth.
  • Automatic sheath fault pre-location with high precision measuring bridge method.
  • Cable sheath fault pin pointing by pool of potential method / fall of potential method /potential difference method.
  • Burn mode for conditioning the sheath fault - Conversion of high-resistance faults in LT cables.
  • Maximum 400 mA current gives better results.
  • Extremely user friendly to calculate the fault distance; uses a micro-controller based fault distance calculator that enables the operator to get the pre-location measurements with precise accuracy.
  • Automatic discharging facility of cable under test, in case of power failure or after switching off.
  • Continues operation for extended period in case of pin-point difficult sheath faults.
  • Rugged construction and easy to carry on site.

Cable Fault Secondary Impulse Filter CFL SIMF is mainly used for high resistance and flashing fault test for power cable with the voltage below 10kV, and for fault location with Secondary Impulse with conjunction of Pre-locator and HV surge generator .Latest fault locating technique for high resistance and flashing faults is Secondary Impulse Method (SIM).This method offers highly reliable results for faults on any type of power cable. It converts the faults to low resistance nature by creating arc across the fault. With the help of filter, the arc is sustained for extended period during which the pre-locator instrument CFL PL3 sends Time Domain Reflectometer (TDR) waves to the fault. These waves reflect back from the fault point and appear on the display as a short fault. This method gives precise result of fault distance for high resistance and flashing nature faults.

SIM filter SIMF is designed for mounting in a van for quick fault location. It can be mounted in a rack mounted system.

It is passive filter having own output power source. It uses the energy of the surge generator to create arc at the fault point.

A high voltage switch incorporated in the output circuit facilitates selection of SIM or ICM mode.

The most versatile Cable Fault Pin Pointer yet, SCOPE’s CFL PP3 is suitable for pin-pointing as well as route tracing of any type of power cable. For pinpointing it is used along-with CFL SG Series Surge Generators from SCOPE and for route tracing it is used along-with Audio Frequency Generator, CFL AG2 from SCOPE. Advanced technology with features like time lapse measurement makes it a tool that can tackle complicated faults easily. 

Ambient noise during pin-pointing has always been a problem. CFL PP3 with simultaneous display of magnetic and acoustic waveforms indicates the exact fault spot eliminating the above problem. It guides the operator about the lay of the cable under test during pin-pointing. The LCD display constantly gives information to the operator about any deviation of the cable route being followed. The instrument offers results based on vision. Thus the ground microphone becomes secondary tool to locate the exact fault spot.

The instrument incorporates separate route tracing circuit to be used with Audio Frequency Generator, CFL AG from SCOPE. The system has flexibility of coupling to the cable galvanically (direct connection) for isolated cable and inductively coupled if the cable is live. The depth of the cable under test is located with conventional triangulation method with precise accuracy. This system configuration can also be used to pin-point low resistance welded faults, where surge generator cannot be used.
