DC Trace

DC Trace

DC Trace, is most advanced and user friendly DC Earth (Ground) Fault Locator. This portable instrument consists of Signal Generator & Signal Receiver. It uses latest digital signal processing technology. It’s ability to detect earth faults in live DC system quickly & accurately in on-line condition greatly relieves the substation maintenance engineers from nightmare of earth leakages & its detection.


  • On-Line fault detection, No shutdown required.
  • Signal Generator has adjustable output voltages (24V, 48V, 110V, 220V, 500V and 1000V) suitable for different applications.
  • Pinpoints high grounding resistance faults (up to 1MΩ).
  • Digital Signal Processing Technology for detecting grounding resistance and distributed capacitance.
  • Frequency Spectrum Analysis to test the existing interferences available in the circuit and selection of correct test frequency.
  • Signal Receiver with adjustable sensitivity at different locations of circuit helps to locate the current leakage quickly.
  • Direction (positive or reverse) indication for leakage current helps quick tracing of the faulty grounding path.
  • Following multiple analysis & indications of ground fault makes pinpointing easy:
    • Direction of current flow
    • Phase angle difference
    • Comparison of signal strength
  • Can detect complex, multipoint faults.
  • Type Tested as per IEC 60068.
