Smart Thump ST16 data sheet - .PDF file.

Megger has introduced the Smart Thump ST16 cable fault locator, which has been developed to meet the need for a safe, efficient, easy-to-use and competitively priced test set for identifying, pre-locating and pinpointing power cable faults. Typical users include power utility companies, LV street-lighting providers, private network operators, airports, ports, military bases, large industrial organisations and high-voltage electrical contractors.

The Smart Thump ST16 is primarily designed for locating cable faults on low- and medium-voltage distribution networks with system voltages up to 35kV. It is particularly suitable for use on PVC PILC and XLPE cables with cross-sectional areas from 16mm2 to 500mm2 and lengths from around 100m to 5km.

The key components of the Smart Thump ST16 are an impulse generator with an output of up to 1,500J of 0–8kV or 0–16kV and a high-performance time domain reflectometer. These are complemented by a user interface with ‘turn-and-click’ rotary pushbutton operation that lets the user automatically proof test, pre-locate and pinpoint faults. No adjustments or settings are required and, at every stage, the test set suggests the next logical step in the test sequence.

The test set sets the surge voltage automatically to minimise the stress on the cable, and also performs safety checks to protect the user from the risks associated with incorrect or faulty earth connections. After the initial test sequence has been completed, in-built intelligence interprets the results and presents them in a readily understandable format.

It is suitable for operation indoors or outdoors, even in wet conditions, and it can be powered either from a mains supply or from its own internal rechargeable battery.
