CDS-2010 Cable Fault Locator / Thumper

With its 20kV ouput, the CDS-2010U / UF is good for fault locating cables rated up to 35kv, having a line to ground voltage of 20kV. The high burn current of 400mA can be used to condition a fault to reduce its arc over voltage to permit thumping at a lower and less damaging voltage level, yet still at full energy. The CDS-2010U or CDS-2010UF can thump a cable at just 5kV yet deliver 1000 joules. Find your fault without making more.
