Insulation fault locator. Discharge locator.

PDS Partial Discharge Scanner.
The PDS is used to detect and locate partial discharges on medium voltage insulated joints,
to monitor their condition while in service or to test for quality, just after installation.
The PDS indicates the intensity of the partial discharges, converting the electrical charge units (pC)
into decibels (dB).
So the reading is kept as a simple intensity level indication, proportional to the probability of a
faults presence in the tested joint.

PDS  Partial Discharge Scanner

Insulation fault detection.
Insulation faults are an important factor in degradation and reduction of lifetime of an electrical joint.
This translates by raised exploitation costs and questioned reliability, while economic performance and
reliability are key criterions in the evaluation of an electricity supplier.
It is then important that an electric utility has a wide spread, quick and efficient tool to check for quality and
health of its electrical network.
 
The markets demands over electric utilities necessarily transfer to their subcontractors, who must comply
with higher quality requirements regarding their work.
As the electric utility for which he works, the subcontractor that has tools allowing him to monitor and to
certify the quality of his job will become an attractive and reliable choice.

Safe manipulations
Easy to use, the PDS can be handheld or mounted on a two-parts hot stick provided with each unit.

Close-up of the PDS sensor
This insulated and waterproof capacitive probe catches the electric field sharp variations that
characterizes partial discharges. It integrates both capacitive and inductive sensors,
to allow partial discharges detection in virtually any cable configuration.

Visual and audio indicators
The visual indicator is a bargraph with eight steps, each step corresponding to twice the intensity (6dB)
of the previous level, for a total range from 6dB to 48dB.
An audio indicator which frequency is proportional to the displayed intensity allows the user to locate
any fault even if the handling conditions dont allow him to see the display.

Intensity level
The PDS indicates the intensity of the partial discharges, converting the electrical charge units (pC)
into decibels (dB). So the reading is kept as a simple intensity level indication, proportional to the
probability of a faults presence in the tested joint.
