Fault Location

Abletech Underground Group specialize in underground electronic testing and fault diagnosis. Fault location is to identify earth leakage or shorted faults between various phases of low voltage underground circuits.

Algorithms for fault location are essential tools in the operation of a power scheme because correct and reliable identification of faults is directly related with the supply availability. Underground assets are constantly exposed to fault occurrences due to numerous reasons, such as lightning strike, failure of power system components due to the aging of equipment and human errors. Our locators specialise in the location of faults in an accurate and timely matter.

Our locators are trained extensively to use a fault locator that puts a traceable signal into isolated circuit’s and pick it up with a frame which penetrates the ground or has two foam water dipped feet to identify faults under concreate and tiles.

Example of our fault location capabilities:

  • Screening faults
  • Disruptions
  • Faults due to moisture
  • Sheath faults
  • Phase faults
  • Earth leakage
  • Intermittent current loss
  • Location of faults in twisted pair 3 phase

Abletech Underground Group locators are capable of interpreting plans and can accurately locate underground utilities, line of direction and depth. Our location services Combined with our vacuum excavation potholing capabilities ensure we are the most accurate underground service location company.
