Cable Fault Location
Adret is a South African brand of test equipment for Cable Fault Location, which has successfully penetrated the local market during the past twenty years. The brand offers an affordable alternative to expensive imported brands without compromising on quality. Not only do we supply this equipment to municipalities country-wide, but demand has grown in export markets such as Botswana, Namibia, Mozambique and even Dubai.
The factory is equipped with trained staff and machinery to ensure speedy repairs and technical support as required. These repairs extend to other brands as well. Clients therefore benefit from shorter lead times and also save on the cost of shipping faulty equipment abroad.

The CAL rating is known as the ARC THERMAL PERFORMANCE VALUE (ATPV) and is presented in calories per centimeter square and represents the maximum protection capability withstand a possible Electrical Flash .
¨ Cable Positive Identification: To identify target cable before spiking
à CI75 (625Hz AC)
à CI200 (DC unit
¨ Spiking Gun
When power cables are being identified for rework, it is always necessary, after positive identification, to make sure the cable is not live. The spiking gun is a device designed with safety in mind. The instrument drives a chisel through the conductors to ensure a short circuit which would cause the circuit to trip in the event that the said cable was still live. Thus confirming that the cable is safe to work on.
