HD Electric unveils three-phase cable identifier
By Alyssa Dalton
June 13, 2014 – The three-phase cable identifier from HD Electric claims to identify the correct phases on long lengths of de-energized and discharged overhead and underground cables.
Boasting a test voltage of 36VDC, the identifier promises to test cable lengths of up to 7 miles. It includes a sender and receiver that are designed to be handheld with or without gloves. LEDs on both units indicate that the units are connected to the same phases on each end of a cable.
