Product Details

Megger Fault Sniffer 2

The Megger Fault Sniffer 2 allows the user to discover underground cable faults themselves, without the need for a service provider or cable test van. The majority of cable faults inevitably result in burns of the cable sheath, this intuitive instrument can detect the gases caused by these burns. The intelligent built-in two-sensor technology can even differentiate the combustion gases characteristic of cable faults, from normal gases and prevent misinterpretations. Crucially, with the Fault Sniffer 2 consumers/households can remain connected to the power grid during operation.

Gases are sucked in by the incorporated vacuum technology of the Megger Fault Sniffer 2 before being detected and evaluated in real time. The user is then presented with a graphical representation of the combustion gas concentration on the large digital screen. Using a semiconductor and electrochemical operating principle, results are displayed in a range of approximately 1000ppm. This user-friendly set includes a hydrophobic filter with double membrane & dust filter at the gas inlet and an extendable ergonomic rod adaptable to match the user's height.

Save time and money with the rechargeable Megger Fault Sniffer 2 which can operate continuously for ten hours on just one battery charge. This IP54 rated device features a backlit 240 x 160 pixel LCD display, bluetooth connectivity and the ability to store up to 2,000,000 measured values.
