All six of the UK’s electricity distribution companies have equipped their engineers with the CableSniffer™. With over 2500 currently in service the CableSniffer™ is a BEST SELLER in its field.

The CableSniffer™ is a revolution in locating faults in underground LV cables fast. Instead of relying on exploratory excavations, it samples and analyses the gases emitted when cable insulation starts to break down, via a series of 8mm bore holes. Faults can normally be located in under an hour and to an accuracy better than 1 metre, eliminating the need for multiple exploratory excavations.

Our customers in the UK have confirmed that the CableSniffer pinpoints problems in underground Low voltage cables much faster and more accurately than any other method.

Accurate and reliable instrument that enables the restoration of supplies to customers and far fewer holes in the road with the added bonus of major cost savings in time and materials.

Normally, the highest concentration of gas is directly above the fault. Faults can usually be located in under an hour to an accuracy better than 1 meter, eliminating the need for multiple exploratory excavations which can cost around £1000 each.
