Features and Benefits

The High Voltage Inc CDS-2010U / CDS-2010UF are designed for fault location on cable systems rated up to 35kV, where the line to neutral voltage is approximately 20kv. With 1000 joules available at 5/10/20 kV, the CDS-2010U / CDS-2010UF offers a powerful impulse ideal for using acoustic and electro-magnetic detection instruments and is a true controlled/constant energy thumper. Equipped with a built in high voltage coupler, the CDS-2010U / CDS-2010UF are TDR/cable radar ready for arc reflection and current impulse methods. With up to 400 mA of burn current, high resistance faults can be rapidly reduced permitting fault location at less damaging voltage levels. Find your fault without causing the next one!

There are no better thumpers. The CDS-2010F / CDS-2010UF offers best in class features: Full impulse energy at 5/10/20kV, variable hipot/burn in all 3 taps (400 mA @ 5 kV tap, 200 mA @ 10 kV tap, 100 mA @ 20 kV tap), EPR high voltage output cable that stays flexible even in cold weather, TDR/Radar ready, and extremely durable and portable design with small footprint for years of reliable operation. Available in 120 Vac, 20 A input and 230 Vac, 15 A input (F suffix).
