The VCI-3 is a vocal cable identification and phasing system used during installation or maintenance works on de-energized three phase systems.
The VCI-3 uses a current injection principle. The current is injected through the wire conductors or by magnetic transducers. Grounding is required at one or two of the three-phase circuit ends, which can stay in place during the intervention to ensure maximum operator safety. The detector’s unique tone sensing system guarantees flawless and safe identification and tagging. The VCI-3 is a compact device that is very easy to use.
A tone transmitter, which integrates a speaker and a microphone to record the vocal identification message. The transmitter uses direct connection injection wires or three clamps for magnetic clip current injection. The clamps produce current in the wire even if it’s installed on the wire sheath. Thanks to its rechargeable battery pack, it can provide more than eight hours of continuous work.
A detector, highly compact, that uses a magnetic sensor. It has a speaker with adjustable volume and compatible earphones to listen to the vocal identification message even in the noisiest of environments. Sensor detection threshold according to cable type and length is adjustable through key buttons. Detection is guaranteed by a digital processing system that checks for the presence or absence of every tone that comes in from the transmitter end. ndb Technologie’s unique process guarantees a safe, precise and flawless detection.
