VCi-3™

VCi-3™ cable identification & phasing

used during installation or maintenance works on de-energized three phase systems. The VCi-3™ system is designed for cable and phase identification, mainly for instal­lation or maintenance purposes on three-phase electrical networks during power shutdowns.

The transmitter module injects a low current on the cable conductors by direct con­tact or magnetic clamps methods. A voice message is recorded by the user and will be transmitted along with digital signals. Groundings stay connected at both ends of the three-phase circuit during the test.

The detector module is used at the other end of the cable system. An array of sensors is available for cable and phase identification on different types of cables such as paper lead insulated cable (PILC), trench cables, cut cables, cable splices, and more. The detector module’s gain will be adjusted for optimal detection. The bar graph will display the strength of the detected signal. Indicators will display the detected phase, either A, B or C. The recorded voice message will be played from the detector’s speaker avoiding false detection.
