Megger SWG 500 16 kV 500 J surge wave generator

The Megger SWG 500 16 kV 500 J surge wave generator is a versatile and powerful tool designed for effective cable fault location within the utility industry. Operating within the middle voltage range typical of surge wave generators (SWGs), this model can deliver a robust output of up to 500 Joules across multiple voltage settings 4 kV, 8 kV, and 16 kV. This flexibility allows technicians to optimize the surge energy for different applications and conditions, making it especially useful for a wide range of diagnostic needs.

One of the standout features of the SWG 500 is its ability to switch between three voltage ranges while maintaining the full surge energy capacity of 500 Joules at each setting. This capability is particularly beneficial for precisely targeting and identifying faults across various depths and types of cable insulation, providing tailored solutions that enhance both accuracy and efficiency in fault location.

The SWG 500 16 kV, 500 J is ideally paired with reflectometers, forming a crucial part of a comprehensive cable fault location system. Surge wave generators like the SWG 500 are essential for both pre-locating faults, which involves identifying the approximate fault area, and pinpointing the exact location of faults. This two-step process significantly reduces downtime and enhances the reliability of power distribution networks.
