The Phase identification System PIL 8 permits a fast and especially safe phase determination at the jointing location during the mounting of medium voltage cables.
According to DIN VDE 0105 0100 part 2 (EN 50110-1) from Okt. 1997, Pos. 220.127.116.11 Topic 3 (Page 12) it specifies :
"... If the earthing or shorting has to be removed for the duration of measurements or tests, suitable other safety measures have to be taken.”
Such safety measures require a relatively large effort and are not always practical. The specific advantage of the technology used in the PIL 8 is the fact, that the ground or shorting must not be removed. In opposition, this grounding it is an essential part of the procedure, which means, the cable must be grounded and shorted for the system to work. Resulting the use is absolutely safe. For each phase the according transceiver clamp are installed tot he grounded cable end and then at the selection point each phase is identified and marked.
Maintenance free transceiver clamps
Suitable for any type of switch gear
Requires only one person
