Growth of Cable Fault Location and Telemetrics’ Offerings

Telemetrics offers cable fault locating solutions for both overground and underground cables. However, these solutions are more helpful for undergorund cables as they are not physically accessible. With several smart cities and large infrastructure projects coming up in different parts of India, underground cable laying for electrical transmission is also increasing. This widespread, and growing underground and overground cable network needs regular testing and fault location as part of operation and maintenance exercise.

Telemetrics product range includes Sheath Fault Testers, Surge Tester, Cable Route Tracers, Trolley mounted system for fault location in LT and HT cables etc.

For me personally, it is the unique blending of engineering and people skills, whether technical or in the human potential realm, that opens up new and exciting vistas for the growth of both companies”.
