- For discharging high voltage cables after testing
- Highly flexible, clear silicone covered earth cable
- For use with the PT18-10 and PT30-10 cable test sets
The DP20 and DP40 discharge probes are designed for discharging high voltage cables after testing. The probes are supplied as standard accessories for the T&R PT18-10 and PT30-10 cable test sets, and are also available separately. The discharge probes consist of a pointed probe connected to a 5m long earth lead via a series of surge resistors with an insulated handle. The earth lead insulation is clear silicone allowing the conductor to be easily inspected, and is terminated in an M6 hooked crimp.
|Maximum discharge voltage||20kV||40kV|
|Maximum discharge energy||3.6kJ||7.2kJ|
|Maximum discharge capacitance||12μF||6μF|
|Earth lead length||5m||5m|
|Earth lead CSA||6mm²||6mm²|
Note: Under no circumstances must these discharge/earthing probes be connected to energised ac distribution systems.
