  • 09 June 2005

  • Robert Davis


The CableSniffer is an intuitively simple device to pinpoint Low Voltage (LV) cable faults.

It operates by “sniffing” the gases given off by faulting LV cables as the cable insulation burns.

The CableSniffer was developed through a collaborative research programme involving a number of parties, including all of the UK Distribution Network Operators (DNOs) through the Strategic Technology Programme (STP), local universities and the UK Department of Trade & Industry (DTI).
