Schonstedt Introduces FaultMaster Ground Fault Locator

November 23, 2009, Kearneysville, WV -- Schonstedt announces the launch of the FaultMaster, the first Schonstedt ground fault locator. The company has spent three years in research and development and testing on this instrument, and reports that the FaultMaster lives up to the Schonstedt family standards for quality, precision, and durability.

This new locator detects ground faults in direct buried cables when insulation damage causes a "leak" to ground. A transmitter forces a signal into the cable, and the "A-frame" is walked along the cable path until the fault is detected and displayed on the instrument screen. The A-frame is lightweight and very easy to use. The Tx5™ transmitter uses rechargeable batteries, and the A-frame uses 4 AA batteries.
