There are many situations in which it is necessary to quickly and accurately identify live Low Voltage (LV) cables, for example, when opening a trench, making a branch in a line, before carrying out some maintenance tasks, when making a new connection, …
Merytronic has developed the Ariadna IC2G, an ultra-portable Cable identifier device that is used for positive cable identification, in Low Voltage cables.
The device consists of a transmitter (IC2G-TX) and a receiver (IC2G-RX). Its use is simple: the transmitter (TX) is connected to an LV cable and the receiver (RX) is used to identify or locate that cable upstream, towards the MV/LV transformer.
The new generation of identifiers, ILF G2 | ILF G2 Pro, has been designed to add, edit and store over the same map (thanks to the GridGIS Connect app developed by ARIADNA Grid) the location and connection of all consumers in the Low Voltage distribution network, that is to say, it allows identifying and digitalizing which Transformer Substation, LV panel, outgoing feeder and phase each of the meters (subscribers) are connected to.
This new generation of equipment is aimed to big mapping campaigns of distribution networks, helping to reduce the campaign’s duration and leading to great cost savings.
GridGIS Connect app enables field personnel to work with ILF G2 | ILF G2 Pro and ILF 12, the LV network topology identification devices of Merytronic. Automatically stores identification results of energy meter / smart meter link with Secondary Substation, transformer, LV panel, feeder and phase numbers. Suitable for different distribution network arrangements, in cascade or in parallel
GridGIS connect with Ariadna ILF12
GridGIS Map Creator app allows to map, with GPS coordinates, aerial/underground MV and LV electrical networks with different assets directly on the field. Design to work with the MRT-700, underground cable locator de Merytronic.
