E-Scout FI-3C

Underground Fault Circuit Indicator

The E-Scout FI-3C is a fault indicator used on underground systems. Fault indicators are becoming more of a standard in advanced electric distribution networks because they help reduce outage time, improve system reliability, and reduce maintenance man-hours.

Principles of Operation

1. A fault triggers a group of indicators to start flashing along the feeder line.

2. The lineman simply follows the path of flashing fault indicators all the way to the first un-flashed fault indicator, thereby identifying the fault location.

The E-Scout FI-3C features robust design, customer-specified reset time, and 360-degree visibility. The E-Scout FI-3C is easily installed with a hot-stick and is IEEE-495 compliant and ISO-9001 certified.
