Spiking Cable | Check Voltage Absence on LV & HV Power Cables

The PICOUP 250 and PICOUP 400 2 in 1 hydraulic cable spiking and cable cutting tools are used to check for and ensure the absence of voltage on low voltage and medium voltage underground cables.

After the spiking process is complete, these PICOUP tools supplied by PBWel can also be used to cut the cable. These tools offer total security to the user during application according to NFC 18510 standards.

Spiking Tool Features

  • 2 actions combined into one single tool (spiking and cutting)
  • Enables the user to limit any resulting short circuit to a single-phase / ground fault when spiking multi-core cables. This cause any protective devices to trip before a 2 or 3 phases fault can be created
  • In the event of spiking a live cable, the spiking blade can be replaced easily (minimising cost impact)
  • No physical connection between the tool and the user
  • Damage to infrastructure is minimised when spiking as a single phase to earth fault is created using a dedicated, local 70mm² copper earthing cable
  • Cutting failure sensor
  • Indication on the remote at the end of cutting operation
  • Hydraulic over-pressure safety valve
  • Battery charge status indicator
  • Prevents the start of cutting if the battery is low
  • MOS INDUSTRIE : 20 years of expertise
