Arc Discharge Generator GI-TA

Arc Discharge Generator GI-TA is designed to work on the fault location in combination with the TDRs: TDR-TA4.7 / TDR-TA1.7 / TDR-TA1.9 and with the third party TDRs (with ARM and ICE methods support), significantly expands their ability to location of high impedance defects which are not localize with low-voltage TDR method.
