Marshall Bird and Jason Aaron of Megger, together with Bill Gadberry and Doug Eggen of CBM, held 3 class sessions. They used these sessions to educate the Missouri Coop Association linemen on locating a primary underground cable fault.

These are valuable tools enabling the line crew to test the cable for fault, locate the cable and the fault, and then ‘thump’ the cable to produce an audible sound. The sound produced aids in locating the damaged portion. Marshall and Jason also demonstrated incorporating the Digiphone and the EZ Thump to allow the crews to pinpoint the fault. This minimizes both the time to find and repair the cable and minimize the amount of digging the crews need to access the fault.
