The Pro400 Graphical TDR is a great tool for locating faults in metallic cables with 2 conductors.  Twisted pair, coax, LAN cabling, etc. are simple to test for distances to shorts, opens, etc.  By connecting the leads to the cable to test, a graphical display quickly and easily shows faults and events on that cable.

GFL3000 Ground Fault Locator

GFL3000 Ground Fault Locator
The GFL3000 is designed to pinpoint nicks or cuts in underground cables or wires where voltage is leaking to ground.  The GFL3000 transmits a powerful pulsed charge that is detected by the receiver at the top of the A-Frame. The receiver has an analog meter that kicks in the direction of ground faults. Following these kicks will quickly lead you to the exact location where electrical voltage is being lost to ground.
