Features and Benefits

The SKD Series provides custom-designed and fabricated skid mounted packages with all of the cable test and fault locating equipment needed to equip a trouble truck or cable test/repair van to your specification. The system components are pre-mounted and wired, usually onto an aluminum skid or tray to create a package that is as small and portable as possible. It can either be permanently mounted in the vehicle or kept aside to be used on an as-needed basis.

The SKD Series offers a lower cost and shorter delivery cycle compared to buying a dedicated test truck. Rather than purchasing dedicated cable test and fault locating trucks, you can just fork-lift these skids into a van, truck, or pickup as needed. The SKD Series offers a practical and cost-effective method for creating a fleet of cable service vehicles.

HVI produces most of the products needed for testing and fault locating on medium and some high voltage power cables. A market leader in this realm, HVI works with other top vendors around the world to package outstanding products for orders requiring equipment not manufactured by HVI.
