Megger 659600 / 659600E Cable Height Meters are designed primarily for power cable applications. The Cable Height Meters emit short bursts of sound which originate from the cone shaped transmitter. The microprocessor in the instruments calculates the elapsed time for the bursts of sound to be reflected from the cable back to the instruments. The result can be displayed in either feet and inches or meters. However, before the final measurement can be displayed, the air temperature must be measured because the speed of sound varies at approximately 0.2 percent per degree Celsius.

Applications for the Megger 659600 / 659600E:
  • Telephone lines
  • Distribution lines
  • Transmission lines
  • Cable television (installers and contractors)
  • Street lights
  • Sag (lowest point to ground)
  • Separation between up to six cables
The Megger 659600 / 659600E ships complete with:
