Surge Generator

Top Definition

A device used to locate faults in cables underground. This device uses a high voltage discharge to produce an audible thump where the fault exists. The thump is caused by the discharge exiting into the ground. The device is typically self-contained as a portable device that can be used out in the field, (see also, 'Thumper"; 'Surge Generator'; 'Banger').
