S&C Distribution Company’s (Tinley Park,IL) Model 344 Short Finder Plus, and predecessor products, are used to evaluate installations similar to industrial railroad grounding and isolating systems: Those components that are vulnerable to intermittency and failure include wire connections, track shunts, surge arresters, and grounding wires. The Model 344 Short Finder Plus, a two-wire, low resistance tester, provides two user-selectable frequencies that are fed into the object under inspection and evaluation. S&C File Probes insure clean electrical connections, says the company. An OLED display on the Short Finder utilizes a bar graph to depict the electrical properties of the tested items. Following qualitative tests, a built-in Spectrum Analyzer allows users to confirm that no unwanted voltages are leaking through track insulation or are being induced into the track.
