The Centrix was originally introduced in 2006, and with well over 1,000 units delivered to customers all around the globe since then, it is the most successful test van system in the market. Now, Evolution is the latest iteration of the Centrix and redefines the state-of-the-art in cable fault location and in cable testing and diagnostics. While the all-new software interface provides a never seen before user convenience and clarity, radar/TDR and HV capabilities have been upgraded as well. The Centrix Evolution is equipped with a Teleflex® RDR, the most capable cable radar technology in the market. Options for resonance burning, ARM Live Burning, and pinpointing with 4,000 J allow for even more versatility in the field. In terms of cable testing and cable diagnostics, the Centrix Evolution offers a variety of solutions, reaching from pure sinewave units as competitive entry level options to high power VLF units as well as PD diagnostics with the superior near-line-frequency technologies DAC and Slope. With its comprehensive safety concept and live status monitoring the Centrix Evolutions remains the safest vehicle-installed system in the market.
