Pinpoint which cables need repair or replacement quickly and easily.
Our testing methods are non-destructive – preserving the health of the cable.
Prevent unnecessary outages through effective asset management.
A cable testing program will help stretch your budget.
30+ year old cable can still be in good condition. This five-year study shows many aging assets can remain in service.
National Research Council – the government of Canada’s premier research and technology organization – developed a diagnostic test to help utilities assess the health of aging underground cable. An agency of the Government of Canada, it conducts research and development in a...

CableQ Determines True Cable Health
This knowledge has given us peace of mind and allowed us to focus our capital program on the assets that need it most.
Prioritize Asset Replacement
We know the age of the underground cables in our grid, but age is not always the best indicator and can lead to replacing aging assets too early.
True Cable Condition
With much of our cable approaching 30 and 40 years old, we do not have the budget to replace all of these assets. With the help of CableQ and their non-destructive cable testing technology, we have been able to find out the true condition of these cables and use the data to react appropriately.
Manage Assets Effectively
Oakville Hydro has a lot of underground development, and it’s at the age where we really don’t want to wait for failures to occur and create outages. We would rather have more predictive capability.
This method far exceeds others on the market. It quickly diagnoses the health of our XLPE, without further stressing the assets. With this data, we can form a comprehensive cable management strategy.
Quick, Non-Destructive Testing
Within a few days we were presented with a summary of easily read diagnostic test results indicating cable condition.
