Megger CFL510G TDR locates faults within 3 ft of connection
By Anthony Capkun
April 19, 2013 – Megger offers a hand-held TDR (time domain reflectometer) featuring a 2ns pulse width that, says the company, virtually eliminates dead zones, locating faults less than 3 ft from the point of connection. Designed for use by linemen in the communication and power industries on all metallic pairs, including twisted pair copper and coax, the CFL510G is suitable for CATV/cellular, power and telephony applications. Incorporated into the CFL510G is an auto set-up feature that determines the impedance of the cable under test, sets the instrument accordingly and selects the optimum gain and pulse width chosen by the operator. A large, high-resolution backlit display comes standard, and the unit features four output impedances, and a velocity factor between 0.20 and 0.99. The IP54-rated CFL510G is lightweight, powered by AA batteries and comes standard with a three-year warranty.
