Megger CFL535G TDR locates faults on mixed paired metallic cables
By Alyssa Dalton
June 16, 2014 – Megger says its CFL535G handheld time domain reflectometer (TDR) can locate faults on mixed paired metallic cables for up to 20 km (12 miles).
Ideal for use on all metallic pairs including twisted pair copper, concentric or coax cables, this new handheld unit is used during cable installations. According to the company, the CFL535G establishes a benchmark for future comparison, measures cable length, locates and evaluates splices and joints and detects cable taps. An auto set-up mode for instant use is incorporated into the TDR, which helps determine the impedance of the cable under test, sets the instrument accordingly and selects the optimum gain and pulse width chosen by the operator.
