Cables can be damaged during or after installation. Typically the damaged section is hidden from view behind walls, above ceilings or buried underground. The CableTool Pro uses TDR (Time Domain Reflectometry) technology to quickly identify opens or a shorts and provide the distance to all problem detected on the cable.
The state of the art graphical high resolution TDR has a color touchscreen to quickly identifying multiple faults on paired metallic cables. The CableTool Pro has a resolution of 6 inch and a 15,000 ft maximum range.
Like the CableTool, the CableTool Pro diagnoses cable faults with no launch or dead zone and has an accuracy up to ±2%.
High-resolution performance allows the CableTool Pro to locate multiple problem events on the cable under test. The CableTool Pro uses a step with a sub 1ns rise time, which means the operator can identify multiple events that are less than 1ft apart. This enables the technician to tell which of two components on a cable is causing the problem, even when they are close together. This is particularly important in troubleshooting drops, because components such as splitters and ground blocks can be closely spaced.
The Dead Zone effect of a standard pulse TDR can mask near end faults and make them undetectable. The CableTool Pro uses a step function to eliminates this problem. Step TDR technology means that the signal is injected at full strength until a disturbance is detected. This makes step TDR technology perfect for detecting near end faults that standard pulse TDRs can miss.
The Expert Mode automatically finds multiple faults on the cable under test. There's no longer a need to interpret the results; they're clearly marked. This means substantial savings in training time and reduced time to get accurate, repeatable measurements.
A Compare feature allows the operator to select a saved trace to display on the screen to be compared with the cable under test. This allows the technician to go back to the same cable over a varying time span to see how the cable degrades.
The CableTool Pro is for Cable Contractors, CATV, Telco Technicians & Low Voltage Installers to identify and find distances to an Open, Short or changes in impedance in seconds.
