Megger (Norristown, PA) now offers a handheld time domain reflectometer (TDR) that locates faults on mixed paired metallic cables. The CFL535G can test the capabilities of connections and locate faults for up to 12 miles (20 km).

This high resolution, compact TDR features dual channel capability and dual aspect display. Megger’s CFL535G allows technicians to compare cable pairs to each other and determine if one is faulty based on differences shown on the TDR. The CFL535G is ideal for use by telecommunications technicians, electrical service contractors, and cable television companies, and on all metallic pairs including twisted pair copper, concentric, and coax cables. It establishes a benchmark for future comparison, measures cable length, locates and evaluates splices and joints, and detects cable taps.

The product features an ultra-fast 2 ns pulse width that nearly eliminates dead zones and provides a real time trace for tested cables giving quick and accurate results. It also offers two inputs that enable simultaneous measurements of two different cables.

Technical Specifications:

  • Ultra-fast 2 ns pulse.
  • Five output impedances: 25, 50, 75, 100, and 120 Ohm.
  • Velocity factor between 0.2 and 0.99 in steps of 0.01.
  • Powered by rechargeable Li-Ion battery (12 hours real world usage).
  • Operating temperature of -15° to +50° C.
