The TDR1000/3 has a minimum resolution of 0.1 m/0.3 ft and a 5 km/15 kft maximum range depending on velocity factor selected and cable type.
The new TDR1000/3 Time Domain Reflectometers solve the problem of locating near-end faults in voice and data communications networks. By using launch pulses with durations as short as 2 ns, this innovative instrument can accurately determine the location of faults that are less than a metre from the point of connection.
AUTO set up for instant use.
Ultra fast pulse for near end fault identification.
Trace HOLD feature to allow comparison between cables.
Designed for use on all metallic cable pairs.
Auto set up makes it easy for inexperienced users
The TDR1000/3 incorporates an auto set-up feature that automatically determines the impedance of the cable under test and sets the instrument accordingly, and also automatically selects the optimum gain and pulse width according to the range chosen by the operator. Auto set-up makes it easy for even inexperienced users to obtain good results, and is also a big time saver for experienced users.
Despite its compact construction, the TDR1000/3 incorporates a large high-resolution back-lit display. This makes it easy to analyse the traces and to accurately position the cursors, two of which are provided to gives users full control and to provide instant indication of the distance between two points.
Trace hold allows trace comparison
A further key benefit is a trace hold function, which allows comparisons to be readily made between cables: the trace for the first cable is held on the display, and is then overlaid by the trace for next cable tested. This invaluable comparison function is normally only available on much larger and much more costly dual-channel TDRs.
The TDR1000/3 Time Domain Reflectometers are designed for use on all metallic cable pairs. Four output impedances are also available (25 Ω, 50 Ω, 75 Ω or 100 Ω) and velocity factors are selectable from 0.2 to 0.99.
The TDR1000/3P model designed for use on Low Voltage power circuits is supplied with fused test leads.
Megger offers a wide range of test and measurement instruments for use in the building wiring, electrical power and communications industries. Established originally in the late 1800’s the company has been manufacturing test and measurement instruments designed to perform preventive maintenance and troubleshooting for decades.
Our products provide testing solutions in the most critical maintenance areas including cable fault location, protective relay testing, and power quality testing, as well as being the supplier of choice for hand-held electrical test and measurement instruments for electrical installation, data and telecom engineers.
Over the years Megger has acquired several other major electrical test and measurement manufacturing companies both in the USA and UK. These companies now operate under the Megger name and include the well known brand names of Multiamp, Biddle, Foster, AVO and Metrosonics.
Megger’s commitment to the industry is reflected in its technical leadership and in being the first to design and introduce many key products to the marketplace. These include the first portable insulation tester, commercial cable fault locator, DSP based watthour meter test system, and software-driven protective relay test set.
Megger manufacturing plants are certified to the full operational requirements of ISO9001 and the manufacturing process strictly adheres to the highest standards for quality, reliability and safety.
