Coax Testing Qualified Result 

Figure 2 - CableIQ Reporter



A result of Qualified indicates 

  • the CableIQ sees the wiremap adapter
  • the cable is not shorted 
  • there are no major structural return loss issues, i.e.: change of impedance from 75 to 50 ohms, splitters etc 
Do you have splitters in your link? Click here.
NO insertion loss measurement is made in Coax mode, only in twisted pair mode. If you desire insertion loss for coax, please take a look at the Coax Option for the DTX
