Coax testing - DSP 4x00 CableAnalyzer

The following tests are carried out in the DSP-100, DSP-2000, DSP-4000, DSP-4100 and DSP-4300:

  • Impedance: Measures the impedance of the cable.
  • Resistance: Measures the loop resistance of the cabling, shield, and terminator.
  • Length: Measures the length of un-terminated cables.
  • Anomaly Detection: During a coaxial cable test, the test tool also detects and reports the position of the largest impedance anomaly (if any are present) on the cable.

Due to a bug in an early version of software for the DSP-4x00, the coax test occasionally reported an anomaly at 0 ft. This has been fixed in the release version x.925. Please click here to download this free update.
