This precision TDR (Time Domain Reflectometry) meter is an advanced instrument capable of measuring cable lengths and finding distance to an open or short using the Time Domain Reflectometry principle. The MT901 offers exceptional features and a range capability normally associated with far more expensive instruments.
This meter can be used for any cable consisting of at least two insulated metallic elements, one of which may be the sheath or shield of the cable. The meter has automatic internal matching networks to allow testing of 25, 50, 75, 100, 125 or 150 cables. This corresponds to power, telephony, CAT V and LAN cables. It can be closely matched to the cable under test using the menu selection keys. The propagation velocity value can be similarly adjusted to match the cable under test thus ensuring an accurate distance measurement. If velocity of propagation is not known, it can be measured on a same gauge cable with a known length of more than 10 meters.
The MT901 is specially designed to speed up the onsite testing of data networks and production of cable assemblies. The meter quickly tests shielded and unshielded LAN Cables and identifies all commonly found wiring faults including such as Open Pairs, Shorted Pairs, Reversed Pairs, Crossed Pairs and Split Pairs of twisted pair cable in local area network (LAN) installations, given access to one end only.
The MT901 incorporates an oscillating tone generator, that is detectable with a standard tone probe (not supplied) available in the market place and similar to the MTC40, for use in the tracing and identification of pairs within a cable. The MT901 can store up to 20 cable test results for custom cable types in internal non-volatile memory and the stored cable library provides quick and easy access to 39 standard cable types, which enables accurate measurement without the necessity of entering V.O.P.
