Toronto, Canada – GAO Instruments ( has released its time domain reflectometer (TDR) cable fault locator. This CATV meter is intended to locate radio frequency (RF) cable faults such as short circuits, open circuits, and high resistance joints and splices. It determines cable faults by transmitting an electrical energy pulse that propagates at a certain speed depending on the cable type.
The portable TDR cable fault locator, model A0500006, features a rugged design, high accuracy and stability and simple operation. It can optionally be used to calibrate cable type; instructions for each step are indicated automatically on the screen. Upon analysis, the fault locator automatically displays the fault type and the distance to the fault. This cable fault locator has a maximum test range of 1200 meters with a resolution of 0.001. In addition, it is able to test eight types of cables such as 50ohm and 75ohm Co-axial cable.
