The CableTool CT50 from Psiber Data Systems provides studio engineers, CATV and low voltage installers, contractors or anyone involved in the installation or maintenance of metallic cables with the capability to quickly find faults in cables up to a distance of 2500 feet. Using TDR (Time Domain Reflectometry) technology, the CableTool diagnoses cable faults with no launch or dead zone and an accuracy to +/-2%. Simply select the appropriate cable type from the pre-stored library or enter the cable NVP, attach the leads to two conductors of the cable and with a single press of a button the length of the cable or distance to an open or short is displayed. Voltage on the wires up to 250v is continuously measured by the built in, true RMS voltmeter and is displayed to warn of a potentially unsafe condition.
The CableTool CT50 will also inject a tracing tone onto the conductors to trace cables with a standard tone probe. A kit version, the model CTK5015 includes the model CT15 tone probe.
The universal banana jack test lead connectors allow for a wide range of adapters for any connector type. In addition, a BNC and F adapter are included. A carrying case and 4 "AA" batteries included.
