Low-voltage cable tester
Using time domain reflectometry, the TRD900 auto-ranging, fault-finding instrument can measure power, telephony, CATV and LAN cable lengths, and find the distance to an open or short. The instrument features an internal library of 39 standard cable types, and it functions with any cable consisting of at least two insulated metallic elements, one of which can be the sheath or shield of the cable. It has automatic output impedance control from 25 ohms to 150 ohms and a measurement range of 15 ft to 10,000 ft with a minimum resolution of 20 in.

The Interragator EZ GPR system uses electromagnetic waves to locate buried utilities. The system’s 2-parameter input adjusts the depth of investigation and soil type values, and a depth calibration routine automatically adjusts system settings. An on-demand backup cursor gives immediate and accurate location of buried utilities, while a high-frequency, 400-MHz antenna transmits and receives pulses during subsurface surveys. The antenna allows the system to detect utilities as small as 0.80 in. at depths of 18 in. The system can detect larger utilities down to 20 ft, depending on soil condition. It features a real-time display that’s daylight readable, and users can transfer data to an external computer.
