The Megger TDR2000/3 US (1007-062) is a state of the art, dual channel, high resolution, compact Time Domain Reflectometers with a color screen for locating faults on paired metallic cables.
The TDR2000/3 has a minimum resolution of 0.1 m / 0.3 ft. and a 20 km / 65,000 ft maximum range depending on the velocity factor selected and the cable type.
Various output impedances are available (25, 50, 75, 100, 125 ohms) as well as an auto impedance matching feature. The velocity factor can be set between 0.2 and 0.99 to meet any cable test requirements.
Features and Benefits
The TDR2000/3 has a large, high resolution, color, WVGA display with easy set up features. Directional control buttons, together with soft keys, provide intuitive and easy operation for the user.
An AUTO selection option ensures that the most effective parameters are selected depending on the range required, aiding rapid diagnosis of the TDR trace. The ability to manually override the auto function allows fine tuning to enable identification of hard to determine faults.
Dual trace and dual cursor capabilities allow full flexibility, giving the operator full control and instant indication of distance between two points.
A trace comparison feature also allows close examination between trace conditions. Extra high resolution together with a white-light backlight, user definable color schemes give the graphical display a vibrance, aiding the user in identifying key events on the trace.
100 internal trace memories provide for the storage and recall of test results. The traces can be recalled to the display for analysis or compared with an active display to aid in fault location.
Alternatively the stored results can be downloaded to a computer, via the USB port, using the TraceXpert software and USB lead provided.
Megger’s own built-in AutoFind mode allows for speedy identification of faults. One press of the AutoFind key automatically adjusts the range and gain, and positions the cursor to the first major event on the cable. Press the AutoFind key again and the cursor will jump to the next detected disturbance.
