These Cable Testers can be used for testing long or short cables, either fixed or installed. The separate REMOTE barrel allows easy testing of cables where both ends of the cable are not available together. Poor solder joints or high resistance is shown by a reduction in the intensity of the display illumination. A table of the main fault conditions is printed on the Cable Tester.
Two units are available in this range, one to test Fischer Triax cables and one to test Lemo Triax cables.
To test a cable, switch on the cable tester, ensure that the red LED illuminates. If this is not the case then fit or replace battery. (See Power Supply section.) Connect the cable to be tested to the appropriate connectors, one end to the SEND section and the other to the REMOTE barrel. The condition of the cable should then be displayed. If no LEDs illuminate then press the TEST button. Follow the explanation on the top of the unit to indicate the condition of the cable.
The SEND section consists of Female Socket Triax connector. The separate REMOTE barrel consists of a Male Plug Triax connector.
The cable tester is powered by one 9 volt battery (not included). Alkaline or rechargeable types are recommended. To replace the battery, LIFT TO WITHDRAW as directed on the battery compartment, replace the battery, observing correct polarity and slide the drawer home again.
Batteries are available individually unless otherwise stated.
