Basic handheld time domain reflectometer

  • Simple operation.
  • AUTO selection of gain and pulse width.
  • Ultra fast pulse for near end fault identification.
  • Trace HOLD feature.
  • IP54 rating offers real life working.
  • Designed for use on all metallic cable pairs.

Megger's TDR500/3 is a handheld, compact time domain reflectometer that is ideal for locating faults in cables. It has a minimum resolution of 0.1 m and a 5 km maximum range depending on velocity factor selected and cable type.

Skilled at time domain reflectometry, the TDR500/3 can characterize and locate faults in metallic cables and is capable of testing cable and COAX runs.

Four output impedances are available (25, 50, 75, and 100 Ω) and a velocity factor between 0.2 and 0.99 will meet any cable test requirements.
