TDR 500 handheld time domain reflectometer

The BAUR handheld time domain reflectometer TDR 500 and TDR 510 are used for fault location in all metal cables such as power cables, coaxial cables, data cables and communication cables. With the time domain reflectometry, cables are tested for interruption, short-circuit, contact, illegal branching (electricity theft), water leaks and other cabling faults that alter the impedance of the cable. Simultaneously, the cable
length is determined and the distance to the fault is displayed.
Through the measurement range up to 7 m, both devices are especially suitable for locating faults in the vicinity, e.g. in service lines. But even in long measurement routes up to 6 km, TDR 500 and TDR 510 show a high measurement accuracy.

TDR 510: The BAUR TDR 510 comes with a device memory for 50 measurements and the option to compare the trace of an active TDR measurement with a saved trace. With the TDR software, the stored measurement data can be downloaded to a PC via the USB interface and processed further. To compare historical measurement data with the current measurements, the measurement data can also be loaded the other way, from PC to TDR 510.
