Twisted pair Ethernet cables are increasingly being used in vehicles to transmit high-frequency signals. The TD2400-HF offers the ability to sample these cables in the production environment with a complete, easy to use test system. The adaptronic control software NT Control guides the operator through the necessary tasks, performs the test automatically and reports the result. A measuring laboratory is therefore no longer necessary. The test setup is more comprehensible for OEMs.
With the fully integrated Keysight network analyzer E5071C with 4 ports and a measuring range up to 20 GHz and its calibration equipment as well as adapter boards, a high-precision measuring instrument with the following additional features is available:
■ Adaption to cable length
■ Automatic recognition of recalibration
■ Suitable for measurements according to OPEN Alliance specification TC2 (100 Mbit/s) and TC9 (1 Gbit/s)
The cable routing is also carried out according to the specifications of the OPEN Alliance TC2 and TC9. The UUT-dependent routing is displayed on the monitor.
