According to the manufacturer, the device tests the characteristic impedance of Category 3, Category 5, and coaxial cable with better than 1-inch resolution over 4800 feet.

Equipped with a 200-picosecond rise time and continuous graphic display, the tdr also features a push-button menu selection of startup settings, memory store and recall, printer, test mode, display mode, and cable type.

Options include a companion printer for local printout of test results and Windows software that allows for test-result storage on a personal computer.

The 7-pound device measures 10.5x165 9.5x165 4.5 inches and has a liquid-crystal display screen of 4.5x165 2.5 inches. The tdr is priced at $4995.
