Tempo Communications has launched the CableScout 90 TDR (time domain reflectometer). The CS90 is designed to support DOCSIS 3.1 and features a 1 ns pulse, internal lithium polymer battery pack, a high-resolution sunlight-readable color display and a simple user interface.
The CS90 gives the user the option to save screenshots or full-range trace files for later analysis or that can be shared with others. It also includes "FastFind," a software feature that automatically scans to find the end of cable or largest event.
CS90 has multiple operating languages - English, French, German and Spanish at launch - and the company is working on several more.
Software is now updatable in the field. An SD card or a USB flash drive can additionally be used to "clone" cable types and settings between units.
