Baluns for manual measurements

Balun kit for manual measurement

Manual method to characterize communication cables

General Description

Increasingly, communication cable manufacturers want to know the behaviour of their products for R&D and marketing purposes. AESA proposes a non-automated solution to perform basic tests at a lower cost.

Thanks to our impedance transformers (Baluns), we are able to measure impedance, attenuation, crosstalk and all related parameters in order to make sure the cable's quality is heading in the right direction.

The various frequency ranges of our Baluns allow testing, for example, Cat 5, 6, 7 and 8 cables against international standards. The Baluns have been designed to be connected to a High Frequency Vector Network Analyser (VNA) with "N" type connectors.

Main technical characteristics

  • Cost effective solution for sporadic measurements of communication cables
  • Used with 50 Ohms output of AESA ATE's or an additional VNA
  • Optional software for guided measurements
