LAN cables are specified for increasingly broader frequency ranges. Conventional equipment cannot measure more than three frequency decades, and that is why the cable industry is seeking a substitution measuring method.
AESA is proud to introduce Cobalt, a new balunless automatic test device based on the modal decomposition mathematical algorithm.
Cobalt is a valuable tool to assist you in cable development. By conducting measurements on individual wires and not just on pairs, the Cobalt device allows measurement of a particularly wide range of parameters that cannot generally be tested by conventional methods.
Equally importantly, final cable testing is rendered simpler and more reliable as it is fully automated, thus eliminating the need for the operator to conduct very tricky tasks with the associated risks of handling errors
