Transmission Line Theory and Advanced Measurements in the Field Webcast

1   Hour | Webcast - recorded | Where & When


New techniques have been developed that will help maintenance personnel reduce downtime due to faulty transmission lines, the major cause of failure in complex communication systems. This paper will explore transmission line theory for a wide range of transmission media, and relate that theory to practical methods for analysis and characterization of systems in the field using all-in-one ruggedized equipment. New measurements include very long cable insertion loss, gain through frequency translation, waveguide VSWR and distance to fault. There is also an examination of Frequency Domain Reflectometery (FDR) vs. Time Domain Reflectometery (TDR) techniques, advantages and tradeoffs.
