Introducing the TS100 Cable Fault Finder. The TS100 is the easy to use, competitively priced cable management solution that saves time and money while it simplifies many common tasks. It’s the fastest tool available for measuring to opens and shorts, (even intermittent faults, because the unit measures constantly when “on”) – all from one end of the cable. The TS100 works on virtually any two or more conductor cable up to 2,500 feet with no additional calibration for wire thickness, and uses 5 types of clips. With its patented tone generator, identifying a specific pair is quick and easy, even in proximity to current-bearing cable. Its bright, large LED screen and simple menu is easy to read, even in low light conditions. And when clipping on to an unidentified pair at a job site, with voltage up to 250VAC, the TS100 will immediately sound an alarm. The unit also works when moisture is present. Now, measuring cable or identifying tone on a specific line are no longer time consuming, two-person tasks. With the TS100, contractors can monitor cable inventory in trucks and warehouses, and generate more accurate bids for jobs by quickly assessing needs, and managing cable stock with greater accuracy. And, technicians can find and fix cable problems without pulling new wire, or blindly cutting into walls or streets, saving additional time and money. The TS100 allows one person to get all these tasks done from just one end of the cable, with a single, competitively priced tool. next level solutions

4 AA alkaline batteries provide 50 hours “on” time. (Appx. 1 year, normal use). 5 minute auto-off if unit is not connected; 1 hour auto-off when connected. No damage if batteries are installed backwards. Input Protection: 250V RMS AC, Continuous or Intermittent. Moisture: If exposed to water, TS100 will suffer no damage. See moisture notes in Noticessection of manual. Impedance Range: Auto-compensation within 25 to 330 ohms. Cables with an impedance outside this range may produce erratic or incorrect readings. Maximum Length: The unit will display "-LL-" if the cable is too long to be correctly measured. Representative maximum cable lengths are: 2500' CAT-5 twisted pair 2000' 12/2 AC wire 1000' RG-6/U TV Coax 500' RG174/U Coax Minimum Length: No minimum length. Minimum non-zero reading is 2 feet. High Voltage Detection: AC voltage > 5 to 15 Volts RMS will trigger High Voltage Warning. Load Detection: DC load of ± 20% of the cable impedance will indicate "LOAD". Measurement Rate: Maximum of 4 complete measurements/ second, decreasing to 2 seconds per measurement. Based on cable size and uniformity. Measurement Technology: Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR) with 50 ohm drive impedance, 6 V maximum pulse height. (Patents Pending). Tone Injection: Approximately 1 kHz at an amplitude of 80% battery voltage. Variable frequency and cadence. Tone changes when cable condition changes to "normal-open" from any other condition. Cable Type: Virtually all two or more conductor cables. Temperature: 0º to 55º C operating; 0º to 70ºC storage. Dimensions: 7.4" Tall x 1.5" Thick x 2.75" Wide Ordering Information
