Facility Wiring TDR
Overview zGuided - wire zUnguided - wireless zCharacteristics and quality determined by medium and signal zFor guided, the medium is more important zFor unguided, the bandwidth produced by the antenna is more important zKey concerns are data rate and distance
Design Factors zBandwidth yHigher bandwidth gives higher data rate zTransmission impairments yAttenuation zInterference zNumber of receivers yIn guided media yMore receivers (multi-point) introduce more attenuation
Wiring Closet zOrderly Cable Layout zCan include all of the following: yNetwork equipment xFiber optic cables, CAT5 xWAN connections xLAN distribution yElectrical yVideo / Cable TV yTelephone yAlarm systems: intrusion, fire, door
zWorks by transmitting a pulse of energy into a cable zObserving that energy as it is reflected by the system
Time Domain Reflectometer zBlind Spot yWidth of pulse ySpeed reduced based on media type
Time Domain Reflectometer zDistance vs. VOP zVelocity of Propagation – speed of light ySpeed of light in vacuum = 299,792,458 m/s ( C ) yVOP varies in different media – presented as a % yDistance pulse travels (D) = C x Time (T) D=C*T ; T = D/C yMeasured time from transmission of pulse to receipt of reflected pulse – calculate distance xRound trip delay sec * 299,792,458 m/s = 200,000 xLength = 200,000 / 2 = 100,000 meters ySpeed reduced based on media type
Time Domain Reflectometer zDistance - Time T = D/C
Time Domain Reflectometer zVOP for various media zImportant for VOP to be accurate zMeasured or Obtained from MFR
A reflection with the same polarity indicates a fault with OPEN (high impedance) tendencies. The reflection shown at the second cursor is a COMPLETE OPEN.
A reflection with the opposite polarity indicates a fault with short (low impedance) tendencies. The reflection shown at the second cursor is a DEAD SHORT.
The middle reflection at the second cursor is a PARTIAL OPEN followed by a COMPLETE OPEN (end of the cable). The more severe the fault, the larger the reflection will be.
The middle reflection at the second cursor is a PARTIAL SHORT followed by a COMPLETE OPEN (end of the cable). The more severe the fault, the larger the reflection will be.
Two sections of coaxial cable with a barrel connector shown at the second cursor. The amount of reflection caused by the connector is directly proportional to the quality of the connector and connection.
Coaxial taps (both indoor and outdoor) will cause reflections along the waveform. The quality and value of each tap determines the amount of reflection.
A splitter or directional coupler can be identified although accurate measurements are difficult due to multiple reflections. The second cursor identifies the splitter. The two reflections following are the ends of each of the two segments.
A water soaked cable will display a waveform with a downward slope indicating the beginning of the water and an upward rise at the end of the water. Generally, the area in between the two reflections will appear "noisy".
Pulse Waveform 2 - Medium Pulse Width The width of the output pulse is also referred to as the blind spot or dead zone. It is more difficult to "see" a fault when it is contained within the blind spot.
