Non Contact Cable Testing

Research output: Patent

Patent numberUS7705606
<mark>Original language</mark>English


A method of determining the state of a cable comprising at least one electrical conductor, uses a generated test signal and applies it to at least one conductor by a non-contact coupling transmitter. The resulting signal is propagated along the at least one conductor and a non-contact electrical coupling receiver picks up a reflected signal, and compares the reflected signal to expected state signal values for the cable to determine its current state.
