The Fault Mapper Model CA7024 is a handheld, alphanumeric,
TDR (Time Domain Reflectometer) Cable Length Meter and
Fault Locator, designed to measure the length of electrical and
communication cables. It can also indicate the distance to a
fault in the cable (open or short), given access to only one end
of a two or more conductor cable.
By incorporating fast-edge step TDR technology, the Model
CA7024 measures cable length and indicates the distance to
open or short circuit faults, to a range of 6000 ft or 2000m
(user selectable), on virtually any type of cable. The Model
CA7024 indicates the cable length or fault distance and
description, alphanumerically on a 128 x 64 graphical LCD.
An internal library of standard cable types enables accurate
measurement without the necessity of entering Velocity
of Propagation (Vp) information, and the Model CA7024
automatically compensates for d
­ ifferent cable impedances.
The Model CA7024 incorporates an oscillating tone generator
that is detectable with a standard tone receiver (see page 11)
for tracing and ­locating cables. The Model CA7024 also d
­ isplays
a “Voltage Detected” warning and sounds an alarm when
connected to a cable energized by more than 10V, which
prohibits testing.

The Fault Mapper Pro® Model CA7027 is a handheld graphical
TDR (Time Domain Reflectometer) designed for identifying
and locating faults on power and communication cables,
given access to one end only. The Model CA7027 measures
cable length, and indicates the ­distance to cable faults and
terminations to a range of 19,000 ft or 6000m (user selectable),
on virtually any type of cable of two or more conductors. The
Model CA7027 shows a r­eflection profile of the cable under
test as an oscilloscope-like trace on a 128 x 64 pixel g
­ raphical
LCD. A movable cursor can be aligned with points on the trace;
the ­distances displayed will a
­ utomatically update to the cursor
position.
►Dead band less than 9 feet
►Selectable cable impedance
(25Ω, 50Ω, 75Ω, 100Ω)
►Over-voltage protection up to 250V
►Adjustable cursor assists in locating
faults and termination
►Built-in tone generator for tracing and
locating cables
►Auto-Ranging scale
►Large high-visibility b
­ lue e
­ lectroluminescent
­backlit display
APPLICATIONS
►Determine length of cable runs
►Find cable faults and the distance to them
►Determine degradation of cables due
to moisture and other contaminants
►Trace and identify cables
►Determine telephone cable connections and
the length to them
The Model CA7027 has a selectable impedance facility allowing
it to be matched to the cable under test. This automatically
eliminates the transmission pulse from the display, enabling
easier identification of short range faults and terminations.
The Velocity of Propagation (Vp) is adjustable between 0 and
99% enabling accurate calibration to the cable under test.
The Model CA7027 incorporates an oscillating tone generator
that is detectable with a standard tone receiver (see page 11),
for use in the t­racing and ­identification of cables.

The Wire Mapper Pro Model CA7028 is a handheld structured
cable mapping and troubleshooting tester designed for use
on UTP, STP, FTP and SSTP cabling equipped with RJ-45
connectors and wired to either TIA 568A/B (ISO 11801 and
EN 50137), USOC or ISDN s­ pecifications. It detects open
­circuit pairs, shorts, crossed wires, crossed pairs, reversed
pairs, split pairs and shield faults.
In the event of opens and shorts, the Model CA7028 uses
TDR ­technology to ­indicate if the fault is at the near end or
the remote end of the cable, or if it is somewhere in between.
It will then indicate the d
­ istance to the fault. This feature is a
real time saver.
The Model CA7028 has the ability to measure and indicate
the length of the cable under test, using a Velocity of
Propagation (Vp) set by the user, from a built-in library or
manually. It will measure and report the length of all four pairs
of wires in the cable under test. It also g
­ enerates an audible
tone that is t­ransmitted into all four pairs on the cable under
test. This can be used for cable t­racing and identification in
conjunction with a tone receiver (see page 11).

Model TR03
The Tone Receiver/Cable Tracer Model TR03 is a small,
handheld t­racer that will aid in the i­dentification of tone carrying
wires without piercing their ­insulation. It has a self-contained
amplifier and a rugged, moisture resistant mylar cone speaker.
When used in conjunction with the tone transmitter ­function of the
Models CA7024, CA7027 or CA7028, wire tracing and locating is
quick and efficient.
One button turns the unit On and, while it is depressed, activates
the receiver. A volume control allows you to set the speaker
loudness to a desirable level. An audio output jack facilitates
the use of an optional, commercially available ear piece which
inhibits the Model TR03’s i­nternal s­ peaker. This provides quiet
operation in office environments while a
­ llowing the operator to
hear the signal clearly.
