How to test copper lines
with ARGUS!
Sync/Line Qualification
Sync/LQ-Slave
Sync/LQ-Master
DSLAM
MODEM
Synchronization with the DSLAM and OK/FAIL evaluation of the bit rate. If there ist no remote
end, use the Line qualification* to estimate the bit rate in master/slave mode.
Line Scope
Active Probe II
DSLAM
MODEM
Real-time Line Monitoring up to 30 MHz in frequency and time domain e. g. for detecting
handshake tones, noise, cross talk or temporary interference. Use the Active Probe and switch
between symmetrical and asymmetrical mode to hide the useful signal so that only the noise is
displayed.
TDR
DSLAM
MODEM
Time-Domain Reflectometer for measuring loop length and locating wiring issues like bridged
taps, loose contacts or shorts. Adapt the impedance* of the TDR to the impedance of the line or
use preconfigurable wire type profiles with a preset VoP.
Copper Box
DSLAM
Copper Box
MODEM
The ARGUS Copper Box supports voltage (AC/DC), current, loop and isolation resistance as well
as capacitance measurements. Connect the Copper Box to the ARGUS USB port and easily detect
foreign voltages, opens, shorts, earth faults between Tip, Ring and Ground.
Line Symmetry
DSLAM
MODEM
Check the capacitive balance of the line using the Copper Box capacitance measurement or its symmetry check at a frequency of 1 MHz. Use the wideband line symmetry test to analyze the longitudinal
balance at every tone of the DSL frequency spectrum (30 MHz).*
