Mountian ME-1005 Highlights
The Mountain Engineering & Technology ME-1005 75Ω Coaxial Cable Simulator is a highly accurate, programmable filter designed to simulate the attenuation versus frequency characteristics of the 75W coaxial cable, type WECO 728A (Belden 9231) specified by ANSI and CCITT for use in high speed communications networks in the US and around the world. This same cable is also found in office buildings and industrial complexes where it forms the backbone of PBX and LAN communication systems. By simulating almost 1500ft (453km) of coaxial cable in 45ft (13.7m) increments, the ME-1005 offers a convenient and practical method of developing and testing communications equipment intended for use in these high speed networks.
Easy to use front panel controls set the ME-1005's simulated cable length displayed in Feet, Meters, or dB of Attenuation at 4 standard frequencies (in MHz): 4.2, 17.2, 22.4, and 25.9. A 75W noise mixer signal input allows interference margin testing with S/N ratios from 9dB to 20dB in accordance with CCITT G.703 while a buffered 50W oscilloscope output simplifies viewing of individual data pulses for easy mask verification. All ME-1005 functions can be computer controlled via a standard RS-232 serial port for automated test applications.
