5S01 - Tempo Sidekick T&Nd Twisted Pair MultiTester

Performs multiple diagnostic tests with only one instrument!


Tempo Sidekick T&Nd Twisted Pair MultiTester

The Sidekick T&Nd is a multifunction test set that will improve any
technician’s testing and trouble shooting capabilities on twisted pair.
It uses digital technology to combine VOM and loop current tests,
longitudinal balance (Stress Test), transmission and noise, open locator,
and load coil detection into one easy-to-use test set.  The test
functions can be selected and used individually, or run automatically by
using the innovative Autotest.  Autotest can perform 22 consecutive
individual diagnostic tests and displays a test summary when completed.
Test results are displayed on a 4 line, 20 character, digital LCD display.
This eliminates meter interpretation errors and provides the user with a
clear numerical readout.

Sidekick T&Nd also includes Tempo’s patented Stress Test and Leakage
Test. Stress Test measures the audible noise produced on a pair when
it is “stressed” as a result of a 90 dBrnC longitudinal excitation.  The
Stress Test determines the capacitive and series resistance balance
characteristics of a twisted pair at any point along the pair.  It can
detect imbalances that other test sets miss and is highly effective in
identifying series resistance opens (high joints).  The Leakage Test
detects intermittent resistance faults that do not appear under normal
VOM tests. When a faulted pair is taken out of service, galvanic action
forms an insulating oxide layer over the fault(s). When returned to
service, such pairs develop “noisy static” in a relatively short period of
time.  The Leakage Test uses 135 Volts to “punch through” the oxide
layer and reveal the fault.
