The latest version of the popular ProfiTrace software incorporates the useful feature of cable length measurement. The feature works on networks which do not have an active master, so is perfect for checking the installed segment length after installation and before final commissioning.

The method used is based on sending pulses down the cable with a termination switched of at the far end. Measurement of the time to receive the reflection back from the open end provides an accurate measurement of the segment cable length. Allowance can be made for the number of connectors uses and the number of devices that are connected.

The latest version of ProfiTrace (V2.9.6) can be downloaded from the PROCENTEC web site.
