An old favourite of Broadcast Engineers and Technicians since its invention in 1994 by LEN Founder, Clive Baty, the Cable Clone range now extends to include full 3G capability.
The Cable Clone has similar attenuation vs frequency characteristics to coax cable over the wide frequency spectrum of the serial digital signal. When installing or testing serial digital equipment it is often necessary to establish the maximum length of cable over which the signal will remain useable, or to ensure that there is sufficient margin (headroom) over a given length of cable run.
This can be done by inserting actual lengths of coaxial cable into the path. However this is a cumbersome and time consuming method, additionally requiring large and heavy drums of coax to be available.
A far more elegant and practical method is to use a set of Cable Clone units, which can be combined to simulate different lengths of coaxial cable. The Cable Clone sets are easily stored and carried round in a typical toolbox, and require no power.
The Cable Clone has established an excellent reputation for convenience and accuracy over the many years. LEN aim to maintain that standard!
