U.S. Navy Selects Mohr CT100 TDR to Replace Tektronix(R) 1502C

$7.42 Million Contract Over a Five-Year Period

Mohr and Associates (Mohr), a supplier of electronic test and measurement instrumentation, announced it has won a contract award from the U.S. Navy to supply high-resolution metallic Time-Domain Reflectometer (TDR) cable testers with companion TDR waveform analysis software. The $7.42 million contract has a Best Estimated Quantity (BEQ) of 500 units over a five-year period.

The Naval Inventory Control Point (NAVICP), the primary equipment purchasing agent for the Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP), has selected the CT100 TDR and bundled CT Viewer(TM) software for its General Purpose Electronic Test Equipment (GPETE) program. The CT100 will be used to support a variety of Navy shipboard, submarine, shore, and Marine Corps applications, replacing the functionality of the discontinued Tektronix(R) 1502C high-resolution TDR.

"The CT100 combines exceptional TDR performance and rugged portability, making it an ideal replacement for the 1502C TDR. This is a very useful tool for maintenance of modern microwave/RF and digital cable systems," said Charles Mohr, Principal Engineer. "We are pleased by this award and look forward to helping support Navy fleet operations worldwide."

About CT100 Series TDRs

The CT100 and CT100HF are the industry's highest-resolution portable TDR instruments and are designed to accurately characterize microwave/RF and digital cables and interconnects. An array of built-in software tools simplify common measurements such as cable length, local impedance, and return loss, and speed detection of subtle cable faults, including minor conductor or insulation damage, water ingress, and loosened, corroded, or poor-quality interconnects. The instruments let the operator save frequently-used test configurations to minimize setup time, and can store thousands of waveforms for later analysis or historical comparison.

CT100 Series TDRs feature horizontal cursor resolution of 0.003 in. (75 microns) and system risetimes as low as 60 ps (20-80%, CT100HF). The instruments are uniquely able to capture transient faults at up to 500 waveforms per second. CT100 Series TDRs weigh approximately 5 lbs. (2.3 kg) and feature bright color screens, USB and 10/100 Ethernet connectivity, and support for USB peripherals including keyboards and barcode readers.

About CT Viewer Software

CT100 Series TDRs come bundled with CT Viewer, full-featured TDR waveform analysis software designed for Microsoft(R) Windows(R) XP/Vista/7. CT Viewer lets the operator analyze and compare stored TDR waveforms, capture real-time video from CT100 Series TDRs at up to 500 waveforms per second, and remotely control CT100 Series TDRs over a LAN/WAN or the Internet. The software uses Microsoft(R) SQL Server(R) for reliable data storage.
