stage two copper testing stage two copper testing linesclan (Programmer) (OP) 10 Sep 02 10:30 Hi allDoes anyone know where I could recieve training on the above.ThanksLinesclan RE: stage two copper testing daronwilson (Vendor) 11 Sep 02 01:01 I guess I would first have to know exactly what it means. Where did you get information regarding different stages of testing? It is only my opinion, based on my experience and education...I am always willing to learn, educate me!Daron J. Wilson, RCDDdaron.firstname.lastname@example.org RE: stage two copper testing linesclan (Programmer) (OP) 12 Sep 02 11:06 Hi daronI am not sure, all I know is that this is part of a acceptance test for long distance copper communication cables used by the ministry of transport. Loaded pairs etc.ThanksDarren RE: stage two copper testing wires (TechnicalUser) 12 Sep 02 11:40 Then I would guess "stage two copper testing" is related to qualifing a line for a DSL type service. I doubt that it really has anything to do with "long distance" since long distance service is usually run on fiber or microwave.That sort of testing is usually (in my area) handled by the telephone company which is where you would receive the training. There were some helpful PDF's on tempo.textron.com showing how to use their TelScout line of TDRs to "clean up" pairs for data service. Their site has been "improved" and I cannot find anything for you there. However you could look around or call them for info. They have always been helpful to me in the past (even though I bought my TS90 off eBay).A manufacturer of the appropriate testing equipment (such as Tempo) would be another avenue for training.Hopefully this is pertinent to your question.
