Measuring Distance Using TDR

PUBLISHED: October 7, 2014

Distance measurement is one of the simplest and most useful applications of TDR technology. This Application Guide will show you how to do it.

Measuring distance is possible because TDR waveforms are show as a function of time. If we know the dielectric constant (K) of the material under test, the ZTDR™ software can convert time into accurate distance measurements.

This sort of thing is easier to show than to tell, so we published the App Guide as a Youtube Video. Either watch it inline below, or click to open the video.
