Cable Testing

Coaxial cable testing to the CAI Certification Scheme.

RN Electronics has been appointed by the CAI to test Digital and Satellite TV coaxial cables in accordance with the CAI Certification Scheme.

This industry benchmarking scheme lays down the minimum standards of technical performance of coaxial cables based on the specific requirements for satisfactory reception and network distribution of signals from terrestrial or satellite transmissions.

RN Electronics perform a series of electrical and mechanical tests on the sample cables to demonstrate compliance with one of seven cable specifications.

RN Electronics can also verify ongoing batch quality by conducting tests either on site or in our laboratory.

For further information on cable testing or to arrange a cable test please contact our cable testing manager.
