TIA-1152 copper field testingField test instruments are used to test installed balanced twisted-pair cabling specified in the TIA family of structured cabling Standards.

ANSI/TIA-1152-A “Requirements for Field Test Instruments and Measurements for Balanced Twisted-Pair Cabling” was developed by the TIA TR-42.7 Copper Cabling Subcommittee and published in November, 2016. This Standard provides requirements for field test instruments, as well as measurement methods to compare field instrument  measurements against laboratory equipment measurements collected in accordance with TIA-568-C.2.

Significant changes from the previous edition include:

  • Field tester requirements have been refined
  • External references to other standards have been updated
  • Specifications for Level 2G testers to test category 8 permanent links and channels up to 2000 MHz have been added

ANSI/TIA-1152-A Content

  • Test Instruments
  • Annexes addressing Typical Measurement Accuracy of Reference Laboratory Measurement Systems, Derivation of Level 2G Source Match and Reflection Tracking Terms, and Guidance for the Applicability of Resistance and Resistance Unbalance Measurements

ANSI/TIA-1152-A Accuracy Levels

TIA-1152-A specifies requirements for four levels of field test devices based upon increased reporting and measurement accuracy:

  • Level IIe
  • Level III
  • Level IIIe
  • Level 2G
