For comprehensive testing of your cable, this is where you will need a high-end cable tester equipment. You will need to understand the exact type of test that you want to do on your assembled cable.

  1. Wire connection of the cable.
  2. Resistivity and conductance of the copper wire. (maximum current)
  3. Insulation of the jacket around the copper wire. (maximum voltage, HiPot test)
  4. Cable capacitance between the copper wires.
  5. Data speed bandwidth of the cable.
  6. Cable impedance
  7. Electrical characteristic testing (capacitors, diodes, or resistors detection)
  8. Mechanical physical testing (elasticity, bend-ability)
