BER with longer cables
« on: August 15, 2018, 06:11:39 PM »
I just got a PE, while trying it out I noticed BER tests on known good Cat6a longer cables (>50m) gives a error rate that seems unreasonable at Gbit speeds. However if it is testing with a loopback isn't it effectively testing with double the cable length? I've seen others reporting errors like this. If this is the case it seems to be a limitation of the design that makes it unable to check cables longer then half their rated length?

On v29 and the latest iOS app...

Also having the same problem. Together with wrong wiremap results on longer cables.
