Universal Line Analyser

PKI 4300Print

The PKI 4300 is used to check telephone lines, AC networks, alarm circuits and also LAN cabling. In the process, the telephone and line detector checks used and unused cables for capacitive and inductive tapping as well as metrological abnormalities. Analog or digital modulation can be detected to ensure that no audio signal is transmitted via the checked telephone and/or network lines. With the pulse localisation method, the distance from the measuring point to the tapping point can be determined. The PKI 4300 can detect the following unauthorized tapping:

Phone lines (no separation necessary!):

  • Serial connection with an impedance higher than 30 Ω.
  • Parallel connection with a current consumption higher than 0.1 mA.
  • High frequency signals on the line from 0.02 to 30 MHz minimum 10 mV.
  • Low frequency signals 20 – 20,000 Hz with a signal level higher than 10 mV.

AC line (live)

  • Observation of devices with a current consumption higher than 0.1 mA.
  • High frequency signals on the line from 0.02 to 30 MHz minimum 10 mV.
  • AC line (dead).
  • Devices connected in parallel with an impedance up to 200 MΩ.
  • Serial connections with an impedance higher than 1 Ω.
  • Capacitive devices connected in parallel with a response time longer than 100 microseconds.
  • Reactive elements with a capacitance from 100 pF or inductances higher than 10  mH.

Remaining lines (live and dead) if a reflectogram was made in advance.

  • Serial connections with an impedance higher than 1 Ω
  • Parallel connections with a capacitance higher than 5 pF.
  • Parallel branch connections of whatever length. Re-established connections (after a break or mix-up)

With the universal line analyser, you can also measure AC/DC voltages, inductances, capacitances, and resistances of the checked lines. Audio signals can be directly picked up using the delivered headphones. A graphical representation of all measured results is shown on the display. Even Lissajous figures are possible without problems. All data can be stored and later be further processed on the PC via the USB interface. Connection to the lines to be measured is realised by means of the various adapters (banana plug, western plug, various telephone connectors, various mains plugs, etc.) included in the scope of supply.
