How to measure cable characteristics

    Hi,

    I have an ARINC 429 circuit that is unreliable, I have been told the
    transmitter circuits need to see a cable with max. capacitance of
    50pf, the cable is of shielded twisted pair type. How do I measure the
    capacitance of my cable and which value do I want? Is it the
    core-to-core or core-to-shield value? Is it as simple as disconnecting
    the transmitter and connecting a multimeter to the system?

    Cheers
