Seeker Lite Leakage Detector

The Seeker Lite²™ is a tough, convenient and flexible leakage test tool. It assists in subscriber installs by verifying that leakage in the house is not great enough to contribute to the cable system’s cumulative leakage index (CLI). Leaks can also be important sources of ingress that can hinder communication on the return band. The Seeker Lite² can also be used to find leaks during troubleshooting. Seeker Lite² works by measuring ambient RF leakage in and around a subscriber’s premises and can be used to identify and locate all RF leaks greater than 10 µV/m.

TDR 2040 Cable Fault Locator

The TDR 2040 provides installation technicians and anyone involved in the installation or maintenance of metallic cables with the capability to quickly find faults in cables from a distance of 0 to 2500 feet. The evaluation is performed by simply selecting the appropriate cable type from a pre-stored library, attaching the cable connector (or attaching test leads to the two conductors of the cable), and pressing a single button to display the distance to the open or short. Voltage is continuously measured and displayed to warn the operator of a potentially dangerous condition. The TDR 2040 will also inject one of multiple tones into the cable for tracing cables in walls or ceilings, with any standard probe.
