Hipotronics TDR1130A Time Domain ReflectometerCable TV installations are prone to failures because of repeated tapping and constant exposure to the elements. Service interruptions caused by faulty cable installations can cause customer dissatisfaction. Investing in a fault locator can help detect problems and restore service quickly.

Tools used in cable fault locating, like time domain reflectometers(TDRs) are essential tools in cable repairs because they shorten troubleshooting time. This means you can restore service quicker, keeping your subscribers satisfied.

TDRs work by sending a pulse and if they encounter a problem, the pulse returns to the transmitter. The time it takes to return determines the location of the problem.
