Save Time and Effort Prelocating Cable Faults with the Hipotronics TDR1130

  • Uncategorized

Troubleshooting buried cables can take a lot of time and effort. Using a thumper to prelocate a fault buried under concrete may not be a good idea. If you need a quick and easy way of prelocating cable defects, you might want to consider using a time domain reflectometer. This diagnostic tool allows you to determine the exact location quickly and without digging. It is also easier to use because you do not need to poke the ground with probes or use additional tools like directional acoustic detectors.


The Hipotronics TDR1130 is a reliable and accurate fault locator that can find problems up to 1,000,000 feet. It has an adjustable amplitude pulse of 25 to 50 Volts and a pulse duration of 1.28 μs to 0.66 ms. Its input can take voltages as high as 480 Volts and offers a high sampling rate of 100 MHz. The high sampling rate allows it to locate faults with an accuracy of 2.5 feet. The TDR1130
cable fault locator also has an internal memory storage so you can store results up to 16 sets.
