Product: 860 DSPi

Company: Trilithic

Features: FDR (frequency domain reflectometer) option for the 860 DSPi Field Analyzer; designed to enable technicians to easily identify the distance to faults or various passive devices within the home network; similar to a TDR in function; can work through in-line splitters and other frequency-limited devices; works by transmitting a sweep into the network and analyzing the compound reflected wave; the test provides measurement of return loss at various connections within the network, including the distance to each connection; eliminates the need for a technician to carry a separate TDR for troubleshooting cable faults within the home network; the option can be added to any 860 DSPi in the field that is equipped with either a VP-1 (Return Tester RSVP Option) or an SR-1 (Return Sweep Receiver Option) by updating the firmware and purchasing an activation key code; units without one of these options must be returned to the factory for the upgrade.
