Trilithic has a new test suite option for its 860 DSPi Field Analyzer. The LD-1 Linear Distortion Suite enables technicians to track down and efficiently troubleshoot linear distortions that can degrade the digital signals running on modern cable networks.

The LD-1 Suite solves many of the common issues technicians often face when encountering linear distortion-related problems, such as manually looking for bad passives, split cables and loose or corroded hardware. Paired with the Frequency Domain Reflectometer (FDR), this new find-and-fix option determines the distance to all types of cable faults that cause microreflections and in-channel linear distortions. Using this test suite, technicians can identify and analyze the distortions, pinpoint the location of the defect causing the problem, and restore two-way service immediately.

The LD-1 Linear Distortion Suite is available to install on all current 860 DSPi devices with a DOCSIS 2 or DOCSIS 3 8×4 modem.
