Trilithic introduced its Dual Mode operation for its Model Three signal level meter at Cable-Tec Expo last week. Using the company’s ToolBox companion software, any supervisor can now configure their technicians’ Model Three by selecting the Locked or Unlocked mode to customize testing in the field. In the Locked mode, a technician can choose from four predefined Install tests: Level, Tilt, Scan and Ingress. After completing the selected test, a simple Pass/Fail indication is displayed, and a record of the test is filed with the result and the test parameters that were pre-configured in ToolBox. In the Unlocked mode, a technician will have the option of selecting from Install mode or Service mode while the meter is booting. By selecting Service mode, the technician will have access to the full range of testing capabilities.
