The unique features and new technology used in the TDR1170 Time Domain
Reflectometer makes it the most flexible and easiest to use cable fault
locator accessory. The TDR 1170 features an automatic configuration,
which can be modified as necessary. All cable fault data can be stored
and retrieved at any time, ensuring time saving, consistency and
accuracy from one crew to the next.
The digital TDR1170 will locate and identify short circuit (bolted)
faults, low resistance shunt faults, open circuits, high resistance
series faults, wet sections, splices, transformers, cable transitions,
and concentric neutral corrosion. To locate high resistance,
intermittent and flashover faults, the TDR 1170 is designed to measure
in the digital arc reflection, current impulse, voltage decay, and all
differential fault locating modes. The selection of fault location
method allows the operator to select the method that they are most
familiar with or the method that is most appropriate for the type of
cable and type of fault that is encountered.
