The unique features and new technology used in the Hipotronics TDR 1170 Time Domain Reflectometer make it the most flexible and easiest to use instrument available for advanced cable fault location. 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 savings, consistency and accuracy from one crew to the next.
The digital Hipotronics Time Domain Reflectometer 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 which they are most familiar with or the method that is most appropriate for the type of cable and type of fault that is encountered.
