The LST-1700 Home Wiring Test Kit (HWTK) helps identify and locate potential problems with home wiring prior to activating new advanced digital services. The Acterna CLI-1750, used in conjunction with the Model LST-1700 Signal Transmitter, helps identify and locate potential problems with the distribution network and home wiring prior to activating these new services. The Wavetek / Acterna CLI-1750 and Acterna / JDSU LST-1700 are compact home wiring testers capable of measuring not only routine power levels, but also digital average power, leakage, frequency domain reflectometry (FDR), and sweep, which can be useful for a wide range of trouble shooting from installation to characterizing existing wire. The instruments superior user interface and performance can reduce the installation time and repair cost.

Viavi Solutions LST-1700 Applications
  • Signal levels are checked to verify proper levels arriving at the tap and at the house.
  • Frequency response is measured to verify proper losses and to uncover any roll-off or sharp changes in response.
  • Frequency Domain Reflectometry test (FDR) reveals precise location of sources of reflections and degree of severity.
  • Reverse Ingress Scan test shows the presence of noise, or ingress, generated in the house that hampers reverse communication for all customers sharing the node.
  • Leakage test finds potential points of ingress, as the source may not be in operation while the installer is at the house.
