The 1270A provides a unique package to the field engineer who needs to find faults on CATV and telecom cables for both outside plant and domestic applications. It is 'housed' in a rugged package with full PC connectivity and Riserbond ease of use. It is the solution for network provisioning. It is intuitive and easy to use and meets the users needs both in performance and in use. It has advanced features such as a sub-ns pulse, CATV and telecom inputs for VoIP applications and auto fault find. It is housed in a field proven rugged and robust enclosure. The 1270A provides the complete fault finding solution for the field engineer.

Key Features

  • Combined coax and telco TDR.
  • Rugged and robust.
  • Easy to use.
  • PC Connectivity.
  • Range Plus.
  • Super Store.
  • Auto fault find.
  • DBRL


  • Direct connections from both coax andtwisted pair - Superior fault location in avariety of industries and applications. The1270A will directly test coaxial cable andtwisted pair cable by using front panelconnections.
  • RANGE-PLUS - Two-button operation thatallows the operator to quickly scan the cableunder test while automatically steppingthrough a specific pulse width, vertical gain,and cable length.
  • 2-Line Input - Connect two twisted paircables simultaneously for comparison.
  • Sub-nanosecond Pulse Width - Pinpointminor faults which interrupt digital servicesand cause signal loss, ingress, and egress.
  • Intermittent Fault Detection (IFD) - Monitorand locate hard-to-find intermittent faultsusing the IFD mode.
  • Dual Independent Cursors - Measurebetween any two points on the waveform.
  • SUPER-STORE Waveform Data Storage -Helps reduce downtime in a system. Simplyconnect the TDR, press “store”, and have thesystem back up and running within minutes.Analyze the waveform later.
  • WAVE-VIEW Software - Upload waveforms toyour computer. Document before acceptingnew plant, save money when comparingreplacement versus repair cost.
  • Rugged, weatherproof construction -Rugged, weatherproof casing helps keep the1270A on the job, regardless of location orclimate conditions.
  • Easy-to-use - Logical, step-by-step testingfor fault location and diagnosis is easy-to-useby all levels of expertise.
