T3 Innovation has announced that the new Coax Clarifier™ layout/fault finder is now available.
“T3 Innovation’s new Coax Clarifier system quality tester is designed to help the field technician qualify and quantify ‘Dark’ coax systems,” explained Ron Vogel, T3 Innovation CEO. “Dark unpowered coax systems give no clue as to their design, condition, or configuration. The Coax Clarifier will determine individual run quality as well as to determine the ability of the overall system’s capability to deliver good quality video at both standard and high definition levels.”
Made in the USA, an easy-to-read large backlit LCD shows loss levels on each coax cable run and displays a bar graph of quality for each. Detecting and testing splitters for quality, shorts/opens, etc. is also done on each test. Finally, the Coax Clarifier uses inexpensive wiremap remotes that allow the technician to singlehandedly “map” an entire system easily and quickly. Cable length measurements, signal quality measurements, and wiremapping all in one compact, rugged tester.
“In addition, separate wire mapping sets allows a technician to map out the entire coax system and measure the quality and characterization of the overall network for carrying services, such as high grade video, surveillance data, and HD programming,” Vogel added. “It also has the ability to identify the testing remotes through splitters, showing the end location of multiple runs off of installed splitters.”
