Seeker D Lite

In-Home Leakage Detector

The Seeker D Lite is a dual-mode and dual-frequency in-home leakage detector that accurately monitors leakage in all digital systems or in mixed digital and analog systems. The Seeker D Lite works with both the CT-4 Channel Tagger in the headend or the Seeker D Lite Source Transmitter in the field.

Easily find & fix the smallest, hardest to find sources of ingress into your plant

Mitigation of signal leakage within the subscriber premise is essential for the successful operation of services both inside and outside of the coaxial cable network. This combined with a new requirement to simultaneously monitor for signal leakage in both the aeronautical and LTE bands, makes it even more important to thoroughly evaluate the potential for interference within the subscriber premises.

Trilithic has developed a new system for leakage find and fix which will comprehensively test the Aeronautical and LTE bands in fully digital, analog, and mixed cable systems. The new Seeker D Lite™ system provides installers and repair techs with two different types of tools for finding and fixing leakage in both the Aeronautical and LTE bands.

In-Home Leakage Detector

The new Seeker D Lite™ is a tough, convenient, and flexible leakage test tool. The Seeker D Lite works by measuring tagged RF signals in and around a subscriber’s premises.

This leakage detector assists in installation and troubleshooting by verifying that the leakage within the subscriber premises is not great enough to contribute to the cable system’s cumulative leakage index (CLI). Leaks can also be important indicators of ingress that can hinder communication on the return band.

The Seeker D Lite works in conjunction with either the CT-4™ Channel Tagger in the headend or the Seeker D Lite Source Transmitter at the ground block. Both devices provide an uncompromising tagging solution for active analog or digital systems and can be used to identify and locate all RF leaks in both the Aeronautical and LTE bands.

Advanced, Compact Design

The Seeker D Lite is equipped with a built in antenna that provides technicians the ability to find even the smallest of leaks while easily moving throughout a home. Additionally, an easy-to-read backlit display provides a simultaneous dual-view of both bands making it even easier to locate leaks when walking through the home.

All of these features combined with a compact design and rugged carrying case make the Seeker D Lite the go-to leakage detector for every technician.

Advanced In-Home Shielding Integrity Testing

  • Dual-Mode & Dual-Frequency In-Home Leakage Detector that Accurately Monitors Leakage in All Digital Systems or Mixed Digital and Analog Systems)
  • Provides a Cost Effective Solution for In- Home Leakage Detection by using Existing CT-4 Channel Taggers Installed in the Headend or by using the Seeker D Lite Source Transmitter
  • When Used with the Seeker D Lite Source Transmitter at the Ground Block, the Seeker D Lite Provides an Industry Leading Sensitivity of 0.1 mV/m for Finding the Smallest of Leaks
  • Detects Leaks at a Low Enough Level to Validate that Transmissions from Cellular Devices in the Home do not Enter the Cable Plant and Cause Potentially Harmful Interference)

Rack Mounted (1U) unit that is used as a system with the Seeker D Digital Leakage Detector to detect leaks in the Aeronautical and LTE frequency bands and eliminates all 'false alarm' triggers. The CT-4 Provides proprietary dual CW carriers at two locations to give the Seeker D Leakage Detector its ability to detect leaks in the Aeronautical Frequency Band (136 to 139 MHz) and LTE Frequency Band (610.5 to 615 MHz). The CT-4 eliminates the risk of affecting any adjacent digital channels by injecting an adjustable signal from 10 to 30 dBmV, targeting approximately 30 dB below the chosen digital carriers. It also features the functions of earlier CT-2/CT-3 Channel Taggers to work in conjunction with existing Seeker GPS system components. Only one CT-4 is needed per head-end. The complete kit includes: CT-4 Digital Channel Tagger with built-in 120/240 VAC power supply and AC power cable or -48VDC input. REQUIRES SEEKER SETUP PC SOFTWARE FOR FIRMWARE UPDATES.
