Seeker GPS with MCA II

Seeker - MCA III

Analog Leakage Management System

Seeker with MCA III is a GPS-based leakage management and CATV leak detection system for documentation and troubleshooting.

Powerful, flexible, convenient and very cost-effective — the Seeker GPS with MCA III System from Trilithic sets an entirely new standard for GPS leakage management.

  • High-performance, GPS-based leakage management system; ideal for drive-outs, leak documentation and troubleshooting
  • Very cost-effective deployment throughout entire fleet
  • Maximum efficiency achievable through totally automatic operation
  • Leakage record upload via Cellular, WiFi, Ethernet, or USB
  • Seeker easily removed from mobile mount for find & fix
  • Real-time leakage detection using EDN

Trilithic’s Seeker with MCA III leakage management system offers high-performance GPS leakage detection and documentation at a competitive price.  No investment for special drive-out vehicles is required, and every truck in the operator’s fleet can identify leakage outbreaks with GPS precision.

Automatic Leak Recording

While driving to a location or to work, the technician leaves the Seeker in the mobile mount, where it’s connected to vehicle power, an antenna, and a GPS receiver.  The system automatically monitors leakage outbreaks and records the data with a time/date stamp and the leak’s GPS location.

Early Detection Notifications

When a set threshold level within the Seeker has been surpassed, Trilithic’s Leakage Analysis Workshop™(LAW) will email an EDN (Early Detection Notification) to insure that large leaks will be identified immediately. This automatic process helps keep the technician from being distracted while driving or working.  Detecting and finding locations of EDNs is enhanced by hardware quadrangulation which is only available in the MCA III.

Convenient Uploading

Uploading data records to a server can be fully automated, occurring whenever the vehicle enters a home location or via an operator-controlled Wi-Fi hotspot.

GPS Component Options

The operator has several options for providing the GPS receiver/antenna to link with the Seeker GPS system.  If there is no existing unit, one can be obtained from Trilithic.  If the vehicle is already equipped with a fleet management system using a GPS receiver, in many cases the Seeker GPS system can make use of it.

Powerful, flexible, convenient, and very cost-effective; the Seeker GPS system from Trilithic sets an entirely new standard for GPS leakage management.

Next Generation Mobile Support

The Seeker MCA III offers high-performance GPS location recording and documentation when monitoring only the aeronautical bands with existing Seeker leakage detectors or monitoring both the aeronautical and LTE bands with the new Seeker D leakage detector. This device also allows you to daisy chain the mobile mounts of the Seeker and Seeker D units together in order to log data from multiple units mounted in the same vehicle.

The Seeker Lite² is a Cable TV (catv) leakage detector for cable installations in the field.

  • Numerical Measurement Display
  • Sensitive, Stable Measurements
  • Directional for Leak Location
  • Stable, repeatable readings and built in directional antenna simplify leak location.
  • "Cruise Mode" offers continuous surveillance for long periods at reduced battery current.
  • Tough, simple to use and very cost-effective, the Seeker Lite² is the ideal leakage measurement instrument for insuring leakage -and ingress- free installations, every time.
Seeker Lite² - Installation Leakage Detector

The new Trilithic Seeker Lite² Leakage Detector is specifically designed for efficient subscriber installations, displaying numerical measurements of leaks on up to ten user selectable presets and emitting a tone proportional to leak strength.

Digital Channel Tagger
Request a Quote

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.
