of the 860 DSPi can be up to five times
longer than that of other instruments.
The 860 DSPi works with Guardian
System II™ reverse path monitoring
equipment, and can be equipped with
options to provide an extensive range
of reverse path test capabilities. With
the SpeedSweep™ FS-1 option, the
860 DSPi receives forward sweep from
the 8300 FST™; with the SR-1 option,
it also generates reverse sweep to be
received by the 9581 SST™ and displayed on the 860’s easy-to-read LCD

Improved productivity with workforce management
The 860 DSPi integrates with Trilithic’s TDM™ test data
management server package to enable managers and
others to configure and manage analyzer inventory, store
measurement data, generate reports and create custom
database queries.
The integrated system lets cable operators track tech
performance, control the quality of installations and – via a
connection to the company billing system – even develop
and monitor productivity improvement metrics.
860 DSP Analyzer:
A Cost-Effective Alternative.
Part of the 860 family, the 860 DSP is for applications that do
not require a modem-equipped meter. It performs physical
measurements only. For technicians not required to maintain
DOCSIS services, the 860 DSP is a cost-effective alternative.
I-Stop™ Ingress Test Probe (P/N 2010838001)
I/O-15 Coaxial Precision Test Cable (P/N 2071527048)
The I-Stop probe contains a
patented circuit that, when used
with a reverse path monitoring
system, confirms the location
of an ingress source down to the nearest tap. Eliminates
the need to remove reverse pads, tap bodies, or diplexers
for troubleshooting. Pressing the button on the side of the
probe causes a 4 to 6 dB reduction in the ingress seen
by the return monitoring system, confirming this leg of the
distribution system contains the ingress source. The I-Stop
probe has little or no visible effect on forward video signals.
The I/O-15 is a precision test cable
suitable for field and head end test
equipment. The small-diameter
(0.16”) allows the cable to be conveniently stored in a pocket or in
the instrument’s bag. The I/O-15 exhibits a loss of only 0.7
dB at 1 GHz, and lab quality materials and machined female
F-type connectors insure long service life. A lab-quality
push-on adaptor is included with each cable.
TLB-60 Return Measurements Filter (P/N 2011066000)
CC-23 Utility Bag (P/N 2131221000)
The TLB-60 60 MHz low-pass
filter is useful when searching for
common path distortions or other
low-level disturbances, eliminating
overload from forward channels present at the test port. The
TLB-60 can extend the measurement range of a spectrum
analyzer or field signal analyzer by as much as 20 dB.
