The basic components of each leakage detection system are detectors and meters. The detector/meter for CATV networks is AMS2010 HFC. The device has been developed by people who have been, by themselves, detecting leakage sources in CATV networks for many years. A compromise has been reached among the meter dimensions, weight and measurement/detection accuracy. The meter has very good sensitivity. The unit is compatible with the EN 50083-8 standard as well as with the FCC standards related to the leakage control.
