Leak detection and tracking

QS Navigator

Powerful, accurate,
and surprisingly simple

The QS Navigator family of products makes it easy for technicians to find and fix leaks in the field. Navigator can simultaneously detect up to three analog, QAM, and OFDM channels. Once a leak is detected QS Navigator flags the leak location on its high-resolution color display, giving the technician an accurate starting point as well as information about multi-frequency characteristics of the leak. The technician drives directly to the source of the problem better prepared for the issue at hand.

Flexible Operation

QS NavigatoR+

Easily detect and locate egress

Intuitive Interface

View activity in all three detection bands on one simple screen.

SIGNAL VIEW

See the correlator response for a different view

Map View

Once a leak is detected, QS calculates GPS coordinates and displays the leak location on a map.

Close Leaks

Quickly and easily close leaks from the device, and update the database with information on remaining level and your customized close codes.

Productivity Driven

Built to help you perform better

PERCEPTIVE: Engineered for acute sensitivity to reveal signal egress and provide complete visibility across the spectrum. Provides simultaneous detection on up to three analog, QAM, or OFDM channels.

MAP: Display a map showing exact leak location right on the detector screen.

IMPERVIOUS: Immune to multipath, making leakage detection hassle-free.

AGILE: Perform leakage detection at a relevant frequency and automatically measure LTE signal strength to prioritize repair for relevant locations while you’re at it.

ACCURATE: Mathematically determines the GPS location of the leak – no guesswork.

RELIABLE: No more of the false alarms that plague other systems. With QAM Snare Navigator you can confidently send your team to fix real problems.

SIMPLE: Intuitive design and simple user interface makes it easy to detect and locate LTE affecting egress.

INSTANT: Navigator uses time-delay information to resolve the exact GPS location of the leak source in real-time, enabling instant and accurate leakage detection.

FUTURE-PROOF: Fully OFDM compliant. QAM Snare operates in Analog, Analog tag, QAM and OFDM modes.
