A fault locator contains a microwave bridge network and fault locating detector network integrated into a single housing, thus allowing the simultaneous measurement of return loss and distance to fault by a single test port.
The system requires detectors for signal amplitude measurements (either absolute power or as the ratio of signal levels) and directional devices such as autotesters or microwave bridges for return loss.
