Hitron’s DSS-01 Coax Cable Tester Gives Homeowners an Easy Way to Check Their Coax Outlets


Low-cost coax signal tester is now available for purchase on Amazon; enables broadband subscribers and cable installers to easily and instantly verify the cable Internet signal at any coax outlet

Centennial, CO – April 27, 2021 – Hitron Technologies, the fastest growing DOCSIS customer premise equipment (CPE) manufacturer in North America, today announced that its DSS-01 DOCSIS Signal Sensor is available for purchase on Amazon. This low-cost diagnostic tool detects the presence of a valid cable Internet signal at a coax outlet, making it an ideal tool for homeowners moving or replacing their cable modem, as well as cable installers and field technicians.

Until now, the only way to test if there is signal at the coax outlet is either by plugging in a cable modem or by using an expensive technician meter. That means that when a homeowner plugs in the cable modem and it doesn’t come online, they have limited troubleshooting options beyond calling tech support or scheduling a professional installation.


Users simply need to plug the DSS-01 into a coaxial outlet in the home and press the button. In less than ten seconds, the LEDs indicate whether the outlet is receiving a valid cable Internet signal or not; it’s as easy as “green is good” and “red is bad”. The DSS-01 can be easily moved from outlet to outlet and provides rapid results, thus encouraging users to check the signal at every coax outlet in the home.


More and more homeowners are choosing to purchase a third-party cable modem or cable modem router to avoid monthly rental fees and take advantage of the latest technology like WiFi 6. The DSS-01 Coax Cable Tester is the ideal companion to streamline self-installations. It gives users visibility into what’s happening at each coax outlet in the home: if there’s a problem, they’ll know whether the issue is with the cable modem or the coax outlet, and if there’s a different outlet in their home that works,” said Greg Fisher, President at Hitron Americas.


The low cost and simplicity of the DSS-01 can make it an ideal tool for homeowners and cable installers. They can test all coaxial outlets at the home to find the best location for the modem.

The DSS-01 is available now for $24.99 on Amazon.
