Fluke Networks DTX-1800 CableAnalyzer certifies copper cabling networks at speeds up to 10 gigabits and bandwidths up to 900MHz with Level IV accuracy. The meter performs a Class F autotest in less than 25 seconds and a Category 6 autotest in 9 seconds. Testing of shielded and unshielded twisted pair LAN cabling (STP, FTP, SSTP, and UTP) can be completed with the included Category 6A/Class EA permanent link adapters, or Category 6A/Class EA channel adapters. The DTX module cavity accepts additional test modules as network testing needs and requirements change, including fiber, OTDR (optical time-domain reflectometer), network service, and alien crosstalk modules. The units support coaxial adapters, custom limits,
and talk between operators at the main and remote units (headphones included). The permanent link adapter provides repeatable accuracy and Category 5e, Category 6, and Category 6A interoperability. Certification tests are performed to TIA, ISO/IEC, EN, ANSI, and IEEE standards. The user-selected test standard automatically determines the test parameters and frequency range for the performed tests. Autotests can be started from the main or remote unit. The fiber autotest performs a dual-fiber, dual-wavelength certification test. The backlit, color, LCD display has a diagonal measurement of 3.7"/9.4cm and a resolution of 240 x 320 pixels (W x H). Copper and fiber testers are used by network technicians to troubleshoot, maintain, and optimize performance of copper and fiber optic cabling in Ethernet networks.
The DSX CableAnalyzer copper test solution enables testing and certification of twisted pair cabling for up to 10 Gigabit Ethernet deployments and will handle any cabling system whether it is a Cat 5e, 6, 6A or Class FA. Certifying a cable is one part of a process that starts with system design and ends with system acceptance. The faster that process goes, the more profitable you will be. Unfortunately, there are a lot of things that slow the process down - setting up the tester incorrectly, testing to the wrong limits, waiting for skilled technicians to analyze and troubleshoot failures, misinterpretation of results, and producing test reports that customers can not understand.
As part of the Versiv cabling certification product family, the DSX CableAnalyzer provides accurate, error-free certification. In the installation business there are multiple teams, varying media types and multiple testing requirements. The difference between profitability is just a few percentage points. The DSX certifies copper cabling, complies with all standards including Level V accuracy, making jobs easier to manage, and getting to system acceptance faster. It not just for the expert technicians and Project Managers. Individuals of various skill levels can improve the set-up, operation, test reporting, and simultaneously manage diverse projects.
