Test data when you want it, where you want it

Using the free IDEAL AnyWARE app, field technicians can share test data with colleagues or customers without leaving the jobsite, resulting in greater collaboration, more on-time job completions and reduced costs.

New troubleshooting features that save time and money

Should a cable prove to be faulty, troubleshooting is easy with the introduction of Time Domain Return Loss (TDRL) and Time Domain Near End Cross Talk (TDNEXT) measurements.
To pinpoint fibre cabling faults every FiberTEK III adapter includes a built-in visible light source to help you visually pinpoint faults and locate fibre ports. These additional features help locate hidden connections, splices and cable faults and can save many hours previously spent troubleshooting problems on the job.
New permanent link (PL) adapter saves money

New PL adapters reduce down time and lower maintenance costs with field replaceable RJ45 contacts that eliminate the need to replace the complete adapters. New PL adapters feature centred connectors to ensure compatibility with all brands of Cat6A/Class EA cabling solutions. The PL adapters use high performance, ultraflexible cable that allows them to be used in confined spaces without damaging the PL adapter or the outlet being tested.

Modular solution to reduce capital costs

For many cable installers there is pressure to reduce capital equipment costs. The LanTEK III Network Cable Certifier and FiberTEK III Optical Modules uniquely offer a pick and mix solution of components, therefore you only pay for what you need. This includes a wide range of test modules, accessories and CAREPLANs to satisfy your specific requirements.

SignalTEK CT Network Data Cable Tester

If you install or maintain data cabling, SignalTEK CT allows you to generate PDF test reports that prove installed links run at Gigabit Ethernet transmission rates.

 

Signaltek CTSignalTek CT

 

For installers, this means having a cost-effective way to demonstrate that the copper cabling was installed correctly and is capable of supporting Ethernet applications. By proving real world performance, SignalTEK CT confirms a professional job – reducing the risk of call backs. SignalTEK CT also gives network owners the assurance that installed cabling will support bandwidth hungry services like VoIP, IP CCTV and video streaming following moves, adds and changes.

 

Fast & Flexible

  • Fast Autotest provides proof of network performance in seconds
  • USB port enables rapid transfer of test results to memory stick
  • Support for shielded and unshielded twisted pair cable including Cat 5e, Cat 6, Cat 6A and Cat 7 (TIA 568A and 568B wiring schemes)
  • Stores up to 5000 tests to accommodate even the largest jobs
  • Ability to identify and trace cables with a compatible amplifier probe (62-164)

 

Intuitive

 

  • Automatic generation of PDF format test reports makes documentation effortlessSignalTek CT
  • User-friendly menu structure for trouble-free operation and minimal training
  • Simple cable naming and job creation enhances on-site productivity

 

Dependable

 

  • Tests against IEEE802.3ab to assure cable performance against a recognised international  standard
  • Field replaceable RJ45 contacts eliminate downtime from worn or damaged connectors
  • Rugged design provides protection against knocks in the field.
  • No requirement for annual calibration reducing cost of ownership

 

 

 

 

 

Test Reporting

 

SignalTEK CT automatically generates test reports in PDF format. Reports can be uploaded to a removable USB memory stick for later PC import.

The summary page of each report can be customised to include logo, company and operator details.

The summary provides an overview for each link tested including date and time of test, the overall result of the wiremap and data tests, the Ethernet rates that the cable can support, and the individual and total cable lengths.

Detailed information relating to each tested link is reported on subsequent pages. This includes a graphical image of the wiremap, pass/fail information, length per pair, frame errors and data rate.
