Cable system testing

GET ACCURATE MEASUREMENTS of installed structured wiring channels in the field. The OMNIScanner2 is capable of meeting tough new Category 6 permanent link and channel measurement requirements. Full vector correction is applied to Category 6 link adapters so their effects on link measurements are eliminated. Special calibration data in the memory of the link adapter itself is read by the OMNIScanner and used to apply correction to measurements. The OMNIScanner2 tracks the number of tests run by each individual link adapter, allowing operators to replace or upgrade adapters before wear and tear degrade their performance. Adaptive vector cancellation technology is enabled to ensure all the wiring, patching systems and connector elements that may affect an operating network's performance in meeting some minimum performance level. The OMNIScanner2 has a removable Flash Card data storage system for test results and configuration data, and a USB port to provide data download rates up to 10 times normal serial connections. Additional improvements include Windows 2000 support, new updated link limits compatible with the latest standards, a new updated OEM cable library, selectable worst-margin/worst-case viewing and reporting, custom test limit line definition capability, and support for full 32-character file names.--Microtest

Four-pair cable tester

POWERFUL CABLE TESTER can find true split pairs in short cables and provides easy-to-read test results. The ITC-3402 Test-All IV Plus is a powerful four-pair cable tester with newly added TDR functions. Results from standard continuity tests for opens, shorts, reversals, crosses and split pairs are displayed on the backlight graphic display. The unit measures cable length and distance to fault on all four pairs. Testing time for continuity and TDR is just seconds, and can be used on cables indoors or outside for up to two miles. Built-in software selects from a large menu of cable manufacturers, category, type and NVP values for accurate test results. Operating on either batteries or AC power, the 3402 uses programmable terminators and stores up to 500 test results for later downloading.--Independent Technologies
