Manufacturer Description

The Fluke Networks DTX-1800 120 cable analyzer performs Level IV accuracy tests of copper and fiber optic networks at speeds up to 10 gigabits and bandwidths up to 900MHz that comply with industry standards including TIA, ISO/IEC, EN, ANSI, and IEEE. The meter performs a Class F autotest in less than 25 seconds and a Category 6 autotest in less than 10 seconds. Testing includes shielded and unshielded twisted pair LAN cabling (STP, FTP, SSTP, and UTP), Category 6A/Class EA permanent link adapters, and Category 6/Class E 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). A wiremap test can be performed to verify that cables are installed correctly. 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, passive 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, hardware connections, and network settings in enterprise networks.

The meter stores up to 250 sets of test results (graphical Category 6), and can store up to 2,000 Category 6 graphical link test results on a separately purchased 128MB multimedia card (MMC). An autosave function ensures that test results are captured and saved. Results can be downloaded to a computer for long-term records retention, or imported to the LinkWare software for analysis and generation of certification reports to provide evidence that the installation has been completed according to standards and best practices (software and USB cable included).

A copper cable tester is a device for troubleshooting, inspecting, and certifying copper network cabling. Devices range from one-button tools for checking connectivity to complex tools for certifying network installations. Three types of testing include verification, to test whether a connection or cable is functioning correctly; qualification, to test a network's ability to support specific speeds and functionality; and certification, to verify whether a network installation meets industry standards. Cabling contractors, installers, and network technicians use copper cable testers to set up and maintain networks within a building or on a campus in corporate, academic, manufacturing, and other enterprise network environments.

Fluke Networks manufactures tools for network infrastructure installation, testing, certification, and troubleshooting, in copper, fiber, and wireless networks, with its tools widely used by contractors, enterprises, and communication service providers. The company, which operates globally, is based in Everett, WA.
