IDEAL Industries, Inc. Launches SignalTEK CT, Data Cable Transmission Tester

IDEAL Industries, Inc. launched the SignalTEK CT, a data cable transmission tester designed for installers and network owners who need to prove that copper cabling has been installed correctly and is capable of supporting Gigabit Ethernet applications to the international standard IEEE802.3ab. SignalTEK CT is a new generation of tester that is a cost-effective alternative to LAN cable certification. It carries out two primary tests via its Autotest function: a wiremap test and a data transmission test. The wiremap test identifies and locates crossed pairs, opens, shorts and split pairs using its TDR, while the data transmission test performs at 100Mbit/s or 1000Mbit/s, providing 100% load on that link from both sides. This offers users a clear reading if the link really can support the desired Ethernet speed. These tests perform to the IEEE802.3ab standard by measuring if all the frames arrive at the other end of the cable, and is achieved by having two handsets which also allows for one person testing. The Pass/Fail results are displayed on the screen and can be saved to a USB memory stick for import into PC for later report generation. It is a cost-effective way for installers and network owners to generate pdf test reports that prove a professional job has been carried out thereby reducing the risk of call backs. The data cable transmission tester has been developed to essentially bridge the gap between verifiers and full-blown certifiers, enabling a more affordable method of testing installations, while ensuring the work is defect-free and documented to meet end-customer's expectations of quality and reliability. SignalTEK CT comes in a kit with display and remote unit as well as rechargeable batteries, patch cables, power supply, multi-lingual manual and carry case.
