SYCAMORE, IL, MAY 29, 2014 -- Ideal Industries Inc., one of the world's largest manufacturers and suppliers of quality tools, connectors and testing products for electricians and data communications contractors, today 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.

 

"In today's networking market, data cable installers are looking for proof of performance. After thorough research IDEAL has developed an easy to use tester, that is rugged, durable and delivers proof confirming that the installed links run at Gigabit Ethernet transmission rates," says Dan Payerle, Business Unit Manager, IDEAL. 

 

NEXT GENERATION TESTER 

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.

 

CERTIFIER NOT REQUIRED 

Historically, contractors installing data cabling or carrying out moves, adds or changes to an existing network have used a cable certifier to guarantee compliance to international cabling standards such as ISO/IEC 11801.However, it has long been known that this level of testing is not always required. Installing networks for smaller business premises or residential properties often simply requires proof that the copper cabling has been installed correctly and can support the Gigabit Ethernet applications that are intended to be run over the network.

 

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.
