Fluke Networks DTX-1800 CableAnalyzer Series

Copper certification tester guarantees cabling installations comply with TIA/ISO standards.

The DTX CableAnalyzer Series from Fluke Networks is the testing platform for today and tomorrow. This revolutionary new future-proof platform significantly reduces total time to certify by improving every aspect of the testing process.

It starts with 9-second Cat 6 Autotest. That means you can meet TIA-568-C and ISO 11801:2002 certification requirements and receive structured cabling warranties faster than ever before. With all this speed also comes the highest accuracy as the DTX is the only tester to use a standards-compliant, electrically-centered permanent link test adapter.

Furthermore, the DTX-1800 truly delivers on the promise of a futureproofing investment by measuring 10 Gig cable performance and Alien Crosstalk (ANEXT and AFEXT) in full compliance with the industry standards to 500 MHz. The AC Wiremap feature validates for Power over Ethernet services in accordance with TIA/EIA standards, even if a Midspan power supply is used. With over 40,000 units in use today, the DTX Series, is clearly the industry's choice as the most trusted cable certifier.
