XFTP by Trilithic, a provider of broadband test and measurement solutions for cable, satellite and home networking, has introduced a new solution for measuring the speed and performance of Ethernet cable.
The new Wild-cat Ethernet Cable Tester enables users to measure the speed and performance of CAT6, CAT5e and CAT3 Ethernet cable while adhering to both ANSI and ISO.IEC standards. With a full compliment of Auto Test functions, including wire map, length, propagation delay, DC loop resistance and insertion loss, it offers technicians a comprehensive solution for identifying substandard performance in the three categories of Ethernet cable.
The Wild-cat tester returns CAT5e test results in about 30 seconds and CAT6 results in about 60 seconds. It complies with American Standard TIA/EIA-569-B and International Standard ISO/IEC 11801 and offers a tone generator, PING and BER testing. Available connectors include RJ45, F and RF11. Users can also upload results to a computer through the optional software for reports, analysis and printing.
