Fluke Networks DTX-1800 Digital Cable Analyzer
The DTX CableAnalyzer™ Series from Fluke Networks is the testing platform for today and tomorrow. This revolutionary platform significantly reduces total time to certify by improving every aspect of the testing process. It all starts with a Cat 6 Autotest time that’s several times faster than other testers and fiber testing that’s five times faster. DTX also gives you a complete solution for 10 Gig testing over copper, Basic Tier 1 fiber testing, and Extended Tier 2 fiber testing with the industry’s only modular OTDR. The DTX makes you ready for whatever the world throws at you – today and tomorrow.
Significantly reduces total time to certify.
The DTX Digital CableAnalyzer Series gives you a complete solution that streamlines every aspect of the certification job from setup, to record fast testing and troubleshooting, to reporting results to the customer. All told, DTX can save you considerable time and money up to four hours a day.
Cat 6 certification in 9 seconds
The DTX-1200 and DTX-1800 perform Cat 6 certification tests in just 9 seconds in full compliance with industry standards and with superior accuracy. That’s several times faster than existing testers. This incredible speed means you can test up to 170 more links in an eight-hour shift.
Troubleshoot faults twice as fast
When a link fails, the DTX Series provides quick, easy-to-understand directions to identify the point of failure (distance from the tester) and the possible reason(s) for the failure.
These directions not only tell you the problem, but also identify corrective actions your test technicians can take to solve the problem quickly all without having to consult the project manager. Instead of spending time executing trial and error corrections – and re-testing to find out whether the problem has been resolved the technician knows exactly where to look and what to do to fix the failing link. Even if only two percent of the cables certified in one shift fail Autotest, you’ll save as much as two hours of labor time per day of certifying.
Fast even when you’re not testing
The DTX Series isn’t just a faster way to test. It cuts setup and reporting times. Its ease-of-use lowers training time. Extended battery life means you can do more on a single charge. And a bright color display, ample memory, and built-in talk set all contribute to overall productivity while enhancing the user experience. This all adds up to save you time and money every day.
Enhance the power of DTX, Verify network service availability
Improve the services you offer your customers with the DTX CableAnalyzer and Network Service Module (DTX-NSM). Simply plug the DTX-NSM module into the back of the main unit and you’re ready to verify network service availability and link connectivity up to 1 Gigabit Ethernet. Verify if a link is active, identify its data rate, duplex capabilities and whether power is available for PoE. Then document all the network connectivity tests executed as an integrated part of the cable certification documentation provided by LinkWare.
Test cabling with Midspan PSEs for POE applications
Midspan power sources block DC power from traveling to the Ethernet switch or other active equipment in the wiring closet. This prohibits Wiremap tests of the link with conventional DC test methods. The DTX Series CableAnalyzer has the capability to test cabling using AC signals. This unique feature allows full certification to ISO and TIA standards where Midspan Power over Ethernet supplies are used.
Certify patch cord performance
Test patch cords to ensure optimal network performance with greater channel throughput and greater system margin. Attach the optional DTX Patch Cord Adapters (DTX-PCU6S) to the DTX main and remote units and you’re ready to certify patch cord performance to TIA Cat 6/5e specifications and also ISO class D/E.
Test coaxial cable quickly and easily
Extend the capabilities of your DTX CableAnalyzer to test coaxial cabling systems including legacy data cabling (such as 10BASE-2 or 10BASE-5 Ethernet) and video distribution coaxial cabling. Test coax cable length, propagation delay, cable (input) impedance and insertion loss as a function of signal frequency.
Fluke Networks DTX-GFM2
DTX Gigabit Multimode Fiber Modules - Includes one module incorporating: 850nm VSECL source and 1310nm laser source combined into a single output port, 850-1550nm power meter, Integrated VFL, and an SC adapter for power meter.
The DTX fiber advantage:
- Fiber on-board when you need it
- Five times faster than existing testers with 12-second Autotest
- Delivers Tier 1 LinkWare fiber certification reports
- Optimized for applications ranging from 10 Mb/s to 10 Gb/s
- Locates fibers, verifies continuity and polarity, and finds breaks with built-in VFL
- Speeds testing with TALK, FINDFIBER, MONITOR, bi-directional and single fiber test features
- Supports multiple SFF (small form factor) fiber connectors
Record-fast fiber certification
We engineered the DTX Fiber Modules to accelerate testing through exclusive technology and an easy-to-use interface. Press the Autotest button and automatically test two fibers, each at two wavelengths, measure length, and determine pass or fail status – all in about 12 seconds. Our fiber modules let you test more fibers in less time, minimizing testing costs and freeing you up for other tasks. Over time, the savings are substantial – easily more than 100 hours per year.
Test copper and fiber with a touch of a button
Only the DTX platform offers optional on-board fiber modules. Never lose time searching for your fiber adapter. Fiber certification is always resident and ready when you are.
Deliver complete Tier 1 certification
DTX fiber modules provide a complete Tier 1 certification solution – loss, length and polarity. Validate fiber link performance and installation quality. Measure optical loss at multiple wavelengths, measure fiber length and verify polarity. You can bi-directionally test two fibers at two wavelengths with incredible speed without swapping main and remote units, a capability only available from Fluke Networks.
Certify multimode fiber
Your network may contain both multimode or singlemode fiber types. Our VCSEL/LD module qualifies the link for 1 or 10 Gigabit Ethernet use. Save, upload, manage and print comprehensive certification reports using Fluke Networks LinkWare™ PC software.
Find faults faster
Use the integrated on-module visual fault locator (VFL) to troubleshoot simple link problems. The bright laser-driven VFL helps you visually locate many near-end fiber faults, and is useful for continuity and polarity verification. Our exclusive integrated design ensures that the VFL is always on-hand when you need it.
