Now available from TRIO Test & Measurement, the Ideal Industries IENet PRO industrial Ethernet cable tester is optimised for LAN testing efficiency.
This industrial Ethernet cable tester empowers network professionals to instantly verify the integrity of two-pair and four-pair industrial Ethernet cables and to assure proper terminations by detecting opens, shorts, miswires, reversals and split pairs in fractions of a second.
With its integrated RJ-45 (UTP/STP) and shielded M12 coax interfaces and Profinet formatted results, the IENet PRO cable tester is a hand held tester specifically designed for industrial Ethernet cable.
The IENet PRO's ergonomic design puts full featured industrial Ethernet cable testing in the palm of the operator's hand. A single button push selects between voice, 2 and 4 pair data, or video, keeping user interaction at a minimum to help prevent mistakes and unnecessary repetitions.
Additionally, the IENet PRO industrial Ethernet cable tester will measure cable length and indicate correct wire map to T568A/B standards for shielded and unshielded cabling. It also warns the user of voltages on cables, blinks network hubs for visual cable tracing, and generates four unique tones to make fault isolation easier.
Straightforward "Pass" or "Miswire" results are displayed in the Profinet industrial Ethernet format on the LCD screen, while the bright backlit full dot matrix screen makes results easy to read even in dark wiring closets and extreme low-light environments.
Industrial Ethernet cables differ from standard network cables found in commercial or residential applications. Industrial Ethernet cables are more ruggedly constructed to ensure optimum network performance and uptime, even when subjected to damaging EMI, extreme temperatures, crushing, vibration, corrosive chemicals, and UV exposure.
These industrial Ethernet cable testers feature detachable remotes that enable one person operation, eliminating the need for technicians to be at both ends of the cable under test.
The standard IENet PRO package comes with one remote with an RJ-45 and M12 interface. It is also available with eight remotes.
