Product Description

The new SignalTEK CT issues a PDF report to prove that your installed data cables can carry Gigabit Ethernet traffic at full speed with no errors, and confirms correct wiremap results.

For installers, this means having a cost-effective way to demonstrate that the copper cabling was installed correctly and is capable of supporting Ethernet applications. By proving real world performance, SignalTEK CT confirms a professional job - reducing the risk of call backs.

SignalTEK CT also gives network owners the assurance that installed cabling will support bandwidth hungry services like VoIP, IP CCTV and video streaming following moves, adds and changes.

  • Fast– Autotest provides proof of copper cable performance in three simple steps.
  • Performance– Second handset allows Gigabit data traffic to be transmitted in a real world scenario.
  • Intuitive– Automatic generation of PDF reports uploaded to USB memory stick without a PC.
  • Dependable– Test to the IEEE802.3ab standard.

Today’s challenge

The foundation of all Ethernet networks is the physical cabling. As networks become faster and more complex they become more susceptible to disruption from external interference as well as faulty cabling and or connectors. These physical layer problems can cause a high number of server re-transmissions resulting in network drop-out or slow connection speeds.

If network performance issues are to be avoided, today’s installers and technicians need test equipment that not only verifies correct wiring but also confirms a link’s ability to transmit data at full rate.


Tomorrow‘s solution

Uniquely SignalTEK CT proves a link’s ability to support Gigabit applications by performing two primary tests; data transmission and wiremap testing.

With a single press of the Autotest button, SignalTEK CT transmits 823,452 data frames between the two handsets and reports any transmission errors against performance criteria laid down by the IEEE 802.3ab Gigabit Ethernet Standard.

It takes only 1 bit of data to get corrupted or lost to give rise to a transmission test failure.

Autotest also measures cable length and checks for wiring faults such as crossed pairs, opens, shorts and split pairs.

Simple pass/fail results are displayed once the Autotest is complete which can be automatically saved for later review or download.
