WireXpert comes with an intuitive touch sensitive user interface, featuring bright colour LCD screens designed for industrial, heavy duty usage. The Dual Control System (DCSTM) – featuring identical devices for Local and Remote units – makes it really easy to operate the test cycles. Whether coordinated by two technicians or only one, walking time between outlets is minimised.
If you are testing 10 Gbs cabling, WireXpert is the clear choice. If you are thinking beyond 10G, WireXpert is the only choice. Built on a future proof, scalable measurement engine, WireXpert protects your investment in test equipment as the data rates supported by the cabling systems increase. WireXpert employs a novel measurement architecture that achieves extremely wide bandwidth with superior measurement accuracy. Its unique RF measurement engine exceeds level IV and level V requirements throughout the measurement frequency range.
WireXpert has been independently verified by highly respected test laboratories such as ETL.
Most leading cable manufacturers have extensively tested WireXpert and have approved the instrument for field certification and associated warranties of their structured cabling solutions. Laboratory testing and comparisons against vector analysers have proven that WireXpert has excellent accuracy and measurements correlate with laboratory equipment. In fact, major cable vendors are using WireXpert in their labs for qualifying CAT8 cabling systems under development.

wirexpert4500-testingWireXpert 4500, can test many different types of cables and components. WireXpert 4500 has test adapters for all categories of copper patchcords, multi-mode MPO cables, simplex multi-mode and single-mode fibre, industrial Ethernet cabling systems (1G and 10G), coaxial cables, and more. WireXpert 4500 even offers a range of specialised adapters for lab testing. In act, some cable vendors use WireXpert 4500 in their research labs to qualify newly developed cabling components.

List-Based Testing (LT) is the world fist to adopt customized hierarchical cable labeling scheme. LBT changes how cable testing are conducted, from entering and saving a label after each test to simply choosing which label from the preloaded list to conduct the test.

The LBT is ideal for project managers who have preferences on how cables should be labelled and creates flexibility for onsite testers to conduct tests in non-sequential order by choosing, skipping and returning to the untested points. When the site is completed, the project managers does minimal sorting and searching from his/her preferred list, saving time and thus increasing productivity.
