The WireXpert 500 is the most affordable tester for copper LAN cabling certification.

It is increasingly common today for electrical contractors to get projects for installing network cabling systems. WireXpert 500 allows you to maximize the value you can provide to your customers, without adding complexity or heavy cost. Your technicians can certify copper cabling systems from CAT5e to CAT6A (Class D to Class EA) easily with WireXpert 500, allowing you to produce professional test reports for your customer.

Owners of network systems in SOHO and medium enterprises increasingly demand fully tested installations. While technicians with good training and skills can handle the installations affectively, the challenge is to perform testing of these cables efficiently and with minimum cost. WireXpert 500  is specifically designed for installers of copper network cabling systems. It can test shielded and unshielded cables to industry standard requirements.

Note: Please consider the most advanced cable tester WireXpert 4500 if you see a need to perform installation testing on CAT8/40G cables, Class F/Class FA cables, or fibre and MPO cables.

Copper Patch Cord Testing
WireXpert 500 offers an efficient way to quickly identify and record the performance of patch cords. With its fast and accurate dual-ended testing, WireXpert 500 patch cord test kits are suitable for both manufacturing test applications, as well as for incoming inventory inspection at end user premises. WireXpert 500 patch cord test kits are available for testing CT5e, CAT6, and CAT6A patch cords.

Industrial Ethernet Cabling Test
The WireXpert 500 industrial Ethernet cable test solution comprises of M12 adapter kits with both channel and permanent link configurations using M12 industrial Ethernet connectors are supported.

Coax Cable Test
WireXpert 500 also supports testing of coaxial cables for attenuation and return loss with the optional coax test adapters.

Professional Data Management with eXport Software
WireXpert 500 includes eXport computer-based reporting software. eXport facilitates data management and generation of professional reports and warranty documents. In addition, eXport Software enables list-based testing, a hierarchical cable labelling scheme. With eXport it’s also possible to correct measurements which were initially performed with incorrect measurement standards. With re-certification, the operator can apply the right measurement standards to the data retroactively. Data integrity remains because the date of the measurements does not change.
