eXport Software - Software for data certification reports

New Software for your data certification reports for WireXpert

New and improved features

The eXport reporting software allows the user to centrally manage test results for copper and fiber-optic lines in a single program. Measurement data can be quickly imported with the software from the device. A new compressed file format results in small file sizes without loss of detail and allows very fast data exchange. The reports can be saved both as PDF and CSV files. Due to the additional import options for OTDR results (*. Sor), all results of a wiring project can be centrally documented. The graphs can display the individual RF parameters, demonstrating the suitability for the transmission of different Ethernet speeds. Introducing worlds first List-Based Testing to generate labels and test nodes in hierarchical formats.



  • Imports from local PC, USB drive or direct from WireXpert
  • Capable of reading *.SOR file format
  • Exports report to *.CSV or *.PDF file format
  • Detailed results with plots
  • Easy to use user interface
  • Available in several languages


  • The latest reporting software provides an overview even when handling a huge number of test results
  • Increase your productivity and use the eXport software for exporting your OTDR measurement data (Bellcore file format)

The so-called RemoteXpert feature allows you to transfer the WireXpert screen contents to the PC. Follow the steps below:

2. Launch the eXport software on your PC
3. Click on the little arrow icon at the bottom right of the screen
4. Select “Remote display“ in the displayed window

Follow the steps below:

1. Load the desired test results into the eXport software
2. Highlight the test results that you want to generate in a PDF format English graphic
3. Select “Export“ -> “PDF“. Then select “Summary “ for a short summary of all results as a list or “Detail“ for a detailed PDF report of all test results
4. Confirm the following dialog with “OK“
5. Define the storage location on your PC and start the PDF report

Follow the steps below:

1. Launch the eXport software
2. Select “Tools“ -> “Label List Generator“
The labeling scheme is based on the CENELEC EN 50173-1/ ISO/IEC 11801:2002 standard for structured cabling.
3. Determine the desired prefix in the field “Building“. The prefix remains unchanged in every label. Example: “Factory floor 1“ or “Company XY“
4. Now you have to decide which parts of the label you want to use. If, for example, there is only one floor and one telecommunications room these boxes can be unchecked. Then these parts will not be used.
5. Enter the required number in each part of the label. The first field contains the separator that separates the different parts of the label. Characters such as “Factory floor 1-1“ , “Factory floor 1|1“ , or “ Factory floor 1/1“ are commonly used. However, you can choose any character as you please.
6. Enter the start value. If you want to start with the first racks enter for example for example “1“ or “A“.
7. Enter the end value. If there are 3 racks in this building enter for example for example “3“ or “C“.
8. Enter a start and an end value for each label. The created labels will be displayed in the preview window below.
9. Insert a USB flash drive into the PC.
10. Select “Export to USB“ to copy the label list to the USB flash drive. Create a name for the list. It is useful to take the prefix.
11. Press “Export“ to copy the list. Insert the USB flash drive into the Local unit and copy the list to the WireXpert. Now, go to “Label“ to select the label list for the test.
