Our WireXpert series of cable certifiers let you certify cabling systems to the highest standards. Thanks to its modular concept and unique licensing system, you can easily adapt WireXpert to your requirements, making this series a cost-effective, versatile choice for office environments, industrial settings, laboratories and data centers.
Expanding on our flagship WireXpert 4500 product line, we recently released our WireXpert 500, an affordable model for quick, easy entry into the world of measuring devices. These units enable copper cable certification up to Cat 6A — which fits over 95 percent of contractor applications — and are upgradeable to fiber and copper certification to Cat 8.
Let’s explore some of the other features that make this model truly unique in the world of measuring devices.
The Advantages of WireXpert 500
The WireXpert 500 tester includes our unique Dual Control System (DCS™), which equips both local and remote devices with a processor and large, colored and intuitive LCD screen. These features reduce the amount of walking you have to do during troubleshooting, improving the efficiency of the testing process when you’re by yourself.
Testing for larger projects is also more efficient, thanks to the device’s “3 around 1” mode. With this feature, you can reassign three testers as remotes while one tester remains in the main distribution frame (MDF).
And, with the DCS, each tester has a main processor, meaning both the local and remote are always ready for firmware updates — enabling you to stay current.
Let’s say you have a tight deadline. To expedite the cable certification process, you might decide to schedule two teams, four testers and four technicians. But what if all four technicians could work together on one team instead of working separately? With our “3 around 1” mode, you now have three technicians out in the field while one local remains in the MDF. All three remotes can certify cables back to one local certifier — and, you can accomplish this with only four technicians and two WireXpert kits.
Here are some of the other benefits you can expect to reap with the WireXpert 500:
Fast and simple. WireXpert 500 completes up to Cat 6A certification tests in seconds. It also offers intuitive navigation, thanks to on-screen menus, and it generates professional reports through the accompanying eXport PC software.
Proven accuracy. WireXpert 500 is based on a measurement system independently verified by highly respected test laboratories including Electrical Testing Laboratories (ETL).
Many available measurement modules. WireXpert 500 offers an efficient way to quickly identify and record the performance of copper patch cords. With its fast and accurate dual-ended testing, the WireXpert 500 patch cord test kit is suitable for manufacturing test applications and inventory inspections at end-user sites. Copper patch cord kits are available for Cat 5e, 6 and 6A tests.
Industrial Ethernet cable test kits include M12 adapter kits with both channel and permanent link configurations. Industrial Ethernet kits that support X-Coded M12 interfaces are also available, enabling the testing of 10-GB Ethernet cables. And finally, WireXpert 500 supports coaxial cable tests for attenuation, length, resistance, delay and return loss with optional coax test adapters.
