Industrial Ethernet Adapter

Industrial Ethernet cabling test with WireXpert

WireXpert supports the industrial end-to-end link applications with the Industrial Ethernet adapter kits. Separate kits are available for two-pair (D-Coded) and four-pair (X-coded) industrial Ethernet test.

WireXpert is the first cable certification tester with full support for X-coded industrial Ethernet cabling. These kits feature adapters with high performance TERA interface and test cords terminated in M12 test connectors. This approach provides flexibility particularly in space constrained industrial outlets as test instrument does not need to directly attach to the link under test. Second, this approach improves longevity of the adapter because extensive use will wear out only the test cords, not the adapter.

  • Testing of Industrial Ethernet, End-to-end-links or hybrid links (M12-RJ45)
  • Easy selection of test limits including PROFINET limits
  • Support for user-defined customized test limits
  • Selection of 2-pair or 4-pair configurations
  • Seamless reporting in eXport software with copper test results
  • Cost effective replacement of worn out test cords


  • Flexible architecture enables testing of M12 channels, permanent links and end-to-end links, including hybrid links (M12-RJ45)
  • Easy selection of test limits, including PROFINET limits
  • Supports user-defined test limits for specific applications
  • Selection of 2- or 4-pair configurations for present and future cabling
  • Comprehensive reporting with eXport software
  • Cost-efficient replacement of worn-out test cables, no need to replace the expensive adapters
