|Areas of application
NetXpert XG2 PLUS is the cable tester for you if...
- you need to prove Ethernet cable performance to an application speed of 100Mb, 1G, 5G, or 10G
- you have a suspect cable installation or environment with EMI
- you have old cables and you need to prove they will work with new access points or higher than designed speeds
- you need to prove that copper cables longer than 100 meters will perform
- you need to test copper, fiber, Wi-Fi, and PoE
- certification is not required
- cable warranty is not being supplied by a cable manufacturer
High data transmission rates on copper and fiber optic cabling of up to 10Gb/s Ethernet and new Power-over-Ethernet applications up to 90W lead to completely new challenges in the field of structured cabling. NetXpert XG2-PLUS offers comprehensive active and passive network testing with BERT to prove cable speed performance up to 10Gb/s for qualification, commissioning and troubleshooting on copper and fiber cabling.
With the largest touch display in its class, NetXpert XG2-PLUS guarantees easy operation and clear presentation of results. NetXpert XG2-PLUS offers highest reliability of results due to the unique combination of up to five different test methods for the evaluation of copper links - BERT (bit error rate test), SNR, Delay Skew, length of cable, and Wiremap.
For fiber optic cabling, the NetXpert XG2-PLUS offers an attenuation test in addition to the BERT test, and through LiveLight™, an optical attenuation trend display to help troubleshoot in real-time.
For the inspection of fiber optic connectors, there is the ability to connect an optional video microscope.
Flexible, expandable model range upgradeable from 1Gb/s BERT to 10Gb/s BERT
NetXpert XG2 and NetXpert XG2-PLUS qualify twisted pair cabling from 1Gb/s BERT to 10Gb/s BERT. With their unique combination of 4 measurement methods, these devices check whether your cabling can transmit Ethernet up to 10Gb/s without interference. The NetXpert XG2 is available in the smallest version starting at 1Gb/s BERT and can be upgraded up to 10Gb/s BERT. The NetXpert XG2-PLUS is fully equipped to also qualify fiber optic cabling up to 10Gb/s BERT. Watch video.
Active Network Testing
NetXpert XG2 PLUS can perform active network tests such as DHCP, switch IP address, speed, gateway address, subnet mask, DNS server, lease time, response time, network discovery, ping, check for duplicate IPs, traceroute, LLDP, CDP, and check for VLANs. One extremely powerful tool is the ability to insert your SFP into the bay and check SFP properties. Watch video.
