    Ideal NaviTEK IE in use

    The Ideal NaviTEK IE PROFINET Network Tester is capable of testing both copper and fibre optic data cables in standard ethernet IP networks as well as PROFINET industrial ethernet networks. It has numerous advanced testing functions alongside an intuitive interface and numerous smart features that help the user at every stage of the commissioning and troubleshooting processes.

    Cable Testing

    The Ideal NaviTEK IE has M12 and RJ45 interfaces for testing copper data cables. It utilises a series of advanced wiremap tools designed for PROFINET and Standard Ethernet networks and is capable of displaying the correct wiring colour and cable length. The tester also determines the exact location and precise cause of any and all faults in the wire using time domain reflectometry (TDR).

    Notably, the Ideal NaviTEK IE tests every wire rather than every pair in a network which allows detection of a greater range of faults, whilst both standard and non-standard cabling are supported. With an optional SFP module, the tester assesses optical power and detects faults in fibre optic cables.

    Network Testing

    Network problems such as incorrect device names, duplicate IP addresses, packet loss and node configuration can all be identified and corrected by the Ideal NaviTEK IE’s simple configuration tools. The Netmap comparison tool can discover mis-configured devices that can cause a network conflict, whilst it is also possible to detect intermittent issues with the event log over the course of 48 hours.

    The network testing process on the Ideal NaviTEK IE is simplified as common tests such as internet connectivity (Ping, DNS, Gateway, Traceroute) and NetScan can be allocated to a simple Autotest function button, improving overall productivity. Additionally, the tester employs a number of different protocols (DCP, SNMP, LLDP) to display the most important node parameters.

    The Ideal NaviTEK IE’s health check feature boasts a highly intuitive traffic light interface, where green, amber and red are used as practical indicators for the status of the network. Selecting individual devices on the screen will provide a comprehensive list of why this item is highlighted in a particular colour, and what corrective action can be taken if needed. Furthermore, hidden or poorly labelled devices can be located with the hub blink feature.

    Intuitive Operation

    Test results and network status are displayed on the Ideal NaviTEK IE’s backlit colour touchscreen and up to 5000 results can be saved to the internal memory. Operation is conducted through intuitive menus on the touchscreen and a user-friendly push-button interface.

    The user can send professional quality reports, in either PDF or CSV format from anywhere using the free Ideal AnyWARE app (available for iOS and Android). Three different styles of customisable report are available; summary, brief or full which can show either passed, failed or all test results. Extremely easy to use, the Ideal NaviTEK IE creates a wireless hotspot, allowing for streamlined data transfer to any chosen nearby mobile phone or tablet.

    Ideal AnyWARE App

    Practical Features

    The Ideal NaviTEK IE can be powered from a mains supply or from rechargeable batteries with a battery life of approximately 5 hours. The unit has protective rubber moulded housing so it can withstand the challenges of day-to-day use. It comes supplied with a range of testing accessories including a remote unit, power module, patch cables, Wi-Fi adaptor, and two PROFINET RJ45- M12 adaptor cables.
