Trend SignalTEK CT Data Cable Transmission Tester

The Trend SignalTEK CT Data Cable Transmission Tester is a high-quality, dependable unit featuring advanced wiremapping with TDR fault location, and Gigabit performance testing compliant with the IEEE802.3ab Ethernet standard. Incorporating a rapid Autotest function which provides proof of network performance in seconds, this is a cost-effective device designed to demonstrate copper cabling is installed correctly and is fully capable of supporting Ethernet applications. These proven results can even be adapted into a professional PDF test report, with all of the necessary data included. Ideal for engineers installing, maintaining or troubleshooting data cabling networks, the SignalTEK CT proves real world performance and reduces the risk of call backs.

Instruments such as the Trend SignalTEK CT Transmission Tester play a vital role in contemporary Ethernet networks, systems which are typically dominated by intricate physical cabling. Network drop-out or slow connection speeds are common issues, often caused by physical layer problems causing a high number of server re-transmissions. Problems such as disruption from external interferences or faulty cabling and connectors, which are regularly becoming more & more widespread as network set-ups becomes faster and more complex. In order to avoid these concerns, test equipment such as the SignalTEK CT not only verifies correct wiring, but also confirms a link has the capacity to transmit data at the full rate.

Advanced Testing Capability

With a user-friendly menu structure for trouble-free operation and requiring minimal training, this Trend Data Cable Transmission Tester proves a link’s ability to support Gigabit applications by performing two primary tests; data transmission and wiremap testing.

Transmission test failures can be attributed to one single solitary bit of data being corrupted or lost, this is why thorough testing is crucial. When activated via the Autotest button, the SignalTEK CT will transmit 823,452 data frames between the two handsets before reporting any transmission errors, all within seconds of the button being pressed. This Autotest function will also measure cable length and check for wiring faults such as split pairs, opens, shorts and crossed pairs. Once the test is complete, simple Pass/Fail results are displayed which can be automatically saved or downloaded.

Concerning wiremap testing, the SignalTEK CT provides users with the assurance needed by utilising a list of wiremap templates for common Ethernet cable types including CAT 6A/7A/8 and non-Ethernet cable such as Profinet and ISDN. This intuitive tester will indicate as to whether or not a system will be able to handle services which require excess bandwidth including VoIP, IP CCTV and video streaming following moves, adds and changes. To simulate real-world testing, Gigabit ethernet is transmitted bi-directionally and cables can be identified and traced when used in conjunction with a compatible amplified probe.

Enhanced Reporting

The fast & flexible Trend SignalTEK CT Data Cable Transmission Tester includes automatic generation of reports in either PDF or CSV format, making documentation effortless. Each report comes with a completely customisable summary page ready for you to add your own logo, company and personal details. These reports can be set to show either passed, failed or all tests results including if installed data cables can carry Gigabit Ethernet traffic at full speed with no errors and confirmed wiremap results. Upload reports to a USB memory stick or with the free TREND AnyWARE app installed transfer test data directly to a connected smart device. Send reports from anywhere via the app, even whilst still on-site.

Ergonomic Handheld Design

Built for life in the field, the rugged casing of the SignalTEK CT provides protection against knocks and drops. Support for shielded and unshielded twisted pair cables is provided including Cat 5e, Cat 6, Cat 6A and Cat 7 TIA 568A and 568B wiring schemes. There is no requirement for annual calibration and this Transmission Tester even includes field replaceable RJ45 contacts to eliminate downtime from damaged or worn connectors. Simple cable naming and job creation also enhances on-site productivity, as does the impressive full colour touchscreen and internal memory capable of storing up to 5000 tests, enough for even the largest jobs.
