Ideal Industries has announced that its Lantek I and Lantek II series of cable certifiers have been approved by 3M.

3M has approved these for certifying copper Class E, Class EA, CAT6 and CAT6A 3M cabling systems, according to ISO/IEC 11801 Amendment 1 and 2, EN 50173 series and TIA/EIA-568-B-2-10 standards.

The approval is valid for cabling systems and tester models in permanent link or channel in UTP, FTP or fully shielded systems.

Ideal’s Lantek II cable certifier series provides certification to TIA, ISO and IEC LAN cabling standards.

In addition, Ideal’s Fibertek FDX fibre-optic modules enable the Lantek II to certify multi-mode and single-mode fibre to TSB Tier 1 standards.

The three Lantek II models (frequency ranges of 350MHz, 500MHz and 1GHz) offer faster test speeds, a 10.5cm widescreen display and improved lithium-ion batteries, with up to 18hrs of field use.

The range makes use of Ideal’s measurement system, which provides reduced cost of ownership by eliminating permanent link adaptors.

The Dualmodea test function enables the user to test a copper link against two different standards with a single Autotest.

This makes it easy to test a link to current standards, as well as measure the performance margin against future standards with higher performance requirements; while adding only 1sec to the Autotest time.

The Fibertek FDX modules for certifying fibre links or backbones simply plug into the adapter bay of the Lantek II certifier.

The full-duplex capability of the Fibertek FDX makes fibre certification as easy as copper certification.

A single strand of fibre connected between the handsets is tested at two wavelengths and in both directions at once.
