Ideal Industries’ Lantek II cable certifier series has been approved by Hellermann Tyton, a manufacturer of network-infrastructure solutions, for copper and fibre certification

The company has approved the Lantek II series for certifying its CAT5E, Class D, CAT6, Class E, CAT6A and Class EA cabling solutions, according to ISO/IEC 11801 Amendment 1:2008 and draft amendment 2:2010, EN 50173, and TIA/EIA-568-B-2-10 and TIA/EIA-568-C standards.

The approval is valid for cabling systems and tester models in permanent link or channel.

The 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 – which have frequency ranges of 350MHz, 500MHz and 1GHz – offer faster test speeds, a 10.5cm widescreen display and improved lithium-ion batteries, with up to 18 hours of field use.

The range makes use of Ideal’s patented measurement system, which is designed to reduce the cost of ownership by eliminating expensive permanent link adaptors.

The Dualmode test function enables the user to test a copper link against two different standards with a single Autotest, making it easy to test a link to current standards and measure the performance margin against future standards with higher-performance requirements while adding only one second 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 is said to make 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.

Fibre length is also accurately measured.
