ANAHEIN, CA, September 16, 2012 (BICSI Booth #1404) -- (Virtual Press Office) --IDEAL LanTEK® II cable certifiers empower IT technicians to easily certify LAN cabling to TIA, ISO and IEC performance standards. With three models to meet copper certification requirements from 350 to 500 to 1000 MHz, and full fiber optic certification of multi-mode and single mode fiber optic cabling, LanTEK® II certifiers offer an all-inclusive solution for installation, maintenance and certification of LAN cabling.
IDEAL LanTEK® II certifiers deliver outstanding performance, diagnostics and speed. Complete Category 6/ISO Class E tests are performed in only 14 seconds, including the saving of full graphical data. Test results are displayed on an ultra-bright, high-resolution LCD that facilitates faster analysis and easier navigation of the graphical user interface.
The three models of the LanTEK® II allow users to certify all LAN cabling performance categories:
- LanTEK® II-350 certifies applications up to 350 MHz which includes Category 5E and 6 (ISO Class D and E);
- LanTEK® II-500 with a frequency range of 500 MHz supports Category 6A and ISO Class EA;
- LanTEK® II-1000 sweeps to a full 1 GHz for ISO Class FA and other mixed media applications such as CATV over twisted pair.
The hardware of the LanTEK® II achieves many dramatic improvements competitive models, such as the large 4.3" WQVGA display with bright, energy-efficient white LED backlighting that is viewable in any lighting condition and at a nearly 180 degree viewing angle. In addition, its lithium ion battery reduces weight and increases work time to 18 hours between charges. The batteries feature two charging modes: a standard 8 hour charge when the battery is charged in the handset, or for a fast 4 hour charge, simply remove the battery from the handset and plug the power cord directly into the battery.
To meet the expanding storage needs of technicians, the LanTEK II features a large internal memory with capacity for up to 1,700 Category 6 measurements with graphs. Plus, the certifier's standard USB interface supports USB keychain memory drives for quick offloading of saved tests. Push-to-talk (PTT) functionality with the included talk sets eliminates annoying noise.
LanTEK® II also features the patented measurement system which, unlike any other certifier, allows both channel and permanent link measurements with a single universal test adapter. Users can simply replace the high quality patch cords with a new set of off-the-shelf cords rather than replace costly proprietary modules or hard-wired link adapters.
LanTEK® II has a patented DualMODE measurement system that permits a copper link to be tested against two different performance 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, all while adding only 1 second to the Autotest time.
IDEAL LanTEK II cable certifiers are immediately available with models starting at $6,414 (U.S.). They are packaged in a lightweight carrying case that features a hard outer shell and a form-fitting EVA foam interior to protect the instruments during transport.
