Product Description

High Performance Network Cable Certifier

The WireXpert 4500 is a high performance network cable certifier that provides certification testing up to Class FA and capable of testing the latest Class I & II CAT8 copper cabling systems. Comprising of a Local and Remote unit the WireXpert 4500 sets new standards for user friendliness thanks to its large touchscreen graphical interface, and this network cable certifier is geared up for certifying beyond the widest frequency range of 1 – 2,500MHz.

The Dual Control System (DCS™) on the Local and Remote units makes it really easy to operate test cycles, whether it is co-ordinated by two technicians or only one and keeps walking time between outlets to a minimum. The intuitive navigation between the screens of the device makes it easy to use and when connected through the PC software export generates professional reports.

The WireXpert 4500 has been extensively tested and approved by the leading cable manufacturers and approved for both field and laboratory testing. Testing kits are available for Single Mode, Multi Mode, Class FA, and MPO/MTP®.
