Product Description

The WireXpert 500 CAT6A EA Cable Tester from Softing (Psiber)

When it comes to an affordable CAT6A EA Cable Tester the WireXpert from Softing (Psiber) is the ideal solution. Its rugged design makes it ideal for heavy duty usage, while its intuitive touch sensitive LCD user interface makes it easy to use. The Dual Control System (DCS™) that features identical devices for the remote and main unit, makes it fast and simple to operate the test cycles. Whether used by two technicians or one person working alone, walking time between outlets is minimised.

CAT6A certification tests are completed in seconds with professional reports being generated through the accompanying eXport software. The WireXpert 500 quickly and efficiently identifies and records the performance of patch cords and can be used to test CAT5e, CAT6 and CAT6A patch cords.

The WireXpert 500 can also be used to test industrial Ethernet cable and coax through its M12 and Coax test adapter kits.

The WireXpert 500 CAT6A EA cable tester includes the eXport computer based reporting software that enables data management and the generation of professional reports and warranty documents. In addition it enables list-based testing, a hierarchical cable labelling scheme.
