Cable and network tester supporting PoE

23 June 2021 Test & Measurement

RS Components is now stocking LinkIQ Cable+Network, a brand-new advanced Fluke cable and network tester ideal for installers and maintenance technicians.

A highly cost-effective and time-saving unit, the instrument combines the capabilities of two devices with advanced switch diagnostics and state-of-the-art cable measurement technology to provide simplified network troubleshooting when building, adding to or maintaining networks.

Networks are seeing the increasing use of new and fast-evolving technologies such as 10 Gbps Ethernet and Power over Ethernet (PoE). The Fluke unit can provide users with a high level of confidence to quickly troubleshoot cabling and/or connect PoE devices to networks – and at a price that means the tester can be widely deployed across enterprises.

The unit’s cable performance ability provides frequency-based measurement and generates results showing the maximum data rate the cable can support, up to a maximum of 10 Gbps. It also displays information on the cable distance and if connected, details of the switch port, including its name, VLAN status, speed and duplex status. For PoE verification, the unit will display the PoE class (up to Class 8) and can perform a load test from the connected switch.

In addition to system integrators that move, add or change network systems and support technicians that keep the network up and running, the LinkIQ is ideally suited to installers who need to ensure cable validation, error-free operation and documentation, which can be easily provided through the management of reports via the LinkWare PC software.
