Overview

The DSX CableAnalyzer Series copper test solution enables testing and certification of twisted pair cabling for up to 40 Gigabit Ethernet deployments and will handle any cabling system whether it is a Cat 5e, 6, 6A, 8 or Class FA and I/II. Certifying a cable is one part of a process that starts with system design and ends with system acceptance. The faster that process goes, the more profitable you’ll be. Unfortunately, there are a lot of things that slow the process down – setting up the tester incorrectly, testing to the wrong limits, waiting for skilled technicians to analyze and troubleshoot failures, misinterpretation of results, and producing test reports that customers cannot understand.

As part of the Versiv cabling certification product family, the DSX CableAnalyzer Series provides accurate, error-free certification. In the installation business there are multiple teams, varying media types and multiple testing requirements. The difference between being profitable or not is just a few percentage points. The DSX certifies copper cabling, complies with all standards including Level VI/2G accuracy, making jobs easier to manage, and getting to system acceptance faster. It’s not just for the expert technicians and Project Managers. Individuals of various skill levels can improve the set-up, operation, test reporting, and simultaneously manage diverse projects.

ProjX™ Management System Manages Complex Jobs with Ease

Manage up to 12,000 Cat 6A test results with full graphics

Managing the testing of multiple jobs with multiple teams, testers, and requirements is time consuming and a source of errors. Increasingly larger jobs make project organization more important than ever. The new ProjX management system on the DSX CableAnalyzer Series provides individual project files for all job specific details to be saved under a simple name, eliminating the need to re-enter job specific details after starting a project. This minimizes set-up errors or lost files when switching from one job to another or utilizing multiple testers on a single job. In addition, it provides test results by cable ID, merges any changes without duplicates and defaults to the last copper or fiber module installed. ProjX management system provides real time status to completion on each job with a 0-100% scale and gives the operator the option to isolate any test requiring a second look and helps to assure nothing is overlooked. The "Fix Later" selection creates a punch list or automatic to do list for correcting any workmanship issues. ProjX enables project managers and crew leaders to be truly efficient.

Versiv Platform is Ready for Today's and Tomorrow's Jobs

Electrically centered plug design is compliant with TIA Level 2G and IEC Level VI accuracy requirements to 2000 MHz with a future-ready design to support all hardware upgrades

The DSX CableAnalyzer Series enables cable testing and certification for network deployments up to 40 Gigabit Ethernet – whether it is an existing Cat 5e, 6, 6A, 8 or Class I/II cabling system, the DSX tests to all industry standards. The electrically centered test plug results in the Level 2G/VI accuracy required to support field testing to Cat 8 / Class I/II, 2000 MHz. The DSX exceeds the IEC Level VI and TIA Level 2G specifications assuring you of higher confidence in results over the full frequency range. Higher performance cabling systems like Cat 8 require more precise measurement to ensure they are providing the noise immunity required by 25G and 40G applications. Additionally, complex Alien Crosstalk link-to-link certification is simplified by integrating the measurement capability into each copper module up to 40GBASE-T testing.

The DSX is the first field tester to support balance measurements including Transverse Conversion Loss (TCL) and Equal Level Transverse Conversion Transfer Loss (ELTCTL). TCL and ELTCTL are important measurements found in the cabling standards. They define a minimum performance for balance, a key parameter to help determine noise immunity. Industrial network owners/operators are especially interested in this property due to the higher level of electromagnetic interference (EMI) within the industrial environment.

Fluke Networks' DSX CableAnalyzer Series has obtained Intertek (ETL) verification in accordance with the ANSI/TIA-1152-A specification for Level 2G test equipment. (Report on file.)

TLC and ELTCTL Graph View
Troubleshoot Like an Expert

Graphically displays the source of failures including crosstalk and distance to shield faults for faster troubleshooting

The DSX reduces the time required to fix cabling faults with dedicated diagnostics, a simple 1 button test runs all tests and saves all data. The graphical results screen allows you to look down the cable to see exactly where any cross talk, return loss or shield faults are located on any given link. Previous testers had frequency limits of their diagnostic capabilities of up to 250 MHz only, but the DSX CableAnalyzer Series removes this limitation. This common view is easily interpreted by novice and expert users alike to isolate and act on any failed results quickly and is stored with the test result for remote analysis.

Features simple diagnostics based decades
of Fluke Networks troubleshooting experience.

Shield continuity historically is a direct current (DC) measurement with no distance to fault available. Other testers run a simple resistance test to verify that the shield has continuity. These tests have been shown to be inaccurate, sometime confusing a ground path as shield continuity and not correctly identifying a break in the shield. Other testers may tell you there is a break in a shield, but not pinpoint the exact location giving no indication of where to start rework. The DSX CableAnalyzer Series is the first field tester to report distance to any shield integrity issues, reporting the true status of the screen continuity. This is especially important in\ datacenters and Cat 8 installations where screen continuity is critical to maintaining alien crosstalk performance of screened cabling.

Case Studies

 
ITM's Fibre & Equipment Engineer reviews their newly purchased Fluke Networks Versiv

ITM, a UK-based leading independent provider of specialist ICT infrastructure solutions and services, applies best of breed technology, in-house expertise and innovation to deliver standards compliant solutions and services to clients throughout the UK, Europe and the rest of the World. Stuart Ayres, ITM Fibre & Equipment Engineer, reviewed the results of their investment in twenty Versiv Cabling Certification Systems.

After using the Versiv System for a few months it clearly offers several advantages when compared to the previous generation of test equipment. Not only is the Versiv System faster, the modular design and online connectivity dramatically reduces our engineers travel time as they no longer need to call into the office to have test results downloaded or firmware updated.

During the few months that we have been using the new equipment I have identified the following advantages that translate into productivity gains for both ITM and our Customers:

  • Greatly reduced test cycle times for both copper and fibre.
  • Easy and fast movement of test data from site to office enables better project progress reporting, quicker sign-off and invoicing.
  • Ability to remotely configure and control the test units.
  • Simplified logistics, we now only have to maintain one fleet of modular multi-purpose test equipment.

PowerCom Empowers Technicians with LinkWare™ Live to Increase Team Efficiency - Case Study

By leveraging Versiv™ DSX-5000, CertiFiber® and LinkWare™ Live, PowerCom has significantly reduced the time and effort needed to test the systems and provide results to their customers.

Challenge: PowerCOM installs and services a wide range of information and communication systems including; voice, data, Wi-Fi, security and monitoring at a variety of both indoor and outdoor locations. With over 80% of employees working in the field on multiple client sites, delivery of test results to the PowerCOM office and/or client is often challenging. Historically, the process to set up test equipment and compile results has been manual and time intensive for both field and administrative staff. Additionally, some customers desired more frequent and periodic delivery of detailed test results, rather than only upon project completion. To address these issues, PowerCOM required a solution that could help their technicians and administrative staff be more efficient, as well as readily and more easily share data with their customers.

Results: By leveraging Versiv™ DSX-5000, CertiFiber® Pro and LinkWare™ Live, PowerCom has significantly reduced the time and effort needed to test the systems and provide results to their customers. Instead of requiring the field technicians to set-up test parameters and commute to the office to deliver/review the test reports, these tasks can be done remotely through the cloud. By leveraging LinkWare Live, PowerCom technicians can complete jobs faster, ensure test accuracy and reduce the potential for rework.

Extreme Packets Case Study
Extreme Packets with LinkWare Live

Challenge:
Extreme Packets completes cabling projects large and small, providing computer network installation services to universities, businesses, and commercial real estate construction. Since its beginning more than 15 years ago, the company has developed deep expertise in cabling, while keeping long-term client relationships. As it has grown and looked to maintain a competitive edge, Extreme Packets saw an opportunity to excel in two key areas: completing jobs more quickly and establishing a simpler way of managing cable test results for its customers

Results:
Upgrading to the Versiv™ DSX-5000 and LinkWare™ Live has dramatically reduced the time it takes to get to systems acceptance. Extreme Packets has reduced its individual cable certification times by 79%, and with LinkWare Live, the company can share test results with clients as soon as they have been uploaded, saving time and allowing clients to track testing progress. Using Versiv and LinkWare Live, Extreme Packets has significantly reduced overall project completion time by as much as 70%. In many cases, a project that would normally take 12 hours to complete with their old testers now takes as little as four hours to finish.

LanTroVision Adopts the Versiv™ DSX-5000 CableAnalyzer™ - Case Study

Migrating from the Fluke Networks DTX-1800 CableAnalyzer to the new Versiv DSX-5000 product line was caused less by a challenge and more by an opportunity to adopt a next-generation technology that leveled the playing field against shrinking budgets and project schedules.

Challenge: LanTroVision is a Singapore-based structured cabling and IT network installation company with subsidiaries and alliance partnerships across Asia, Australia, Africa, Europe, and South America. With annual revenue exceeding $106.8 million USD (S$133.54 million), LanTroVision is focused on continual growth by providing evolving product and service lines that meet or exceed customer expectations. The company has established a legacy of providing best-in-class network and cable infrastructure services, but maintaining this legacy grows more-and-more challenging as customer expectations increase despite shrinking budgets and project schedules. The company is constantly asked to do more with less.

Results: Migrating from the Fluke Networks DTX-1800 CableAnalyzer to the new Versiv DSX-5000 product line was caused less by a challenge and more by an opportunity to adopt a next-generation technology that leveled the playing field against shrinking budgets and project schedules. The Versiv DSX-5000 helps LanTroVision complete cable installation jobs to customer specifications in half the time. It allows them to test all kinds of cables used on the job and maintain maximum uptime in customer networks, all with little-to-no technician training. In addition, the DTX and DSX platforms are interoperable, allowing LanTroVision to make the most of their investments and migrate technologies as their budget and schedule allows.

Annual Calibration and Factory Refresh - ISO 9001 standards compliance requires the unit be calibrated per manufacturer’s recommendations, which is annually for the DSX-5000. Keeping your DSX-5000 CableAnalyzer and Fiber bundles calibrated is critical to ensure accuracy when testing copper and fiber networks. Our calibration processes are ISO-9001 controlled and designed to certify that your DSX-5000 CableAnalyzer and Fiber bundles meet all published specifications. To receive a loaner unit during calibration (available in most regions), we recommend you schedule your appointment 6 weeks in advance of your required calibration date. If a loaner is not required or calibration cannot be scheduled in advance, Gold customers may opt to instead receive a shipping waybill and calibrations will receive priority turnaround. Typical turnaround time for a calibration is 5 working days. Your DSX-5000 and Fiber bundles will be precisely calibrated to factory specifications (calibration certificate provided - calibration traceable with data available for extra charge), repaired as necessary with genuine OEM repair parts, upgraded with all of the latest software and firmware then cleaned and performance verified. In addition, all accessories that came with your DSX-5000 CableAnalyzer and Fiber bundles will be tested and replaced if faulty or defective.

Repairs and loaner equipment - If your DSX-5000 CableAnalyzer and Fiber bundles should fail, we'll deliver a loaner unit via next business day delivery to keep you up and running. We'll repair your DSX-5000 and Fiber bundles and replace defective accessories that came with your unit at no charge, with "first on bench" priority, and return it to you - all shipping paid by Fluke Networks.

Accessory Replacement - Some accessories are essential to testing and certifying cable. If any accessory that comes with your DSX-5000 CableAnalyzer or Fiber bundles are qualified as defective or faulty by our technical assistance center, it will be replaced free of charge. Universal Permanent Link Adapters and Modules are limited to replacement of one set per year, provided they have met the aforementioned criteria.
