Overview

The DTX CableAnalyzer Series from Fluke Networks is the testing platform for today and tomorrow. This revolutionary future-proof platform significantly reduces total time to certify by improving every aspect of the testing process. DTX CableAnalyzer Series significantly reduces your total time to certify. Time is money. DTX saves you both with

  • Cat 6 certification in 9 seconds
  • Advanced Diagnostics troubleshooting faults twice as fast
  • Fastest set up and results management times
  • Tester accuracy exceeding Levels IIIe and IV
  • UL Accuracy Classification

 

It starts with 9-second Cat 6 Autotest. That means you can meet TIA-568-C and ISO 11801:2002 certification requirements and receive structured cabling warranties faster than ever before. With all this speed also comes the highest accuracy as the DTX is the only tester to use a standards-compliant, electrically-centered permanent link test adapter. Furthermore, the DTX-1800 truly delivers on the promise of a future-proofing investment by measuring 10 Gig cable performance and Alien Crosstalk (ANEXT and AFEXT) in full compliance with the industry standards to 500 MHz. The AC Wiremap feature validates for Power over Ethernet services in accordance with TIA/EIA standards, even if a Midspan power supply is used. With over 50,000 units in use today, the DTX CableAnalyzer Series, is clearly the industry's choice as the most trusted cable certifier.

"We rely on Fluke Networks DTX-1800 to test and certify all the fiber and copper cabling at the Intel factory in Chandler, AZ. I have worked with other cable certifying machines, and hands down from speed to stability to the user interface, it is the best tool for the job."

Annual Calibration and Factory Refresh - ISO 9001 standards compliance requires annual unit calibration. Keeping your DTX CableAnalyzer and Fiber modules calibrated is critical to ensure accuracy when testing fiber networks. Our calibration processes are ISO-9001 controlled and designed to certify that your DTX and Fiber modules 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 DTX unit and Fiber modules will be precisely calibrated to factory specifications (calibration certificate provide - 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 DTX will be tested and replaced if faulty or defective.

Repairs and loaner equipment - If your DTX or Fiber Modules should fail, we'll deliver a loaner unit via next business day delivery to keep you up and running. We'll repair your DTX or Fiber modules 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 DTX model 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.

Covered accessories include:

Batteries Channel Adapter DSP-PM06 Personality Modules (1per year)
Chargers Cables Carrying cases Link Adapter (1 per year)

This extended bandwidth supports the ISO Class F links, as well as emerging standards like 10 Gigabit Ethernet over twisted-pair cabling. It also enables you to certify links for other applications, such as video distribution over twisted pair cabling. No other tester on the market gives you this kind of future-proof investment while meeting current Cat 5e/6 specifications.

Manufacturers are integral to the testing decisions you make. To support their warranties, your certification tests must be performed with approved tools so you can ensure your customers' complete satisfaction.
