DTX CableAnalyzer™ Series
The DTX Series has ended production and is replaced by the DSX CableAnalyzer™ Series. DTX Calibration & Service Ends on June 30, 2018.
- DTX significantly reduces total certification costs up to 33% a year
- Three times faster than existing testers with 9-second Cat 6 Autotest
- Independently verified by UL to meet ISO Level IV and proposed TIA Level IIIe Accuracy requirements
- Analyze test results and create professional test reports using LinkWare reporting software
- Verify the availability of network and IP services using the Network Service Module
- Perform Basic fiber certification five times faster with DTX Fiber Module
- Perform Extended fiber Certification with DTX Compact OTDR
The Fluke Networks DTX-1800 DTX Cable Analyzer is the testing platform for today - and tomorrow. This revolutionary new future-proof platform significantly reduces total time to certify by improving every aspect of the testing process.
It all starts with 9-second Cat 6 Autotest that means you can meet TIA-568-B and ISO 11801:2002 certification requirements and receive structured cabling warranties much faster than ever before. With all this speed also comes increased accuracy. The DTX is the only independently verified tester to obtain UL classification for ISO Accuracy Level IV. And, the DTX 10 Gig Copper Kit together with DTX-1800 delivers on the promise of a future-proof investment - measuring 10 Gig cabling performance and Alien Crosstalk (ANEXT and AFEXT) in full compliance with the industry standards to 500 MHz. The AC Wiremap feature validates twisted-pair cabling for Power over Ethernet services in accordance with TIA/EIA standards, even if a Midspan power supply is used. With the DTX Series, you're ready for whatever the world throws at you - today and tomorrow. DTX - it's all about time™.
DTX CableAnalyzer Series significantly reduces your total time to certify.
Time is money. DTX saves you both.
The DTX CableAnalyzer Series delivers superior performance that can reduce your total certification costs by as much as 33% per year. This dramatic reduction is the result of not just faster testing, but also improved accuracy, superior diagnostics, longer battery life, simple user interface, and fast setup and reporting.
Cat 6 certification in 9 seconds
The DTX-1200 and DTX-1800 perform Cat 6 certification test in just 9 seconds - all in full compliance with the industry standards and with superior accuracy. That's three times faster than existing testers. This incredible speed means you can test up to 170 more links in an eight hour shift.
Advanced Diagnostics – troubleshoot faults twice as fast
When a link fails, the DTX Series provides quick and easy-to understand directions to identify the point of failure (distance from the tester) and the possible reason(s) for the failure. These directions not only tell you the problem, but also identify corrective actions your test technicians can take to solve the problem quickly -- all without having to consult with the project manager. Instead of spending time executing trial and error corrections and re-testing to find out whether the problem has been resolved -- the technician knows exactly where to look and what to do to fix the failing link.
Fast even when you're not testing
The DTX Series isn't just a faster way to test. It's a faster way to do everything. It cuts setup and reporting times. Its ease-of-use lowers training times. Extended battery life means you can do more on a single charge. And a bright color display, ample memory, and built-in talk set all contribute to overall productivity while enhancing the user experience. This all adds up to save you time and money every day.
Tester accuracy exceeds Level IV
The more demanding accuracy Level IV specification has been proposed in ISO/IEC (international standards) to test Class F links to 600 MHz. DTX testers exceed this new specification, assuring you of higher confidence in results over the full frequency range. The cost of inaccuracy: A tester showing incorrect Pass/Fail results may cause a good link to fail (false fail) or a bad link to pass (false pass). Both of these false results cost you time and money – with DTX you can rely on accurate results – every time.
UL Accuracy Classification
Fluke Networks' DTX Series was awarded the Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. (UL) Classification in accordance with the IEC- 61935-1 specifications for Accuracy Level IV and in accordance with the TIA-TSB-155 specifications for Accuracy Level IIIe. Accuracy Level IIIe will be required to test Cat 6 cabling for 10 Gigabit Ethernet deployments.
