The DSX-602 CableAnalyzer advantage: speed, performance and accuracy.

The DSX-602 CableAnalyzer is the essential certification tool for copper, twisted pair structured cabling from Cat 3 / Class C through Cat 6A / Class EA. It features speed and reliability that makes you more efficient and productive – you can see the results on the bottom line.

Its gesture-based user interface allows your techs to spend less time interpreting screens and more time testing.

The 500 MHz frequency range certifies Cat 6A/Class EA cabling for 10 Gigabit Ethernet in just 10 seconds.

Advanced diagnostics pinpoint the location of a failure.

LinkWare™ Live cloud-based service lets you manage certification jobs anytime, anywhere, with anyone on any device.

Cat 6A certification in 10 seconds

The DSX-602 CableAnalyzer gives you a complete solution that streamlines every aspect of the certification job – from setup, to testing and troubleshooting, to reporting results to the customer. The DSX-602 performs Class E/Cat 6 certification tests in just 9 seconds and Class EA/Cat 6A in 10 seconds – in full compliance with industry standards and with the industry's highest accuracy. This incredible speed means you can test hundreds of links in an eight-hour shift.

Troubleshoots faults fast

When a link fails, the DSX-602 HDTDR and HDTDX algorithms quickly identify the point of failure (distance from the tester). 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 to fix the failing link. Even if only two percent of the cables certified in one shift fail Autotest, you’ll save as much as two hours of labor time per day certifying.

Fast even when you’re not testing

The DSX-602 isn’t just a fast way to test. It's ProjX™ system manages job requirements and progress from set-up to systems acceptance, making sure all tests are completed correctly right the first time. The Taptive™ gesture-based user interface, bright color display, ample memory, and built-in talk feature all contribute to overall productivity while enhancing the user experience. Extended battery life means you can do more on a single charge. This all adds up to save you time and money every day.
