Ideal Industries SIGNALTEK-FO Cable Tester

Ideal Industries has launched its new SIGNALTEK-FO cable performance tester, the world’s first everyday qualifier for both copper and fibre networks. For the first time datacomm installers, electrical contractors and IT/network managers can use one qualifier to check that installed fibre and copper cabling can support voice, video and data applications.

SIGNALTEK-FO offers all of the popular features of Ideal Industries’ existing SIGNALTEK qualifier - such as Gigabit Ethernet qualification and active link testing - with the added benefit of fibre optic qualification.

Traditional power meter/light source kits typically only measure the attenuation of fibre optic links. As Gigabit Ethernet becomes the standard for backbone and zone fibre optic cabling, attenuation testing alone my not be enough to guarantee error-free performance. SIGNALTEK-FO’s Bit Error Rate Testing (BERT) adds assurance that fibre optic links can support highspeed data in line with IEEE 802.3ab standards.

In addition to fibre optic cables, SIGNALTEK-FO can test other cable types including twisted pair data, coax, telephone, security alarm and audio cables.
