Product overview: Fluke Networks Industrial Ethernet DSX CableAnalyzer™ Kit

Studies show that half of Industrial Ethernet problems are caused by cabling. The DSX CableAnalyzer validates cable performance to TIA 1005-A and ISO 11801:3 standards, allowing industrial companies and machine builders to ensure compliance, start up faster, and reduce production down time.

The DSX CableAnalyzer works on cables running EtherNet/IP™, Profnet™, ModBus TCP™, EtherCAT, plus other protocols. It offers touchscreen project management, TIA Level IIIe accuracy, and advanced troubleshooting, all with integrated Wi-Fi and 8-hour battery life.

The kit includes the Versiv mainframe and remote units, a reference module, adapters, commonly used accessories, and a statement of calibration.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite and best cable tester available This tester when it came out had no other tester close to matching it. Its has a good size touchscreen for the main tester pkus an easy to read pass/fail remote, 10sec results of cable map(shows problem at main or remote sides, next, ps next, cable length, Cable shorts, so much more! Has different head attachments for RJ45 female and male connectors. Also we got the fiber optic heads yo switch to when working fiber optic (GREAT!)
