Fluke Networks' Versiv DSX-5000 CableAnalyzer promises to save installers time

Fluke Networks released a new case study that says its Versiv DSX-5000 CableAnalyzer saves installers time by addressing the issue of lost cable testing results. Specifically, the company said that cable test results are often lost due to improperly labeled results or due to the deletion or corruption of the tool's memory card. New software provided by Fluke enables installers to immediately save test results, rather than waiting for a later opportunity to save the data.

The case study also claims that Extreme Packets, an installation company based in Texas, is said to have observed a decline in cable test time from 38 seconds to nine seconds, when using the Versiv tester. The time savings add up, according to Fluke, since Extreme Packets "does the vast majority of its business on quick-turnaround projects requiring anywhere from 30 to 1,300 cable drops on construction sites with multiple contractors vying for space and time."

The DSX-5000 supports copper certification, fiber analysis, Wi-Fi analysis and testing of optical time-domain reflectometers. See this page on the website.
