ATEC BLOG:  ATEC Features World’s First Certified Category 8 Field Tester

A global leader in providing test equipment rental solutions, Advanced Test Equipment Rentals now carries the Fluke DSX-8000 CableAnalyzer. Confirmed by Intertek to meet the ANSI/TIA-1152-A Level 2G requirements for measurement accuracy, the DSX-8000 helps data communications installers complete system acceptance for copper and fiber jobs quickly and accurately.

The latest from Fluke is available to rent from Advanced Test Equipment Rentals (ATEC) for both short and long-term rentals. ATEC sets the industry standard for test equipment rentals, and with flexible rental length and affordable prices of top-of-the-market products, clients are able to easily test and complete projects. Along with next-day shipping, clients can begin testing immediately no matter how big or small the project.

The DSX-8000 CableAnalyzer is the first field tester in the world that’s been independently certified and endorsed to meet all requirements for the category 8 field testing standard. It offers the fastest test time of just eight seconds for Cat 6A certification, and is the only tester able to test screen continuity along the path of cabling as required for Level 2G testers. With it, designers and installers are able to efficiently and quickly deploy Cat 8 in support of 25 and 40 gigabit Ethernet networks.

"The first-of-its-kind cable analyzer from Fluke is a perfect match for our world-class service and equipment rental solutions," said Chris Reed, business development manager at ATEC. Reed specializes in communications equipment, and is attuned to customer needs as well as the industry at large. "I feel confident in the ability of the DSX-8000 CableAnalyzer to address Cat 8 certification needs effectively and profitably, by saving time with a more rapid testing window and greater support," Reed said.
