The new TNC950DX Net Chaser Deluxe Test Kit, complete with a protective hard case Made in the USA, offers a complete solution to test and speed certify the data-carrying capabilities of Ethernet network cables up to 1 Gb/s. The Net Chaser tests for noise in the network, detects faults in the cable wiring, and ensures that cables are able to support the speed capabilities of active equipment. The Net Chaser's advanced discovery gives the clearest vision of network layout and interfaces between active components like servers, switches, routers, etc. All the information is collected, stored, and ready for reporting.
Installers have asked for a tester that validates data cables by testing all the parameters they need to test beyond verifying proper terminations. The Net Chaser is a proven product that does just that, and the new Deluxe Kit puts everything the installer needs within arm's length and with protection from whatever the job site throws at them.
To certify Ethernet speed performance of cable runs, the Net Chaser conducts Bit Error Rate (BER) tests by sending data packets down specified cable runs at defined data rates to check for errors at the maximum throughput of the link. The Net Chaser reports on signal quality that can impact high-speed data transmission by measuring signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). Skew measurements report on the signal time delay between pairs that can impact Gigabit data transmission. Finally, the Net Chaser unit provides continuity testing that detects opens, shorts, miswires, split pairs, reversals, and high-resistance faults while accurately measuring distance to faults and total cable length.
