Fluke Networks CIQ-KIT CableIQ Advanced IT Kit
CableIQ Advanced IT Kit is designed to maximize the efficiency of any cable qualification job. Use the included IntelliTone 200 Probe to find cables quickly and definitively, even on active networks. Use the included six smart cable IDs to perform a high volume of qualification tests in a short period of time. Each smart ID has the capability to perform a simple wiremap test or a full qualification test. Up to seven qualification tests can be performed without returning to the patch panel. The rugged carry case can be used to easily port tools from one job to another.
- Documents that residential cabling systems are defect-free and TIA-570B compliant
- Qualifies - Tests if your existing cabling has the bandwidth to support voice, 10/100/1000 Ethernet, VoIP, or CATV
- Graphically maps wiring configuration and shows distance to faults with Intelligent Wiremap & TDR
- Tests all copper cabling media: twisted-pair, coax, and audio cabling
- Locate and trace cables with IntelliTone digital signaling technology
Reduce escalated problems by as much as 30%
CableIQ qualification tester's powerful troubleshooting capability and intuitive interface enable your frontline technicians to identify and troubleshoot a wider range of problems within your infrastructure. Is the port active? Are the duplex settings matched? Is it a network problem or a cable problem? Can the cable support the required network bandwidth? CableIQ network cable tester is the only tool that can answer all these questions before trouble tickets are escalated to the next level reducing problem escalation by up to 30%.
When to use a qualification tester
If you are a network technician, and need to see whether the existing cabling will support your 1000BASE-T network, a qualification tool is the right choice. If you need to troubleshoot connectivity problems and isolate cabling problems from network problems, then qualification is the perfect solution. If you have an existing network and are doing small adds, moves, and changes, or are setting up a temporary network and just need to qualify it for a specific network technology, a qualification tool is a good option.
When you deploy Voice over IP (VoIP) or Gigabit Ethernet, you want to make sure that the existing cabling will support the bandwidth requirements of your new equipment. Your cabling was certified, but moves adds and changes have rendered many links incapable of running desired speeds. CableIQ quickly reveals whether a link, including patch cords, is qualified for voice, 10/100BASE-T, VoIP, or Gig. Knowing your cabling's bandwidth capabilities before upgrading can prevent countless hours of future downtime and labor hours wasted on unnecessary troubleshooting.
Plug into any cable, patch panel, or wall jack and see both the cable details (length/wiremap) and far-end device details (speed/duplex settings) at once. A series of both cable and network test functions help you isolate connectivity problems. For instance, if Discover mode shows duplex settings are matched but the problem persists, run Autotest to see if the cabling can support the required bandwidth. If a link is not qualified, CableIQ provides detailed information on the nature and location of cabling performance faults such as crosstalk or large impedance changes. With CableIQ your techs can close trouble tickets faster by cutting cable troubleshooting time in half.
Free up 10% or more of your switch ports
CableIQ's Discover mode shows you exactly what's at the far end of any cable. At the switch, test each cable one at a time. You can quickly see whether the cable is open at the far end, or is connected to a PC. Or use CableIQ's hub blink feature from the workstation to flash the corresponding switch port LED. You may be surprised at how many unused ports you can free up and redeploy using CableIQ. Determine where installed cables are routed, all from one location. Attach remote ID's in different locations, then perform multiple cable tests from the distribution center or wiring closet. CableIQ provides the wiremap, pair lengths, distance to fault, and remote ID number of each tested cabling link.
