Certify Modular Plug Terminated Links with LanTEK III

Certifying MPTLs (Modular Plug Terminated Links) is increasingly important for installers working with cabling links that have a female socket (jack) on one side and a male plug on the other, such as AV equipment or CCTV cameras. Thanks to the new software, LanTEK III now supports testing MPTL with no need to purchase any additional accessories.

Quick calibration for channel testing

With the new IDEAL Networks software, you can easily speed up the process of channel testing. The software removes the need for field calibration for patch cords, so you will no longer need to re-calibrate your LanTEK III cable certifier between tests to ensure accuracy.

LanTEK III software enhancements improve user experience

The latest software update for LanTEK III also includes improvements to the Russian and French translations to support customers globally, alongside bug fixes and general enhancements.
