IDEAL Networks Launches Innovative New Cable Certifier LanTEK III

IDEAL Networks, global manufacturer of innovative data cable and network testers have introduced a new cable certifier that helps reduce cost and increase productivity when installing cabling.

With features including innovative Permanent Link adapters and advanced trouble shooting capability, the new LanTEK® III helps to reduce expenditure and maximize productivity for cable installers on the job. Test results can also be sent via a mobile device using the free IDEAL AnyWARE app.

The new troubleshooting system converts confusing frequency graphs into easy-to-read plots that clearly show the distance to the fault, allowing for quick repair of the link. LanTEK III can locate hidden connections, splices and cable faults using Time Domain Return Loss (TDRL) and Time Domain Crosstalk (TDX).

Using the free mobile app, IDEAL AnyWARE, the LanTEK III enables field technicians to share test data with co-workers without leaving the jobsite or transporting testers, resulting in greater collaboration, more on-time job completions and reduced costs.

LanTEK III serves as a Wi-Fi hotspot and, once data is transferred, users can send test data using their preferred file sharing method, including email or the file sharing app.

Once data has been transferred, professional PDF reports can be created quickly and easily from multiple testers using the IDEAL DataCENTER management software, from one PC, saving time and simplifying fleet management.

“With the IDEAL AnyWARE app and the IDEAL DataCENTER software, creating PDF reports has never been easier,” explains Tim Widdershoven, IDEAL Networks Global Marketing Manager. “In addition, IDEAL AnyWARE is not a cloud service. The data captured remains in the user’s control at all times, helping to ensure total security.”

The ruggedly designed LanTEK III is available in 500MHz(up to Cat6A) and 1000MHz(up to Cat7A) models. For fiber cabling, the new FiberTEK III modules can be added to the LanTEK III-500 or LanTEK III-1000 models to provide Tier 1 certification, eliminating the need for additional fiber testers. Furthermore, industry leading battery life provides up to 18 hours of continuous testing without interruption for enhanced productivity.

New Cat6A Permanent Link (PL) adapters (optional) on the LanTEK III help to reduce downtime and lower maintenance costs, with field replaceable RJ45 contacts, eliminating the need to replace complete PL adapters. The PL adapters also use durable, ultra-flexible cable, allowing the plug to fit into smaller enclosures without risking damage, contributing to longer life.

“The LanTEK III offers a pick and mix solution. Users choose a certifier, add Permanent Link adapters or Channel adapters and select fibre modules. They only need to select the functionality required to suit their needs,” says Tim Widdershoven. “It can also be supported by a carefully selected Careplan, provided by IDEAL Networks, to help drive lifetime costs down further.”

Existing customers can trade in CAT5 (or higher) cable certifiers for the new LanTEK III-500 or LanTEK III-1000 models.

To mark the launch, IDEAL Networks is giving away a free iPad Mini 4 or Samsung Galaxy Tablet S8.4 with every purchase of LanTEK III until 31st March 2016. IDEAL Networks also offers a wide range of accessories to support its products. For more information about IDEAL Networks, visit IDEAL Networks
