AEM TestPro CV100

AEM TestPro CV100

Able to support up to 3GHz frequency range, and testing all mode combination parameters (including TCL, MPTL, NEXT). AEM TestPro exceeds the ANSI/TIA-1152-A Level 2G category 8 accuracy specifications for copper certification testing. This translates to Cat 6A Certification in 6 seconds!

The TestPro CV100 is a versatile, modular-based platform purpose-built to help organizations better manage the deployment and on-going support for today’s digital infrastructure. TestPro supports Cable Certification, Multi-gigabit link speed Qualification (Incl. 1 / 2.5 / 5 / 10G BASE-T) and PoE validation.

    Cable Analyzer / Cable certification

  • Models TestPro CV100-K50 and CV100-K60 have the most sophisticated RF measurement engine in any handheld Cat 6A / Cat 8 tester. It is able to support up to 3GHz frequency range, and testing all mode combination parameters (including TCL, MPTL, NEXT). TestPro's certifier Autotest is a one-button operation that performs all tests required for TIA/ISO standards compliance, in addition to other parameters such as TCL (Transverse Conversion Loss). The Autotest also reports distance-to-fault plots based on NEXT and Return Loss time-domain measurements. All of the tests are performed in 6 seconds for CAT6A channel or permanent link. The use of Single-pair Ethernet (SPE) is growing fast for connecting IoT sensors and other devices. TestPro is the first and the only cable certifier enabling testing of Single-pair Ethernet systems with the capability to test cables as long as 1,000 m (1 km)! For long cables, the RF performance at lower frequencies is very important. TestPro measures RF parameters down to 100 kHz or 0.1 MHz (as against 1 MHz for other cable certifiers). AEM TestPro greatly exceeds the ANSI/TIA-1152-A Level 2G category 8 accuracy specifications for copper certification testing.

  • Multi-Gig Auto-Test Feature

  • The auto-test feature of the TestPro 100 is the easiest and most reliable way to ensure that cabling links will support the desired network rates. Supporting 1 / 2.5 / 5 /10Gig link validation using SNR testing, BER test, real-time wiremap, distance-to-fault and resistance unbalance measurements. Wireless access points (APs) are one of today's most broadly deployed IoT devices and 802.11ac Wave 2 wireless APs require 2.5 and 5 GigE backbone speeds to run at maximum performance. Additionally, these devices can be PoE powered and by the nature of the link speed, require all four pair to be terminated. TestPro can certify the cabling infrastructure in accordance with TIAstandards, verify link speed in accordance with IEEE specific to 1 / 2.5 / 5 / 10GigE, and verify loaded PoE++ in accordance with IEEE 802.3bt to 90W including DC resistance measurements. AEM is a member of the NBASE-T Alliance.

  • Loaded PoE testing

  • The POE adapter on the TestPro 100 provides the most comprehensive testing for verifying PoE deployments. It supports all PoE standards including 90W 802.3bt Type 4 (class 8) on all four pairs. In addition, it also allows for sustained loading of the PoE source over longer periods, through external loads. When a cable is used for PoE, it is important to ensure that DC resistance of all wires is closely matched. Differences of resistance between pairs, or between wires within a pair can cause degradation in RF performance, or excessive heating. TestPro's 6-second autotest includes full characterization of DC resistance parameters, including all combinations of loop resistance, pair-to-pair resistance unbalance, and wire-to-wire resistance unbalance. In addition to operational tests on PoE, the tester enables characterization of cabling links for resistance unbalance parameters in accordance with the latest TIA 1152A standard for certification testing. -SUPPORTED STANDARDS- ANSI/TIA-1152-A (Levels IIIeand 2G), IEC 61935-1 ED. 4 (Levels IIIeand V) and IEC 61935-1 Ed. 5 Draft 46/59/CD (Levels VI Class I and Class II).
