Tester 25 from Psiber Data System provides LAN Installers and
Maintainers a tool to quickly test Fast Ethernet (100baseTX) and
Standard Ethernet (10baseT) Links. The Model 25 decodes Link signals
and displays the exact configuration of the equipment connected
to the Link, verifies the Link connectivity to the far end, tests
for reported faults and determines correct polarity of the outlet
or cable. In addition, the Link Tester 25 transmits Link signal
for identifying the hub switch port connected to the outlet being
tested. When no Link signals are detected, it automatically generates
a tone signal for tracing cable runs with a standard tone probe.
The Model 25 warns the users of potential duplex mode mismatch when
a hub, switch or NIC is transmitting a Link signal with an ambiguous
duplex mode. Knowing equipment configuration and capabilities are
essential to optimizing network system performance.
The New LinkTester 30 Outlet Identifier from Psiber Data
Systems provides Installers and Maintainers a tool to quickly test
that an outlet is "live" and identify the type of telecom or LAN
equipment connected to the outlet. Connecting equipment to an unknown
outlet can damage the installed device due to incompatible voltage
and current levels. The Model 30 reduces time spent on Moves, Adds
and Changes (MACs) by verifying physical layer and hub/switch ports
available for reassignment. The LinkTester 30 is an essential tool
for maintaining networks containing both Ethernet and Token Ring
devices. Standard Ethernet or Fast Ethernet Links are identified
and equipment support for 10/100 Auto-negotiation is displayed.
Token Ring testing includes insertion into the ring and measuring
required current levels. Telecom systems and LANs can now be supported
with a single tool.
