May 7, 2009 -- Megger's SCT range of structured cabling testers is designed to provide fast, dependable certification for Category 5e, 6, 6a and 7 structured cabling installations. The company says the new line of testers features a wide range of adapters with easy interchangeability, integrated fiber optic VFL (visual fault locator) capability and dual-mode fiber optic wavelengths, easy-to-use project management software, a high-visibility color display.
"The SCT2000 is a robust instrument that will stand up very well to tough site conditions," offers Sylvain Charuest, Senior Consultant at SEDECO Inc., one of Canada's foremost suppliers of business telecommunications systems. "It's also easy to use, and it covers a wide range of test requirements."
According to Megger, the operation of the SCT series of testers is optimized for intuitive and speedy operation. Certification is a straightforward process initiated by pressing just two buttons: 'Test' to begin and 'Enter' to save results. The instrument displays all of the essential test data in a single menu, eliminating unnecessary menu changes.
The instruments support the use of project-based data, with each project containing all of the information needed for certification. The risk of common setup errors when switching between jobs is, therefore, eliminated. The tool combines rugged construction with a connector-less adapter system that practically eliminates downtime due to connector damage between the main unit and adapters, which is a common problem with many testers. The patented the connector-less system is also field-replaceable in the event that it could be damaged.
The Megger SCT cable testers also incorporate powerful diagnostic tools. These tools speed up the location of the faults which have led to test failures by displaying the length to the single maximum cable disturbance, the length to each pair's maximum disturbance or a graph of all disturbances on all pairs. The instruments exceed Level IV accuracy and have a 1 to 1,000 MHz frequency range, utilizing true vector measurements that greatly increase the accuracy and capability of the instrument.
