Network Test & Measurement
We also stock a variety of testing equipment for different systems such as tone generators, and breakout boxes for LAN testing, network tester, cable continuity testers, ethernet port testers for Video, data a voice testing and an array of fibre optic testers like; fibre optic locators, fibre optic inspectors. However, there is some overlap with some testers, as tone generators can be used for many purposes.
Why would I need to test my network?
If your system has stopped working as effectively as it may be important to test the issue and fix it as a cable is a lot cheaper and more convenient than setting up a whole new network. Through testing your data/network cables and ports, you can troubleshoot your network and cables and fix any issues. If you're looking to expand your network may be into an additional part of the building, then it's vitally important that the network upholds its integrity. This can ensure the security of the network, speeds and reliability are all capable of withstanding the increased traffic.
What is a tone generator?
Sometimes called a signal generator, a tone generator is used for testing device that creates repeating or non-repeating electronic signals, this can also be used as a part of design processes.
What is a Fibre Tester?
A fibre tester can test fibre optic cables that receive a signal. This could be to diagnose a problem or when initially installing a fibre optic cable that everything is in working order. Fibre testers can measure the distance of a cable and help find connectors or any splices.
What are Time Domain Reflectometers?
A Time Domain Reflectometers (TDR) are great for locating a fault within metallic wires, such as twisted wires. They use sound waves through the wires to detect any issues. Used when the cable is too long and impractical to remove to check for issues.
