APPLICATIONS

AEM test and measurement solutions serve a broad range of applications including copper and fiber cable certification, component testing, high-wattage Power over Ethernet testing, wired and wireless network testing, and Multi-Gig link speed qualification.

Cable Certification

TestPro supports testing and certification for network deployments up to 40 Gigabit Ethernet for Cat 5e, 6, 6A, 7, 8 or Class I/II cabling system. The electrically centered test plug assures the Level 2G/VI accuracy required to support field testing to Cat 8 / Class I/II, and actually exceeds the 2000 MHz
requirement, to offer a 3000 MHz platform.

TestPro is ETL/Intertek certified with the industry’s fastest Cat6A Autotest at 6 seconds allowing users to test more links per day. Full Tier 1 single and multimode fiber certification, VFL and End Face inspection is also supported.

Fiber Optic Testing

The TestPro CV100 is fully capable of ensuring your fiber optic cable plant meets industry standards. But fiber optic testing has some unique challenges, which is why it goes beyond traditional OM1-5 loss/length/delay, and can characterize hybrid copper/fiber cable, display a clear picture of the fiber end-face, and confirm which networks types are compatible with each fiber tested.

Power Over Ethernet Validation

In the digital age we now live in, IoT connected devices that require Power over Ethernet (PoE) are proliferating at a rapid pace, adding one more layer of complexity for IoT device installers, network owners, and cabling contractors. The AD-NET-CABLE adapter on the TestPro provides comprehensive test functionality for verifying PoE deployments. Unique to TestPro is the ability to test loaded PoE to all standards including 802.3 at/af/bt up to 90W, including sustained loading of the PoE source over an extended period of time through external load ports.

Wired and Wireless Network Testing

When all you have is a cable certifier, you can try to show network problems are not due to the cable, but what’s happening with the active network is a mystery. Not so with TestPro! TestPro supports the following network tests: Network discovery, Traffic generator, Traceroute, Ping, Wi-Fi SSID discovery and RSSI signal strength

Multi-Gigabit Qualification

Delivering up to 2.5 or 5 Gbps over the 1.3+ billion installed base of Cat5e and Cat6 outlets, Multi-Gig solutions enable users to transform their networks in the most cost-effective, least disruptive manner. As part of the NBASE-T Allianceā„¢, AEM plays a key role in the deployment of the IEEE 802.3bz standard for Multi-Gig Ethernet, and our TestPro fully qualifies legacy cabling for 1, 2.5, 5, and 10 Gbps performance.

Automotive cable and connector test

High data rates and reliable communications is essential for the automotive communications channels with increasing use of artificial intelligence. Automotive manufacturers are rapidly adopting Single-pair Ethernet (SPE) for in-vehicle communications.

Ethernet cable and connector test

Most manufacturing units of high end Ethernet patch-cords specify 100% testing of the cords. Manufacturing productivity heavily depends on the performance and accuracy of testing. For raw cable manufacturing, the time ease of attaching the cables to the test system, and the ability to perform testing of entire drum are important considerations.
