The WireXpert 500 is the most affordable copper cable certification tester for twisted pair cabling systems with performance levels up to Cat6A/Class EA. Electricians and network cabling contractors can perform certification testing on copper installations with speed and accuracy using the WX-500. 

In addition to standards based permanent link and channel certification the WX 500 offers optional test adaptors for coaxial cable testing and patchcord testing. Certification testing TIA 568-C.2 Cat5E, 6, 6A ISO/IEC 11801, EN 50173 Class D, E, EA, Cat5e, 6 and 6A patch-cord.

Measurement accuracy exceeds TIA 1152 and IEC61935-1 level llle with measurement frequency range 1-500MHz. 

Compared to WireXpert4500

The main benefit of the WireXpert 500 is that it is exactly the same hardware as the WireXpert 4500  - it is simply at a reduced cost to the end user so as to offer an entry level into high frequency testing. Customers should they require it, can buy an upgrade licence to the full frequency WireXpert 4500 at the time when it is required.

Compared to the DSX from Fluke

In addition the WireXpert has an LCD touch screen at each end. This means that when installers are working in pairs, both engineers can see the test results in progress and on completion.

Tests can also be started and stored from either end of the link so this increases the productivity of an installer when working alone and removes the need to keep returning to the main unit end to view, start and store test results.

Service is handle in the UK and therefore turnaround time for calibration etc is not only cheaper than Fluke but is also faster.

In short the WireXpert is more efficient than the DSX, has greater future proofing with the engine already being capable of frequencies in excess of cat8, and has a far lower ongoing cost of ownership compared to the DSX.
