Softing brings WireXpert 4500 cable certifier to North America
By Alyssa Dalton
May 5, 2015 – Softing, an industrial automation and electronics provider, is now offering the WireXpert 4500 cable certifier to the North American market. Originally introduced by Psiber Data GmbH, WireXpert branding will change from Psiber to Softing over the coming months as a part of Softing AG’s acquisition in January 2014. WireXpert’s dual control system enables one technician to run tests from either end of a cable saving time and money, it says. According to the company, the cable certifier’s proven accuracy and a 2.5GHz range make it one of the only testers capable of certifying today’s TIA cabling standards as well as the new 2.0 GHz Category 8 standard currently under development. It has optional test adapters for all categories of copper patch-cords, multi-mode MPO cables, simplex encircled flux compliant multi-mode and single-mode links, industrial Ethernet cabling systems (1G and 10G), coaxial cables, and more.
