Softing launches LinkXpert line of pocket-sized cable testers

Softing Inc. has expanded its cable and network testing product portfolio with the release of its LinkXpert cable testers. These devices include the LinkXpert TP (Twisted Pair) model for copper wires, as well as the LinkXpert M3 model for three media types: copper, fiber and Wi-Fi.

LinkXpert cable testers offer revolutionary convenience to end users, combining three media types – copper, fiber and Wi-Fi – into a single device roughly the size and price of a commercial smartphone. For these reasons, LinkXpert products are poised to change the way IT departments and industrial facilities test and troubleshoot their Ethernet cables.

Ideal for industrial applications, the LinkXpert TP performs active copper network testing, while the M3 extends these capabilities to include active network testing for fiber and Wi-Fi. Both devices are suitable for network technicians who work in campus, office or data center environments.

LinkXpert devices and testing capabilities include the following:

  • LinkXpert TP: Copper wiring plans, cable length, power over Ethernet (PoE) and copper (1G) network tests.
  • LinkXpert M3: Copper cabling plans, cable length, PoE, very low frequency (VLF) and tests of copper, fiber and Wi-Fi networks (10G recognition).

LinkXpert units are similar to smartphones in form and feel, and they include a toner feature for locating cables. They also feature large backlit displays that improve readability and ease of use, even in the darkest environments.
