A Fluke Networks lança o Adaptador DSX CableAnalyzer™ para conector ix de Ethernet Industrial®

13 de maio de 2019 / Everett, WA

Allows Complete Certification of Links Based on IEC Standard High-Performance, Small Form Factor Adapter

Today, Fluke Networks, HIROSE and HARTING announced the availability of an adapter supporting the ix Industrial® connector for its DSX CableAnalyzer™ family of network cabling certification tools. The ix Industrial® is a rugged Ethernet connector for harsh environments, based on IEC 61076-3-124 standard with a 70% smaller size than the traditional 8-pin modular (“RJ-45”) connector. This new Ethernet interface is a joint development of HIROSE and HARTING. The new adapter allows the DSX Series to connect to cabling systems employing the ix Industrial® connector for the purposes of pre-startup verification and troubleshooting.

The ix Industrial® connector was developed in cooperation between the technology partners HIROSE and HARTING and was introduced to the market 2016. HIROSE and HARTING understand the need for pre-startup testing of cabling systems. They stated: “Mesmo quando os clientes e prestadores de serviços usam componentes de alta qualidade, as variações no processo de instalação podem causar problemas, desde falhas intermitentes até falhas totais que levam a interrupções não planejadas. Certificar o cabeamento instalado pelos padrões industriais durante a implementação reduz o tempo de inicialização e evita interrupções dispendiosas associadas ao cabeamento.”

The miniaturized ix Industrial® connector supports communications rates to 10 Gbps when used with Category 6A or Class EA cabling. Its rugged design features an enhanced PCB retention force, durability up to 5.000 cycles, and a high level of resistance to Electromagnetic Interference (EMI). Several major companies have endorsed the connector already for use as an Ethernet interface. With the market trend for smaller devices, such as vision sensors and small controllers, the need for miniaturized connections is growing and the ix Industrial® connector is a suitable solution for this market requirement.

O DSX CableAnalyzer Series da Fluke Networks é parte do sistema de certificação de cabeamento líder do setor, compatível com a maior variedade de cabeamentos de instalações até a Categoria 8, fibra monomodo e multimodo, e padrões da Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA), International Standards Organization (ISO) e o Institute for Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE). Mais de 30 fabricantes de cabos de todo o mundo endossaram o DSX CableAnalyzer Series para certificação de sistemas instalados.  O DSX CableAnalyzer Series executa testes rigorosos com resultados simples passa/falha e conta com funções de diagnóstico amplas que reduzem significativamente o tempo de resolução de problemas.

“As pesquisas demonstram que mais da metade das falhas de Ethernet Industrial podem ser rastreadas para problemas de cabeamento,” afirma Walter Hock, vice-presidente e gerente geral da Fluke Networks. “Alguns exemplos incluem falhas de conectores, quebras de cabos ou blindagem, susceptibilidade a interferência eletromagnética ou umidade, e cabos que não cumprem as especificações ou que são simplesmente longos demais. The DSX CableAnalyzer Series can now ensure that installed cables with IX connectors are suitable for Industrial Ethernet environments before machinery starts running or troubleshoot these problems quickly in the case of failure.”

Availability: The IX adapter for the DSX CableAnalyzer Series is manufactured by Fluke Networks and is exclusively available through HIROSE and HARTING resellers.
