Platinum Tools NetXpert XG2 10G Copper Cable Speed Certifier


The Platinum Tools NetXpert XG2 (TXG200) is a 10G certifier for Copper Cabling Systems that can quickly and easily test and document whether a cable link is suitable for operation of up to 10 Gigabit Ethernet in accordance with IEEE 802.3. The NetXpert XG2 10G cable speed certifier uses the advanced Bit Error Rate Testing (BERT), pushing real data packets over the cable and measuring the results. Unlike many other forms of testing, bit error rate measures the full end-to-end performance of a system including the transmitter, receiver, and the medium between the two. In this way, BER actually tests the performance of a system in operation, proving the capabilities of new networks and identifying older cable runs that can operate at higher speeds. The XG2 certifier also includes a full suite of active network tests and tools to speed network installs, including PoE testing and network testing over Wi-Fi. The Platinum Tools NetXpert XG2 cable speed and network troubleshooter is designed to be the one device that can perform all the tests you need during an install, helping to simplify and speed up the process. The Platinum Tools NetXpert XG2 model TXG200 is for certification of copper cables but can still perform some basic fiber network tests. A comparison chart is at the bottom of the page showing the differences between the Platinum Tools XG2 model TXG200 and TXG200-FO.

Key Features


  • Ethernet Speed certification of copper systems up to 10Gb
  • Complete active network testing over copper, fiber and Wifi systems
  • Cable qualification to IEEE standards
  • TDR & fiber cable length measurement
  • PoE testing up to 90W (PoE++)
  • Full color 7" touchscreen
  • Complete reporting in multiple formats

Overview


All NetXpert XG2 Testing functions

To qualify the Ethernet transmission performance of copper cabling links, the XG2 calculates the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) to determine the signal quality and performs bit error rate tests (BERT). The NetXpert also performs evaluations of the delay skew, providing information about differences in the signal propagation delay of the individual wire pairs. All three are crucial tests for determining reliable data transmission and are performed at the touch of a button. With continuity testing, the XG2 checks for interruptions, short circuits, swaps, split-pairs errors, and high–impedance errors. The XG2 determines the exact distance to points of error and the entire cable length.



Copper Cable Testing

  • Ethernet speed certification to 1/2.5/5/10G
  • Cable qualification to 1/2.5/5/10G
  • Pass/fail cable test results
  • TDR Cable length measurement
  • Distance to opens and shorts
  • TIA568A/B wiremap testing
  • Tone generator
  • Custom cable labeling



The Platinum Tools NetXpert XG2 for copper is far more than just a 10G Ethernet speed certifier and cable tester. The NetXpert XG2 network troubleshooter includes a full suite of active network tests and tools to speed network installs. The NetXpert XG2 checks the transmission capabilities of the networks in operation. The cable qualifier detects PoE voltage and uses a load measurement to determine if the voltage is delivering the required power. Port detection checks whether the corresponding data rate and duplex capability are available. The NetXpert XG2 connects to a network at up to 10Gbit/s and runs a ping test to verify connectivity to IP hosts. The XG2 detects network devices using the Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP) in Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP), provides VLAN detection, and tracks the route of data packets to a specific destination with traceroute functionality.
 
Active Network Testing

  • Works with copper, fiber, or WiFi
  • Ping to a specific IP or URL address
  • Link light to identify a location on a switch
  • Verifies DHCP connectivity and DNS
  • Discovers CDP and LLDP Protocols
  • Network Mapping & Traceroute
  • VLAN Discovery






WiFi Testing

  • Signal strength
  • Internal, or external WiFi via a dongle



PoE Testing

  • Load, current and voltage
  • PSE & PD class detection
  • PoE cable pairs



The NetXpert XG2 can produce customized detailed reports in PDF, CSV, or XML format to share with clients. These reports are sent from the certifier to your computer using a USB cable or thumb drive for editing or emailing.


Platinum Tools XG2 model TXG200 Basic Kit is for certification of copper cabling systems. To certify Fiber Optic Systems, you need two TXG200 Basic Kits or the Platinum Tools XG2 model TXG200-FO Fiber Optic Test Kit. You also have the option to purchase the TXG200 Basic Kit and later add another TXG200 Basic Kit. Two XG2 units are required to perform the LiveLight functionality and the fiber cable tests like BERT, loss, and length.
