Platinum Tools NetXpert XG2 10G Cable Speed Certifier TXG200-FO Copper Fiber Advanced Kit


The Platinum Tools NetXpert XG2 (TXG200-FO) is a 10G certifier for Fiber Optic Systems that can quickly and easily test and document whether a cable link is suitable for operation 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 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 fiber and copper 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 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-FO includes two XG2 Basic Units for certifying fiber optic systems. Only one XG2 basic unit is needed to certify copper systems. A comparison chart is at the bottom of the page showing the differences between Platinum Tools XG2 model TXG200-FO and TXG200.

Key Features


  • Ethernet Speed certification of copper and fiber optic systems up to 10Gb
  • Complete active network testing over copper, fiber and Wi-Fi systems
  • Cable qualification to IEEE standards
  • TDR & fiber cable length measurement
  • PoE testing up to 90W (PoE++)

Overview


Fiber Cable Testing


The NetXpert XG2 is an Ethernet speed certifier of fiber optic systems up to 10Gb. The main parameter to qualify fiber optic cables is Bit Error Rate Testing (BERT). BERT is a testing method where a known sequence of bits is sent through a communication channel, and the received bits are compared against the transmitted bits to determine what percentage of data is communicated correctly. The XG2 Ethernet speed certifier also has additional informative parameters for fiber systems to warn users of possible errors but do not impact the qualification results.

The LiveLight feature on the XG2 fiber optic certifier is an extremely powerful troubleshooting tool measuring attenuation in a fiber optic cable. Rather than just displaying a value for the light loss, LiveLight uses the color screen on the XG2 to show a real-time, continuous trend plot for the light loss. Since many field problems are attributed to connectors, LiveLight™ gives you the ability to move the connector or cable and watch the LiveLight™ trend, like a strip chart recorder, in real-time, which is a powerful tool when troubleshooting an intermittent fault. The test data results can be saved as a CVS report.


Fiber Optic Cable Testing

  • Ethernet speed certification to 1/2.5/5/10G
  • Cable qualification to 1/2.5/5/10G
  • Pass/fail fiber cable test results
  • Fiber cable length measurement
  • Fiber loss measurement
  • Livelight active transmission testing
  • Optional microscope image testing

Copper Cable Testing


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 is far more than just a 10G Ethernet speed certifier for both copper and fiber optic systems. 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 location on a switch
  • Verifies DHCP connectivity and DNS
  • Discovers CDP and LLDP Protocols
  • Network Mapping & Trace route
  • 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.

The Platinum Tools NetXpert XG2 model TGX200-FO includes two XG2 basic kits for certifying fiber optic systems. Two XG2 units are required to perform the NetXpert exclusive LiveLight functionality and the fiber cable tests like BERT, loss, and length.
For certification of a copper cabling system, you only need to use one TXG200 basic kit. Platinum Tools XG2 model TXG200 Basic Kit only includes one XG2 for certify copper cabling systems.
