The Platinum Tools TNC950AR Net Chaser Ethernet Speed Certifier offers a complete solution to test copper cables. The Net Chaser performs speed certification to test the data-carrying capabilities of electrical Ethernet network cable up to 1 Gb/s by testing for noise in the network, detecting faults in the cable wiring, and ensuring that cables are able to support the speed capabilities of active equipment.

Speed Certification to IEEE standards 802.3

Cable testing to TIA568A/B

The Net Chaser’s advanced discovery gives the clearest vision of network layout and interfaces between active components like servers, switches, routers, etc. All the information is collected, stored, and ready for reporting.

To certify Ethernet speed performance of copper cable runs, the Net Chaser handheld tester conducts Bit Error Rate (BER) tests by sending data packets down specified cable runs at defined data rates to check for errors at the maximum throughput of the link. The TNC950AR also reports on signal quality that can impact high-speed data transmission by measuring signal to noise ratio (SNR). Skew measurements report on the signal time delay between pairs that can impact Ethernet data transmission. The Net Chaser also provides continuity testing that detects opens, shorts, mis-wires, split pairs, reversals, and high-resistance faults while accurately measuring distance to faults and total cable length.

The TNC950AR Net Chaser includes a comprehensive set of features for testing active network capabilities: measure Power over Ethernet (PoE) to ensure the correct power is available on the correct pins, use Port Discovery to ensure the correct speed and duplex capability are available; connect at gigabit Ethernet and run ping tests to verify connectivity to IP hosts; discover network devices using Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP) or Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP); VLAN discovery; Trace Route function displays the path internet packets travel to reach a specified destination. The Net Chaser also saves test reports and exports to PCs.
