Unique xDSL availability and activity tester!
KE3100 xDSL Detection Kit – unique, compact & affordable! With the kit, technicians are able to detect the availability and activity of classic and IP-based DSL connections as well as detect them without contact.
The KE890 xDSL Check can activate an inactive DSLAM / ISAM at the remote end of a wired line to indicate the availability of a DSL service and the Annex variant which is reported back by the DSLAM via LED: Annex A / M (DSL via POTS), Annex B (DSL via ISDN) or Annex J (All-IP). All current xDSL services according to ITU-T G.441 such as ADSL or VDSL2 as well as the new SuperVectoring (VDSL 35b) and G.fast technology are supported.
Optionally, on the network operator‘s or supplier‘s side, the KE890 xDSL Check performs the detection of an active xDSL modem at the end of the line. Thus, it can be remotely assessed whether a modem is connected on the customer side.
With the KE420 xDSL PROBE, wire pairs which carry active xDSL signals can be detected contactlessly. The active services are neither disturbed nor do they lose their connection. This way, the lines carrying an active xDSL signal in the switching center, the cable splitter, the house transfer point or the building, can be easily detected.
The Ethernet link test detects active (patched) network connections: it quickly identifies the corresponding port on the switch by using the link blink function.
KE3100 is equipped with a line tracer function in order to identify specific lines in telephony, data, coax and electrical installations carrying a maximum voltage up to 100 V. Cables can be located in cable channels or walls. Wire pairs, even reversals and split pairs can be detected. A continuity test with resistance-dependent tone frequency helps technicians to determine the copper cable‘s condition.
