All-Spec Now Stocking Psiber Telecom Instruments

by Andy on May 20, 2009

For over a decade now, All-Spec has strived to expand our product base to various niche markets within the electronics industry. Perhaps some of the most exciting and fastest growing areas of this market are the telecom and data communications industries. Since 2003, All-Spec has been able to offer cutting edge technology through our partnership with Psiber Data Systems, Inc.

Psiber products have proved to be innovative and unique since their introduction to the market in 1994. Psiber was the first to manufacture a Local Area Network (LAN) test instrument that was able to capture and display LAN traffic information without a direct electrical connection to a network. And this was back in 1994! Over the years, Psiber has continued to produce cutting edge technology catering to the telecom, data communications, and electronic test instrument markets.

Some of our favorite Psiber products at All-Spec have been the CT50 CableTool and the PNG65 Pinger Plus+

Psiber CableTool Psiber CableTool: Those who work in the cable industry could easily benefit from using the affordable CableTool. By detecting discontinuities using time-domain reflectometry (TDR) technology, the CableTool finds and diagnoses cable faults with no launch or dead zone and with accuracy to + 2%. This tool can find faults in cables up to a distance of 2,500 feet (762 meters). That’s longer than the length of six football fields!

Psiber PingerPlus+ Psiber PingerPlus+: Generally used for installing or maintaining LANs running the TCP/IP protocol, this tool is commonly used to quickly test proper LAN operation after completing a Move, Add, or Change (MAC). It’s also ideal for handling internet connectivity issues- the specialized DHCP Client Mode confirms a DHCP Server is available and subsequently displays the IP address assignment. This was also the first low cost tester on the market to provide Gigabit testing. Psiber also recommends using the PingerPlus+ for the following networking processes:

  • Verify connectivity
  • Check transmitted and received data integrity
  • Indicate network traffic loading by measuring Round Trip Time
  • Provide the MAC address of an IP Address
  • Warns when the default gateway can not be located
  • Identify reversed polarity for improperly connected wire pairs

These are just glimpses of our favorite Psiber items, so feel free to check out our entire line of Psiber telecom instruments.
