Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Yes, both with LanTEK III and LanTEK IV-S.
According to standards, an RJ45 plug must withstand 750 insertions which is achievable for a quality patch cord. The tips of the LanTEK IV-S PL adapters are designed to withstand at least 2000 insertions under normal circumstances.
These PL adapters are a high quality and very durable but still lightweight cable. Under normal use, this part does not need to be replaced during the lifetime of the product.
When using channel adapters, it may happen that only one adapter gets damaged by a faulty patch cord. Therefore it makes sense to only offer single adapters. However, PL tips will only suffer wear due to a large number of insertions which most likely will always happen on both adapters , therefore both tips most likely will wear out same time. Therefore offering the tips as pairs makes more sense.
Yes. First of all, LanTEK IV-S features a wiremap with distance to fault to locate severe faults. Secondly LanTEK IV-S offers TDX and TDRL to locate crosstalk and return loss faults along the link. This enables users to locate even small issues.
Yes. First of all, the wiremap distance to fault indicates the approximate location of a shield. Secondly, a short between a pin and shield causes a huge return loss fault. The location of this fault can be accurately displayed by the TDRL feature.
Yes. With the TDX feature, the user can see where there is a crosstalk problem along the cable. If the consolidation point contributes too much crosstalk, it will be visible in TDX. The user than can disconnect the extension from the consolidation point and re-test the link to verify if the link than meets specs or not.
