Industrial Ethernet Tester for installation and maintenance

22 June 2023

Fluke Networks has launched the LinkIQ Cable+Network Industrial Ethernet Tester (LinkIQ-IE), which is designed to verify cable performance up to 10 Gb/sec, and solves network connectivity problems, identifying connected switch, port and VLAN data, optionally running targeted ‘ping’ tests, and confirming the presence and capacity of available PoE.

By combining Fluke Networks’ cable measurement technology and a range of network connectivity tests, the LinkIQ-IE is said to help speed the discovery of network failures.

Around 70% of all newly installed factory automation nodes employ industrial Ethernet. Installation technicians must be able to verify cabling performance to ensure network performance, they also need to ensure that the user’s traffic can reach its destination. 

The LinkIQ-IE simplifies the operator experience through the provision of a single TEST function with results automatically displayed based on what the unit is connected to. The unit also provides adapters for the most common industrial Ethernet connectors simplifying connection.
