Softing Inc. Highlights WireXpert 4500

One of the industry’s most advanced cable certifiers now available through Softing’s US channel partners

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. Jan. 22, 2015 - Softing Inc., a leading industrial automation and electronics provider, is proud to now offer the WireXpert 4500 Cable Certifier to the North American market. Originally introduced by Psiber Data GmbH, WireXpert branding will change from Psiber to Softing over the coming months as a part of Softing AG's acquisition in January 2014.

WireXpert's dual control system enables one technician to run tests from either end of a cable saving time and money. WireXpert is endorsed by leading cable and connectivity vendors worldwide. Proven accuracy and a 2.5GHz range make it one of the only testers capable of certifying today's TIA cabling standards as well as the new 2.0 GHz Category 8 standard currently under development. WireXpert 4500 has optional test adapters for all categories of copper patch-cords, multi-mode MPO cables, simplex encircled flux compliant multi-mode and single-mode links, industrial Ethernet cabling systems (1G and 10G), coaxial cables, and more.

"WireXpert 4500 was designed to be the best certifier available. And it maximizes an installer's investment since it can be updated to keep up with industry changes," said Knebusch.
