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.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
