Groundbreaking New Fluke Networks Tester Troubleshoots the Most Common End-User Network Issues in About a Minute

Fluke Networks today announced the OneTouchTM AT Network Assistant, a new tool for network technicians that automates troubleshooting of the most common end-user issues in less than a minute,1 greatly reducing the time it takes to close network trouble tickets and ensure end-user satisfaction.

Traditionally, network technicians spend more than an hour using a variety of tools such as protocol analyzers, PC utilities,and cable and network testers to solve network connectivity and performance issues, which provide limited, non-consolidated information. The OneTouch AT tester combines that functionality into a customizable, handheld tool with a one-button auto test feature that offers users the fastest2 way to troubleshootend-user issues that generally take up 25 percent of a network technician’s workday to resolve.3

“As a small team that’s always on the go, we can’t possibly have everything always at hand for network troubleshooting,” said Tony Peffley, systems and network administrator for Elkhart County in Indiana. “At least, that’s what I thought until I tried the OneTouch AT. All I can say is ‘wow’ – it really covers everything from basic cable testing to overall network performance on wired, wireless and fiber. So no matter what we face we’re ready.”

According to Fluke Networks’vice president of the enterprise network analysis business, Gary Ger, that is exactly the kind of response the Fluke Networks’ innovation team had in mind when designing the OneTouch AT tester. “Connectivity and performance problems can hide in a variety of places throughout the network, and today’s frontline technician cannot be an expert in them all. When a trouble ticket is submitted, most organizations deploy a technician to fix the problem, but many do not have standardized testing processes, and today’s tools can be complex and time consuming,” Ger said.“The automated OneTouch AT was specifically designed to address these challenges, saving an organization, on average, approximately one man-week of troubleshooting each month.

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications.

The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications.

“We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner Engin…

TURCK M8 CORDSETS WITH 100 PERCENT SHIELDING OPTION PROTECT AGAINST EMI/RFI

TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.

The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection.

The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.
