Fluke has today launched a promotion to encourage customers to upgrade old cable testers to ensure that their wired Internet of Things (IoT) networks comply with the standard requirements for Power over Ethernet (PoE).
As people, processes, data and devices connect to the Internet and each other, demand for better network access with minimum disruption is leading to increased installations of PoE infrastructure and compatible devices across a wide range of industries and applications. Recent research conducted by Cisco revealed almost 70 per cent of networked devices in Western Europe will be wired or connected via Wi-Fi by 2023.
For a limited time, Fluke Networks is offering up to € 2500 trade-in discount on an old copper cable tester. Customers who trade in their old testers of any make or model can get a new Fluke cable analyser that meets the latest PoE standards at a reduced price. This promotion is available to customers from 1 September to 15 December 2021. Customers can simply purchase their desired cable tester available as part of the Trade-In offer from their preferred participating distributor.
Nicolas Bravo de Medina, EMEA marketing director at Fluke said: “Wired devices will increasingly be powered by PoE as it offers lower cable costs, simplified infrastructure management, easier maintenance, less downtime, greater installation flexibility, and reduced power consumption. With the DSX2-5000 and DSX2-8000 CableAnalyzers customers can certify the modular plug terminated link that typically connects the PoE device to the network. On top of that they can execute ‘+PoE’ tests that trigger a complete set of resistance measurements that ensure proper PoE connection is possible on the link. This will give our customers the confidence and peace of mind that their network meets the latest PoE standards and is ready to use this highly beneficial connectivity technology.”
