Here’s 7 ways that TREND Networks testers, now in stock on shelf at 11 ADI local branches across the Southwest of the US, can help improve your productivity.
- Smart digital / IP and analog CCTV testing with SecuriTEST IP
Take less equipment to site with an all-in-one solution that does the job of a cable tester, a PoE injector, a monitor, a laptop, and many other tools. Use the SecuriTEST IP CCTV tester to power, test, and configure cameras and speed up installation and troubleshooting. Then deliver advanced reporting to clients to demonstrate images and network configuration, far quicker than any report you’ve created manually.
- Verify Power over Ethernet without trial and error
With a PoE Pro PoE tester, easily check if a security camera on an Ethernet network has enough power to function, even in different conditions, such as when in night vision mode where there is greater power draw on the network. Plus, simply identify where the issue lies – with the cable, the device, or the switch – for straightforward verification and troubleshooting.
- Locate cables fast with Tone and Probe
In security installations, the network and ports are not always labelled well, and this can take up time unnecessarily when attending site for subsequent installations or troubleshooting. With a TREND Networks Tone and Probe kit, find the end of a networks cable and what it is plugged into. Locate even weak signals using a high sensitivity probe, while audible and visual indicators make cable tracing easier than ever.
- Verify data cabling is terminated correctly
All too often, issues with networked security cameras are because of human error. A good first step can be to check for any miswires. The VDV II Pro cable verifier can tell you instantly whether the data cabling is terminated correctly or not. Easy to use, it can also measure cable length and provide distance to fault information fast.
- Troubleshoot network configuration issues
Issues with IP CCTV cameras are not necessarily due to the hardware itself. Configuration issues with a network can prevent connected devices from working correctly. In these circumstances, the NaviTEK NT Pro copper and fiber network troubleshooter can be used to get all the essential details about a cable, such as VLAN ID, port information, wiremapping, IP address, and more, making troubleshooting fast and accurate. By using the TREND AnyWARE app, you can also generate professional PDF reports that the customer can rely on.
- Use real traffic to demonstrate CCTV performance
It’s one thing for an IP CCTV camera (or series of them) to theoretically work on a network. It’s quite another to check and prove that the network can support the data load during installation. This is where the SignalTEK CT cable transmission tester and SignalTEK NT network transmission tester can help. These testers work by sending real traffic data through the network, which can then be tested to confirm the real-world performance of the camera installation. Reports can be generated easily to show dependable performance to an IEEE standard.
- Identify cable breaks in seconds
Every second counts when it comes to productivity and profitability. At ADI, pick up a VFF5 fiber optic visual fault finder which can help identify breaks in a cable fast. No need to waste time looking for the issue, find the break that needs fixing right away thanks to the red light that glows in the location of the fault. Simple and effective.
