Is it time to trade in your cable certifier?
The right cable certifier is critical to efficiency and profitability, but this type of high-tech cable testing equipment can be a significant investment for some businesses. As a result, some installers may try to delay the decision to upgrade or replace their existing fleet of cable certifiers. So how do you know when it’s time to switch to a new cable certifier? Well that depends on how important time is on the jobsite.
Current global economic conditions are tough. So, it may seem on the surface that using existing equipment prevents any additional financial outlay. However, using an outdated cable certifier model can slow you down, and have significant impacts on productivity and profitability.
Cable testing and copper and fibre cable certification technology has moved on a lot in recent years. Some older certifier models are becoming increasingly out of date, so carrying out tests is a much slower process than it needs to be. At the same time, using outdated equipment and software can prevent installers from being able to carry out jobs to meet the latest standards. Simply, older certifiers may not actually be getting the job done to the level that is required.
What’s more, some manufacturers will no longer provide support and upgrades for previous certifier models. So, in the event of a maintenance issue or standards update, your fleet of certifiers could very quickly be unexpectedly out of commission. This could result in costly delays and unplanned expenditure.
Add to this the issue that skilled network technicians and cable installers are in short supply, putting pressure on your team to work ever more productively, as those with advanced skills will be needed to move on to the next job fast. For accuracy and speed on every job, more up to date cable certifiers are often needed to meet customer demands when it comes to meeting deadlines, as well as delivering work with the required proof of performance.
