The Fluke Networks DTX-LT 120 CableAnalyzer performs tests of copper networks at bandwidths up to 350 MHz that comply with industry standards including TIA, ISO/IEC, EN, ANSI, and IEEE. Testing includes shielded and unshielded twisted pair LAN cabling. The meter includes one DTX-LT unit and one smart remote. The DTX module cavity accepts additional test modules as network testing needs and requirements change, including fiber and network service modules. The unit supports coaxial adapters, custom limits, and talk between operators at the main and remote units (headphones not included). A wiremap test can be performed to verify that cables are installed correctly. The permanent link adapter provides repeatable accuracy and Category 5e and Category 6 interoperability. The user-selected test standard automatically determines the test parameters and frequency range for the performed tests. Autotests can be started from the main or remote unit. The fiber autotest performs a dual-fiber, dual-wavelength certification test. The backlit, passive color, LCD display has a diagonal measurement of 3.7 in/9.4 cm and a resolution of 240 x 320 pixels (W x H). Copper and fiber testers are used by network technicians to troubleshoot, maintain, and optimize performance of copper and fiber optic cabling, hardware connections, and network settings in enterprise networks.
The meter stores up to 250 sets of test results (graphical Category 6). An autosave function ensures that test results are captured and saved. Results can be downloaded to a computer for long-term records retention, or imported to the LinkWare software for analysis and generation of certification reports to provide evidence that the installation has been completed according to standards and best practices (software and USB cable included).

A copper cable tester is a device for troubleshooting, inspecting, and certifying copper network cabling. Devices range from one-button tools for checking connectivity to complex tools for certifying network installations. Three types of testing include verification, to test whether a connection or cable is functioning correctly; qualification, to test a network's ability to support specific speeds and functionality; and certification, to verify whether a network installation meets industry standards. Cabling contractors, installers, and network technicians use copper cable testers to set up and maintain networks within a building or on a campus in corporate, academic, manufacturing, and other enterprise network environments.
Fluke Networks manufactures tools for network infrastructure installation, testing, certification, and troubleshooting, in copper, fiber, and wireless networks, with its tools widely used by contractors, enterprises, and communication service providers. The company, which operates globally, is based in Everett, WA.
