Qualify Network Bandwidth

Using a full cable certifier is not always the most efficient choice when confirming if network cabling has been installed correctly, especially in residential, small business and even industrial Ethernet environments that don’t require certification to EIA/TIA or ISO/IEC standards. In those cases, the SignalTEK II multifunctional handheld cable and network qualifier from Ideal Industries Networks is a cost-effective alternative to certifiers. For small- to medium-sized LANs, SignalTEK II will validate that copper or fiber cabling is capable of supporting bandwidth-heavy voice, data, video (VDV) and IP-based video surveillance applications over 10/100 Megabit or Gigabit Ethernet.

Controller Interface

HAI by Leviton announced the launch of its KNX Gateway, an interface allowing Omni and Lumina Ethernet-based controllers to communicate with and control KNX devices through KNX’s standardized network communications BUS protocol. Lighting devices, temperature and energy management, motors for window coverings, shades, and shutters are among the many KNX devices that can be controlled in homes and businesses from an HAI by Leviton interface or automated via controller programming.
