Fluke Networks Canada is now shipping its DSP-PM06 Personality Module for use with the DSP-4300 and OMNIScanner2 cable analyzers.

According to the company, PM06 is the industry’s first test plug to ensure Cat 6 interoperability in addition to compliance.

“While there are many challenges in specifying a Category 6 cabling system, perhaps the most difficult is certifying the interoperability between Category 6 components from different manufacturers,” said Brad Masterson, the company’s product manager.

“Until recently, to get a Cat 6 installation, a user had to purchase connecting hardware and components from a single manufacturer. With the introduction of the PM06, network owners and installers can test and certify that their connecting hardware is Category 6 ‘component compliant,’ no matter which manufacturer’s component they may have chosen.”

A pair of PM06 plugs for the DSP-4300 or OMNIScanner2 is priced at $258.
