The DSX-5000 CableAnalyzer™ is the copper certification solution that improves the efficiency with unmatched speed for testing Cat 6A and Class FA while meeting draft IEC Level V – the most stringent accuracy requirement. The Versiv line also includes fiber OLTS certification, and OTDR modules.

Versiv is designed around the revolutionary ProjX™ management system and Taptive™ user interface. The ProjX Management System tracks job to ensure they are done correctly first time annd helps to track the progress from set-up to systems acceptance, eliminating the need for rework. The platform supports both OLTS and OTDR fibre testing and Wi-Fi Analysis and Ethernet troubleshooting and is easily upgradeable to support future standards.

Troubleshoot faults faster with the Taptive user interface which then is displayed graphically to show the source of failures including crosstalk, return loss and shield faults. This set up and operation have been made so simple that even operators with limited cabling skills will be able successfully test and troubleshoot a system. After analysing the data, a professional test report is produced using LinkWare™ management software.

Fluke Networks’ DSX-5000 CableAnalyzer is Intertek (ETL) Verified in accordance with the IEC-61935-1 specifications for accuracy Level IV, and draft accuracy Level V, and in accordance with the ANSI/TIA-1152 specifications for Level IIIe.

Fluke Networks DSX2-5000 CableAnalyzer
The DSX CableAnalyzer Series copper cable certifiers enables testing and certification of twisted pair cabling for up to 40 Gigabit Ethernet deployments and will handle any cabling system whether it is a Cat 5e, 6, 6A, 8 or Class FA and I/II.

Certifying a cable is one part of a process that starts with system design and ends with system acceptance. The faster that process goes, the more profitable you’ll be. Unfortunately, there are a lot of things that slow the process down – setting up the tester incorrectly, testing to the wrong limits, waiting for skilled technicians to analyse and troubleshoot failures, misinterpretation of results, and producing test reports that customers cannot understand.

Unique Features:

  • Versiv enables users to accomplish more than ever with a cable tester, by accelerating every step of the testing process
  • ProjX management system eases tasks from initial set-up of a job to system acceptance. It eliminates redundant steps, and ensures that all tests are completed correctly the first time, and every time
  • Taptive user interface puts advanced data analysis and easy set-up and operation at the fingertips of of technicians of all skill levels
  • LinkWare management software provides unmatched analysis of test results and professional test reports
  • The DSX reduces the time required to fix cabling faults with Dedicated Diagnostics, a simple test that locates the problem


  • Ten second Cat 6A test time contributes to the fastest way to gain certification
  • Graphically displays the source of failures including crosstalk and distance to shield faults for faster troubleshooting
  • Manage up to 12,000 test results with full graphics
  • Capacitive touchscreen allows quick tester setup with easily selectable cable types, standards and testing parameters
  • 1 billion links reported on LinkWare management software

Versiv Platform is Ready for Today’s and Tomorrow’s Jobs

Electrically centered plug design is compliant with proposed ISO (IEC WG9 Standard IEC61935-1) Level V accuracy requirements to 1000 MHz with a future-ready design to support all hardware upgrades
The DSX-5000 CableAnalyzer enables cable testing and certification for 10 Gigabit Ethernet deployments. The DSX is the first field tester to support balance measurements including Transverse Conversion Loss (TCL) and Equal Level Transverse Conversion Transfer Loss (ELTCTL).

ProjX Management System Manages Complex Jobs with Ease

Manage up to 12,000 test results with full graphics
The new DSX-5000 system provides individual project files to make managing different jobs easier, minimalising set-up errors and reducing the risk of lost files. ProjX management system provides real time status to completion on each job with a 0-100% scale and gives the operator the option to isolate any test requiring a second look and helps to assure nothing is overlooked. The “Fix Later” selection creates a punch list or automatic to do list for correcting any workmanship. ProjX enables project managers and crew leaders to be truly efficient.

Taptive User Interface Simplifies Set Up, Eliminates Errors and Speeds Troubleshooting

Capacitive touchscreen allows quick tester setup and supports all standards
Even brand new technicians will be able to perform test across multiple media types and testing requirements with the easy to use taptive user interface. The interface makes all jobs easily accessible from the menu screen, with a large display confirming the test that needs to be performed, animated instructions simplify setting the tester configuration making correct testing assured when a job is clicked on.

Performs with Unsurpassed Speed

Ten second Cat 6A test time and the fastest way to submit your certification results
Complete copper certification to Cat 6A in 10 seconds or certify two fibers at two wavelengths in both directions in just 3 seconds. Quickly get a Pass or Fail result and easily review individual test parameters by value or drill into specific area on a graph.

Troubleshoot Like an Expert

Graphically displays the source of failures including crosstalk and distance to shield faults for faster troubleshooting
With Dedicated Diagnostics, one simple test runs all test and saves all data to reduce the time required to fix cabling faults. The graphical results screen allows you to look down the cable to see exactly where any cross talk, return loss or shield faults are happening on any given link. The DSX CableAnalyzer is the first field tester to report distance to shield integrity issues using a patented A.C. measurement technique, a factor that will be especially important in datacenters.
