The WireXpert is the only platform that offers the Dual Control System™ standard for certifying your network communication cable installation. After you install network communication cables for data centers, malls, universities, or office buildings, you are ready to certify that the installation and performance will meet global standards ensuring your customer gets the network speeds required for their application. You will not only be certifying the copper and fiber installation, but you will be troubleshooting cables, connectors, and even installation practices that have degraded network speeds.
WireXpert’s Dual Control System™ means you have two identical cable certifiers, two graphical displays, for both ends of the cable, so you can certify and troubleshoot without being blind at one end of the cable.
Every time there’s a cable issue, the Dual Control System™ can reduce your troubleshooting and certification effort by 50%. Imagine that kind of efficiency on every job you do. You don’t need to settle for half of a cable certifier. Make the switch to Softing’s WireXpert.
WireXpert 4500: the world’s first cable certifier for CAT8
Before you even lay the first cable, you’re already using Softing’s WireXpert project management tool called eXport. You open up WireXpert’s eXport software. Select Label List Generator, and type in your site name and answer some questions about your project. When you specify the number of floors, telecom rooms, racks, panels, and ports for example, the eXport project management software can create over a 1000 cable labels with just this information.
Use eXport to dump the list of cables to a csv file so they can be importedinto the label making tool you’re already using. Now you are ready to affix the labels to your cables and install your cables.
eXport software not only helped you create 1000s of cable labels fast, eXport also just created 1000 List-based tests for you to run for cable certification. You now have a list of all 1000 cable labels viewable and selectable, in any order you want, on your WireXpert screen, meaning you get to select the order of the cables being tested; it’s list-based. For example, while a cable is being repaired, you can select the next test to run, in any order, and then re-visit the repaired cable later. List-based testing helps you manage projects and can double your efficiency when a test fails.
Check out the video below, and you will become familiar with how to create 1000’s of cable labels, download labels to your WireXpert, use cable labels to navigate List-based Testing, run a test, view test results, all in a 4 minute video!
WireXpert List-based Testing Streamlines Your Network Cable Certification Process
WireXpert 4500 is the first cable certifier to receive Bel Stewart CAT8.2 and ISO Class II approval. With WireXpert, you are already equipped for the new cabling certification standard of up to 40 Gb/s.

WireXpert provides certification in accordance with Cat.6/Cat.6A/Class EA and supports certification of fiber optic installations operating at 850/1300 nm and 1310/1550 nm. In addition, a range of measurement modules are available, for example, coax, MPO and M12-D-coded and X-coded.
Quick and Lightweight
Short measuring times and intuitive device operation delivers quick certification. WireXpert is easy to handle in the field, is lightweight, and has a comfortable feel in your hand.
Did you know that the cable adapters for Softing’s WireXpert are media converters. What does this mean? And why is this important?
1) The processing power is in the WireXpert platform, not the adapter. This means that adding accessories to your WireXpert kit is more cost effective to you. It means the adapters are smaller and easier to handle. It means adapters install easier and faster, which saves you time.
2) If you need multiple adapters for copper cable jobs, fiber cable jobs, or MPO for example, Softing’s WireXpert has the adapter for you. Just pop out the current adapter, and snap in the next adapter, and you’re ready to go. By the way, another efficiency booster is that the flexible cable adapters are hot-swappable.
3) And, because of this design philosophy, many times Softing has offered you new platform features, like CAT 8, without requiring you to upgrade your WireXpert platform. You only need to buy the new CAT 8 adapter that snaps onto the back of the WireXpert! That’s platform longevity maximizing your investment.
