“LanTEK IV-S has double the power of the original LanTEK IV model, which was a trailblazer when it was first introduced in 2019,” says Tim Widdershoven, marketing director for TREND Networks. “LanTEK IV-S builds on the exceptional functionality and reliability of the original model, with a new dual-core processor, new 3.0 operating system software and twice as much memory storage, enabling 5,000 tests to be saved.”

Testing links with LanTEK IV-S can now be accomplished 16% more quickly. To help handle the test data, the TREND AnyWARE Cloud system has also received a substantial speed improvement powered by Microsoft Azure. Plus, it now possesses a unique, intuitive folder structure (similar to that found on a PC) that makes organising tests far easier between the project, building, floor, room, and rack.

“We know that it is important to cable installers to work smarter, not harder, so the dependable LanTEK IV-S is designed to optimise speed and efficiency,” says Tim. “We’re providing the fastest Cloud system for certification, giving customers the quickest way to upload tests and create reports, alongside a more responsive touchscreen user interface that is 42% quicker and faster operating system software.”

The cable certifier will also be offered as part of cost-saving bundles to maximise value. These offer extras including the Sapphire Care Plan, FiberTEK IV adapters and cables, FiberMASTER video inspection probe and FiberMASTER OTDR, with total savings of up to 20%. A selection of six bundles is available.

Existing users with a Sapphire Care Plan can upgrade to the new LanTEK IV-S at no extra cost. Trade-in discounts are also offered for those with LanTEK II and LanTEK III certifier models. Also, those with a LanTEK IV can install the latest software update for free to benefit from a faster user experience.

“With LanTEK IV, we brought a new standard to the industry, helping boost productivity and accuracy with one of the fastest Cat 6A test times in the world,” says Tim. “With the next generation, LanTEK IV-S, we’ve built on this core functionality with refinements that offer the power and speed that we know busy installers need.”
