A Bit Error Rate sync and async communications line quality tester for a Windows Laptop/PC using a USB port. The FarSync BERT provides a comprehensive, simple to use, all in one, line testing utility for testing synchronous lines from your Laptop. There are no extra expensive modules to buy to test different line types.
The FarSync BERT provides a comprehensive, simple to use, all in one, line testing utility for testing asynchronous and synchronous lines from your Laptop PC. There are no extra expensive modules to buy to test different line types. All the popular standard BERT test patterns can be selected; customer supplied test patterns can be used; the test period can be controlled; real time error counters and full line test statistics are provided as well as support for user controlled error injection.
Lines with network interfaces RS232 (V.24), V.35, RS530 (EIA530), RS422, X.21 (V.11), RS449 and RS485 (4 wire) can be tested with line speeds ranging up to 2 Mbits/s or to over 16 Mbits/s with the FarSync BERT HS Tester-USB model.
The FarSync BERT adapter which is supplied as part of the FarSync BERT product is simply plugged into any of your Laptop’s USB ports; select one of the cables provided to connect to the line to be tested; the BERT application can then be started and the line quality results are displayed in real time. Multiple FarSync BERT products can be run from a PC enabling simultaneous line testing.
API access for LabVIEW or Windows applications enables the tests to be run, and the results obtained, programmatically.
Line Monitor software, which includes support for use with Wireshark, is also included in the product. Line Monitor cables are ordered separately.
