Terminate and Test
In certain circumstances, for example where another contractor has already installed the cabling infrastructure, we are asked to provide a Terminate and Test service. This would normally include termination to a patch panel in the comms room at one end and then termination to a module at the user end of the cable.
Our Industry Standard (Fluke DTX1800) testing equipment is then used to confirm that the complete solution is working properly and produces comprehensive test results in either electronic or hard copy formats. This information is often essential for an Electrical or Main contractor to get a job signed off for completion.
If we have provided a complete data solution from start to finish then we can offer a 25 year guarantee against the product and our work.
Testing is also used to ascertain whether and/or where a cable has been damaged. The results can help locate the point at which the cable has been damaged.
