TIACall for Interest on Requirements for Field Test Instruments and Measurements for Balanced Twisted-Pair Cabling

TIA’s TR-42.7 Engineering Committee 568 has issued a call for interest for document TIA-1152-A, “Requirements for Field Test Instruments and Measurements for Balanced Twisted-Pair Cabling”. TR-42.7 is developing guidelines incorporating new specifications and other information as required to support field testing of cabling described in ANSI/TIA-568-C.2-1.

Webinar — Fieldbus: The Hidden Ethernet Frontier

This webinar will describe a challenge to data accessibility in critical applications including building automation, process automation, and industrial manufacturing. We will show how the roadmap for Ethernet technology toward Single Pair Ethernet helps to address these challenges, and what integrators and end users can do in their project planning today to ensure their systems are future-ready.

TIA probing field test instrument requirements for balanced twisted-pair cabling

TR-42.7 Engineering Committee on Telecommunications Copper Cabling Systems (568) on Mar. 24 issued a call for interest for document TIA-1152-A, initially titled “Requirements for Field Test Instruments and Measurements for Balanced Twisted-Pair Cabling.”
Per a TIA statement, TR-42.7 is developing guidelines in the area defined by the following scope: “Revise ANSI/TIA-1152-2009 as determined in TIA TR-42.7, incorporating new specifications and other information as required to support field testing of cabling described in ANSI/TIA-568-C.2-1.”
Per TIA, stakeholders for the project may include, but are not limited to: field tester manufacturers; test equipment manufacturers; structured cabling products manufacturers; and structured cabling installers.
