ACT6000 - New Video Tutorials !
Sure to offer a pleasant support on the best practical use of our ACT6000, we realized and loaded on Youtube some video tutorials.
For the moment are available:
- ACT6000 Part 1: Product Overview:, where are highlighted the main characteristics, functions and field applications;
-ACT6000 Part 2: TDR Fault Locator:, description of the internal Time-Domain Reflectometer that allows many tests for copper line finding, impedance mismatching and occasional troubleshooting as the micro-interruptions test;
- ACT6000 Part 3: SELT operation:, use of a single ACT6000 to perform a complete copper line qualification (electrics and transmissives tests, xDSL maximum bit rate evaluation included);
- ACT6000 Part 4: DELT operation:, use of a couple of ACT6000s to perform an accurate copper line certification (bilateral transmissives tests, xDSL maximum bit rate estimation included);
- ACT6000 Part 5: RFL Fault Location: , resistive insulation test and fault finding;
- ACT6000 Part 6: xDSL PSD:, use of ACT6000 to perform an high impedance Power Spectrum Density test on active lines to verify the stream energy of xDSL equipments, very useful also to verify the DBPO application on FTTCAB plants;
- ACT6000 Part 7: File management: , file-measurements saving and exporting;

ACT6000 - Software Release "1.27.053"
January 2019.

Today is released a new Software Updating , for base and Advanced Software version (ASW-1/II).
Download the ACT6000 upgrade software 1.27.053
(.ZIP file of 2991 KB).

- Adopting the ASW-1/II and ACT-11 (POTS-SUB internal module installed on the ACT-12 - DMM module) a couple of ACT6000 tester allows the automatic DELT Telephone Test to test the Signalling criteria and Transmissive parameters of the POTS link according to M.1040 mask;

- Impedance Response also for unbalanced line/load;

- Correction of some Threshold Limits (Total Power RMS Noise) on some masks selected to perform autmatic or manual SELT and DELT automatic sequences;

- Correction of the F-MAX function available on the Spectrum Analyzer - Medium Band;

Inside the downloadable .zip file it is included the SW updating "FLASH_EN.BIN", the Cables Data-base "CABLEDAT.CSV", the installing instructions, and the PDF file of the updated User Guide 1.27.
