at a very reasonable price!

Easily test VDSL2, ADSL, Ethernet, ISDN (BRI S/T/U) and POTS, as well as the physical condition of the local loop, without having to swap modules.

  • ADSL and VDSL Universal test set
  • Gigabit Ethernet interface and tests
  • Physical Analysis of the Local Loop
  • Triple Play and Quality of Service (QOS)
  • Easy operation with large display

GigaBit Ethernet interface and tests
ARGUS 152 delivers high-performance testing
and rapid analysis. In addition to resistance, capacitance and voltage measurement, the ARGUS 152 features, when using its Gigabit Ethernet interface, an optional HTTP download, which enables speeds at more than 200 Mbit/s on the protocol level. The ARGUS 152’s optional Ethernet cabling tests make it possible to detect shorts, opens or mismatches, but also the delay or polarity of the wire pairs, among other things.

Physical analysis of the local loop
On request, the universal tester can also be extended on an individual basis, thus offering the user a high degree of flexibility. For instance, additional copper tests (Cu tests) can be used to assess line quality,even without synchronization with the DSLAM. If necessary, these tests can also be considerably extended in the field by simply connecting the new compact ARGUS Copper Box via USB, thus enabling all important electrical parameters such as voltage, current, isolation resistance, symmetry (at 1 MHz), and many more, to be automatically and quickly determined via tip, ring and ground. The optional Active Probe II can even be used to carry out high-impedance measurements on an existing DSL connection, without creating interference on it.

Triple Play and Quality of Service (QoS) Easy Triple Play testing
The handheld tester also offers an optional Triple Play analysis for testing VoIP, IPTV and data services over xDSL and Ethernet. Thanks to its handset, the ARGUS 152 can simulate not only terminal equipment such as a telephone, PC or STB, but can also determine all relevant quality parameters. In this way, for example, voice quality can be evaluated according to the MOS method. Several of these IP tests can also optionally be performed using the new, more powerful IPv6 protocol.
