ARGUS 260: The broadband tester

The new ARGUS 260 all-in-one tester delivers improved performance for testing broadband interfaces. The high-quality multifunction tester is ideally equipped for the expansion of future networks.

Modern design and new housing concept

Its robust design combines the requirements for a compact hand-held meter in daily field use with the performance of a high-end tester. As the first ARGUS tester with touch-screen display, it enables intuitive navigation of the familiar ARGUS menu structure. Thanks to the use of numerous graphical elements, the redesigned GUI makes this sophisticated multifunction tester as easy to use as a smartphone. A new,
innovative internal help function supports rapid, reliable Interpretation of test results.

All necessary broadband interfaces

The ARGUS 260 reliably tests all broadband interface, from ADSL, VDSL to super vectoring, bonding and accesses, in the uncompromising quality you have come to expect. It is also equipped with a wide range of further interface, such as GPON, WLAN, as well as copper, TDR, RFL, triple play and many more.

Telephony and FTTH

The new FTTH installations are now widely supported. First of all, the acceptance test of the Deutsche Telekom according to ZTV43 should be mentioned here. All necessary functions are now summarised in the option PON-FMT according to ZTV43. In addition, the Argus 260 can be extended by an optical level meter (OPM) and an optical faultfinder (OFF).

Additional features

The integrated WIFI interface enables the ARGUS 260 to communicate with its environment directly - a PC link is no longer required.
Once integrated in your job management system, the ARGUS 260 marks the advent of a new generation of broadband testing.
