VeEX VePAL CX180+/CX180-D3+

CATV network testing simplified

An all-in-one, super-tech installation and maintenance tool for next generation CATV networks. The CX180+ and CX180-D3+ can be used at the headend for return path ingress scan and return path QAM analysis. Enhanced ingress monitoring in both the forward and reverse paths is possible across a 50dB dynamic range. Adjustable resolution bandwidths, measurement dwell times and attenuation provide spectrum analysis capabilities all optimized for CATV signal types and bandwidth. Similar to the CX150+, the CX180+ supports a DOCSIS 2.0 cable modem or an advanced USG - available as hardware options at time of order or as field upgrades. Remote View software option is also available.

The new CX180-D3+ offers an integrated dual band DOCSIS 3.0 cable VeEX New CX DOCSIS 3 CATV Analysermodem to provision 8x4 channel bonding used in high bandwidth DOCSIS 3.0 CATV networks. With the same powerful Signal Level Meter and QAM analyzer functions of the CX180+, advanced users will benefit from the greater sensitivity and lower noise floor of the CX180-D3+ when troubleshooting low level ingress. The CX180-D3+ is also able to perform Return Path QAM analysis complete with constellation diagram, so no upstream impairment is left undetected.
