Product Features

  • Combines the functions of a high-end cable tester and length measurement tester, with the capability to identify link status, link capability, and PoE detection.
  • Details

  • Displays length measurement for each pair in feet or meters using TDR technology.
  • Detects presence of PoE and class of PoE per IEEE 802.3af/at with load test for voltage drop.
  • Reports current link speed and link capabilities for active Ethernet drops up to 1 Gbps.
  • Has a link light to identify location on a hub/switch/router port.
  • Tests cabling configuration and verifies connectivity while conducting tests for opens, shorts, miswires, split pairs, and reverses.

  • The Cable Inspector provides full cable testing, displaying wire map, numbered ID remotes, and any faults, including shorts, opens, miswires, split pairs, and reverses. It also measures cable length using TDR technology and generates tone levels for signal tracing and cable identification on all pairs, a selected pair, or a selected pin. A full-color graphical display provides for easy viewing in any environment. The Cable Inspector also has the ability to label each cable and save all test results in a professional report. Cable reports can be exported to a computer via micro USB cable for record keeping and printing.
