Whether your cables are in Soho, New York, Los Angeles, or Timbuktu, the Monoprice LanSOHO 200 Cable Tester will be there to defend your network from faulty cables, or at least let you know when you have one.
This multifunction tester is designed to work with RJ45 and BNC Coax cables. It can test for continuity, open or short circuits, crossed wires, or incorrectly wired split pairs. It can also generate a tone signal for identifying individual cables in bundles or finding the location of a cable break, when used with an Amplifier Probe (not included).
The tester is equipped to give proper test results for RJ45 cables wired for EIA/TIA-568A, EIA/TIA-568B (AT&T-258A), 10BASE-T, and Token Ring. The manual shows proper test results for each type of cable and gives examples of failure indications.
Compact and easy to use, this cable tester is appropriate for everyone, from the home network DIYer to the IT professional. Order before midnight tonight and get a 9 volt alkaline battery, zippered nylon carrying case, metal belt clip, 6" BNC jumper cable, and 50-ohm BNC terminator with each tester!
Note that the instructions included with this device do not indicate how to enable Tone mode. To enable Tone mode, press and hold the Fault Check/Tone button for about 5 seconds, until the Tone light illuminates. You can then connect the RJ45 cable and check for the tone using a Probe, such as the ones included with PID 8132 and PID 8134.
WARNING!!! Do not test live circuits as it could cause damage to the tester unit or personal injury.
