    Tone Generator w/ Probe Kit

    The Monoprice Pro LAN Tracer/Toner is a professional tool used to test and troubleshoot RJ11 cables and individual wires. It can be used to trace and identify individual wires or cables within a bundle or group and can perform continuity testing.

    The tester is composed of two individual units: the Tone Generator and the Amplifier Probe with sensing tip. Each unit is constructed of plastic and is powered by a 9 volt battery. Two 9 volt alkaline batteries are included in the packaging.

    The Tone Generator has a three position toggle switch, that turns the unit on in Tone or Continuity mode. A metal sheath around the switch prevents it from being accidentally turned on or off. A 3-color LED is used to indicate line polarity, continuity, and phone line condition. The Tone Generator unit has an attached pair of red and black leads with alligator clips, plus an RJ11 4-conductor wire and plug.

    The Amplifier Probe has an adjustable volume control, a speaker, and a 3.5 mm headphone jack. A recessed power/activation press-to-use button prevents the probe from being accidentally powered on or from draining the battery by being left on when not in use.

    The Amplifier Probe is used to detect the presence of the tone sent by the Tone Generator on a wire. This can be used to detect continuity in a single wire and can test for breakage points along a wire's length. Additionally, it can be used to identify individual wires within a bundle.

    Monoprice Tone and Probe industrial review
    After reading other reviews I was somewhat hesitant about getting this for work where I am a low voltage electrician, most reviews were on home used on sub-25 foot cables. Well the other day we pulled a 622 foot two conductor speaker cable in a hospital and I went ahead and tested out my new toner. It worked great, the wand picked up the tone very well on half volume at that distance, I have used Fluke toners that wouldn't even do that. Works great!

    PROS: Works over long distances

    Comes with a bag

    CONS: No alternating tone, just has a single solid tone

    I bought one of these for a new tech I hired and this works great at half the price of similar units.

    PROS: Works as it should

    CONS: Slightly Cheezy, Monoprice Logo

    PROS: Price and quality. Will do what I bought it for.

    CONS: Did not buy it sooner.

    Works as expected
    My house was pre-wired with speaker cables in the living room, which is awesome. Only bad part is, I was not aware of where the speaker wire was run to in the ceiling. Luckily, I knew the termination point of the bundle of speaker wires behind the entertainment center, and using this tool I was able to hook up the tone generator to each cable independently and trace the line through my walls and to the termination points in the ceiling. Once they were found I was able to successfully cut out a hole and install my in ceiling speakers. Worked great for the price and would happily recommend to others if you need to find a cable that's hidden in your drywall.

    The signal tended to be pretty weak, so I'm assuming this wouldn't work well for finding cable through a more dense material, but it worked fine through drywall and a typical wood framed house.

    PROS: Did exactly what I had hoped it would and met expectations, worked well to help find speaker cable through my drywall in the living room.

    CONS: Signal isn't strong enough to go through really dense material, but that's not a problem if you're just finding cables through drywall or similar thickness materials.

    Great tool at 1/2 the price of any other supplier
    You can find this exact same tool under different names all over the internet for $75 to $80. This is the same tool re-branded for Monoprice and it works great. It is small enough to throw in a small tool bag and bring with me anywhere I go. I always have it with me since I never know when I might need it.

    PROS: Small enough to carry around. Easy to use. Multiple connection types

    CONS: The signal is a little weak but that is the compromise at the price.

    I had lost my Harris tone generator at a job site and was shopping for a replacement. I remembered seeing an ad for a new product (tone generator) from Monoprice with a very low price. I ordered it but didn't have high expectations. I've had it now for a couple of months and it works great! I feel that this tone generator is a great value. If I loose this one, I will buy another from Monoprice.

    PROS: Great product and Great price!

    CONS: None
