Product Highlights
  • Probe Detects AC and Acts as Flashlight
  • Tests Cat 5/6 Cables to TIA568 Specs
  • Tests for Opens/Shorts and Continuity
  • Tests for Reversals and Split Pairs
  • Tests Coax Cable
  • Sends Tone to Trace Cables

The CTX200P Pocket CAT and Tone Probe Kit from Byte Brothers enables you to test RJ45 and Coax cables, as well as trace the location of cable connections. Cat 5 and Cat 6 cables are tested for continuity, opens/shorts, reversals, and split pairs to meet TIA568 specifications. The Pocket CAT features a removable remote that makes it possible to test both long and short cables. The RJ45 remote slides into an integrated drawer for easy storage. A Coax remote is included as well. The Pocket CAT displays Pass/Fail results in one second, and it can also generate tone.

The included inductive toning probe features a built-in speaker and a volume control, and can be used to trace the tone generated by the Pocket CAT. A bright LED on the insulated tip of the probe acts as a flashlight, which can be useful when searching for cable connections in dark areas. The probe is designed to filter out unwanted hum, so you can more clearly locate the tone being sent from the generator.
