The Platinum Tools Cable Prowler Cable Tester provides full cable testing on any category network, coax, or telephone cable. It combines the functions of a high-end cable tester and cable length measurement tester. It has the capability to identify link status, link capability, and PoE detection. All of this is displayed in a full color graphical display and it has an internal memory to save, download, and output results.
This tester displays full color graphical wire-mapping, numbered ID remotes for network and telephone cables, and any faults including shorts, opens, miswires, split pairs, and reverses. The Cable Prowler measures cable length using TDR (Time Domain Reflectometry) technology and generates tone levels for signal tracing and cable identification on all pairs, a selected pair, or a selected pin. All of this is displayed in a full color graphical display for easy viewing in any environment.
The Cable Prowler also has the ability to name each cable and save all test results. Furthermore, the generated cable results can be exported to a computer via a micro USB cable for record keeping and printing.
The Cable Prowler enables quick identification of network drops, link capabilities, and current link status. It also detects the presence of PoE on the network drop and what class of PoE per IEEE 802.3 af/at with load test for voltage drop. These network tests can also be saved for record keeping and printing.
