Absolutely essential piece of gear for setting up live sound in a hall. The time to find a bad cable is on the ground-- not after it's installed!

Simple and easy

I run a nonprofit. We do weekly live stream music performances to raise funds for our organization. With the large pile of cables it takes to run this show, including audio and video production, this tester provides serious peace of mind to ensure everything is working properly prior to going live. It's super easy to use and tests nearly every cable we use, from ethernet to SDI to XRL to 1/4. I highly recommend this product.

Works fine

Wish it had a BNC cable test point. Though if you put a BNC to RCA phone adapter, you can test BNC cables.

No more guessing work

Very easy to identify faulty line of XLR cable. I whish I had the tester when I worked as a sound engineer for my Church - when I took over the position, there were tons of dead XLR cables that I could have traced faulty line easily if I had this tool.

Can i use this to test lighting dmx cables?
Asked by: Debola
Yes, the answer to most questions about this device is, any cables that you can physically plug both ends of into the tester, sometimes even with converters, will be testable. it doesn't test "protocols" or "software level" communication - it simply tests that the wires are connected and configured properly physically, by letting you test every separate internal wire individually.

This cable tester can be used for USB 3 cables which are type-A to type-B. It will only test the cables ability to send signal from A-B, not data rates or speeds.
