Can it be used on a 50 ohm BNC cable?

Can it be used on a 50 ohm BNC cable?
Asked by: Debbie
The Hosa Technology CBT-500 Audio Cable Tester only specifies the ability to test 75 ohm BNC cables and appears incompatible with 50 ohm BNC.

question

Does this product test combination wires ? example rca to 1/4, or xlr to 1/2 inch ?
Asked by: MICHAEL W.
We have one of these at my work, it'll test any combination. Just yesterday I was checking a mixer for a blown xlr lead... Long story short I used an rca cable to feed to the mixer and an xlr on the receiving end and it tested each pin, actually two grounded to eachother because the Rca isn't a balanced cable... Long story short it will check combination cables. Thinking of getting one for myself because it's a wicked solid investment and built extremely well especially for the price. Cheers!
