Finally, a special tone and probe designed specifically to meet the needs of datacom users! The new Psiber Cable Tracker Tone & Probe Set is designed from the ground up to be used in Network and LAN environments.
Toning an active LAN circuit can disrupt network traffic and is difficult to track due to cable twist and tone bleed. The Psiber Cable Tracker Tone & Probe solves both these problems. Not only can it tone and trace inactive wiring, including highly twisted Cat 5e & Cat 6, but it can also detect and send link activation signals for tracing active drops to a Hub or NIC card!
Designed specifically for network managers and datacom technicians, the Cable Tracker Tone & Probe Kit features a unique Port ID function blinks the link light to identify a connected hub or switch port and provides a simple method to identify switch or hub port assignments on active networks. Three different blink rates ensure compatibility with equipment from a wide range of manufacturers.
When tracing inactive wiring, a unique split pair toning capability allows tone to easily propagate through highly twisted Cat 5e and Cat 6 wiring. In addition, two user selectable audible tone patterns are provided for inactive circuit tracing.
The Psiber Network Toner has a female RJ-45 connector for easy network connection as well as alligator clips for connecting to a punch down block or unterminated cables. The toner also detects wiring shorts with its built-in continuity check. Auto power down extends battery life and a built-in low battery indicator warns when battery replacement is required.
The Psiber Probe incorporates volume control, non-conductive plastic tip, and is fully compatible with traditional toners.
Kit includes Tone & Probe and a Cordura carry case. Shipping weight of this kit is 3 pounds.
