PLATINUM LAN SEEKER CABLE

TEST TONE GENERATOR

Overview

The LanSeeker is a fast, rugged cable tester and tone

generator in one unit. It displays cable test results using LED indicators on

the mainand remote unit. An easy-to-use professional grade tool, the

LanSeeker is a must have for residential and commercial cable installers.

 





When the unit senses a connection between the main and remote

unit, the battery-saving auto-on feature initiates test results within

2 seconds. The tester automatically powers off within 5 seconds

of the cable being disconnected. LanSeeker tests for shorts,

opens, miswires, reversals, and split pairs and can display

connection and fault information on a pair-by-pair basis. It

also generates audio tones for use with tone tracers on all pairs.

 

Key Features

• Displays cable test results on main and remote units in less than 2

seconds

 

• Immediately detects shorts by just plugging in one end of a cable to

the tester

 

• Identifies shorts, opens, miswires, reversed and split pairs

 

• No on/off switch, automatically starts test when a connection is

sensed between main and remote unit

 

• Debug mode diagnoses and displays faults one pair at a time

 

• Includes tone generator

 

• Self-stored remote
