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.
