“We analyzed what a field technician would need to carry for the variety of jobs that he has to do and came up with a kit that include accessories to augment and optimize the value of the highly acclaimed Cable Prowler Color Display Tester,” explained George Jang, Platinum Tools product manager. “Kitted together with different adapters in a hard-shell carrying case, the Cable Prowler Pro Test Kit offers the professional installer a complete and versatile solution at a significantly reduced price than if each component was purchased separately.”

“Ideal for the custom install and integrator market, the Cable Prowler provides full cable testing, displaying wire map, numbered ID remotes, and determining any faults, including shorts, opens, miswires, split pairs, and reverses,” explained Jang. “It also enables quick identification of a network drops link capability and current link status. All in full color and with internal memory to save results, as well as the ability to export to a computer via micro USB cable for record keeping and printing. All test results can be exported in a spreadsheet or a graphic format.”

The full-featured Cable Prowler measures cable length using TDR technology and generates tone levels for signal tracing and cable identification on all pairs, a selected pair, or a selected pin. “All of this displayed in a bright color graphical display for easy viewing in any environment,” added Jang. “Cable Prowler also has the ability to name each cable.”

For security and powered networking applications, the Cable Prowler detects the presence of PoE on the network drop and what class of PoE per IEEE 802.3 af/at with load test for voltage drop. As with the other tests, these results can also be saved and exported for record keeping.
