Customer Questions & Answers

Does it check Cable lenght?

Asked by: Akin
Yes
Answered by: MagicB
Date published: 2017-01-18

Can the tool be used to determine which cable has a signal?

We have lots of cables entering into a common location but the main cable is not marked. I need to determine which one has the signal.
Asked by: JDM
All testing is static, only wire testing, not a signal analyzer.

Can you use it to test using just one end of the wire?

Asked by: David
No, a transmitter is plugged in one end and the tester on the other.

can this tell you how far into the cable a short is or just that it has a short?

Asked by: jriker
No. Just that there is a short. You need time domain reflectometry to tell where a short (or open) is located and while that is available in more expensive test equipment you won't find it in this price range.

One of these, or a similar product, is absolutely essential if you are doing any network wiring particularly if, as I am, you are color blind or even if you are not. Reverse two wires or make a poor connection with one or short a couple and the display shows you which you have bobbled. Also great for trouble shooting a system once it is installed. For example you can check an ethernet cable just by plugging the two ends into the tester. I installed telephone and computer networks in new construction in my house in Canada this summer and was so impressed with how useful this tester was that I bought a second one for my house in the US.

I used this product over the last two weeks and nearly everytime I got the same error when testing Cat6 cables I made. I know I am not perfect, but making these cables is pretty straightforward and not brain surgery. There were instances when the device said I made a working cable, but then told me later on when I tested the same cable that it was bad. I don't know how this can be, but I tested the cable and it did work. All this to say I wonder how many cables I made that were really bad that the stupid tester was wrong about. Waste of time as far as I am concerned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fine Product The Scout Pro 2 Tester Kit saved me when I was in a pinch. I needed this to help map cables, but mainly to determine if CAT6 cables were wired correctly and in the correct order. This unit worked perfectly for the task I was involved in. Also, the large digital readout give you information that you can read and understand. I'd recommend to professionals as well as any A/V, Network armature that has the gall to install your own home network.

The product performed as expected and it was nice to not have to trace down 100 ports one at a time to the 1st floor patch panels. Having the 5 ports with numbers worked very well. The only thing I wish is that I could add on more port finders but that unfortunately is not a feature available to this product. That being said, this was easy to use and saved a lot of time and legwork.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Klein tool I bought this tool for an emergency repair work and it's served me well findings open pair/ shorts in the cable and identifying wall jacks from the patch panel. This device work great for home environment but for a larger scale environment I would invest in the Fluke Link-runner to maximize your workload.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice tester for DIY network and CCTV installation My home wired network has 15 devices and 5 switches, and I have cats that chew on exposed cables, so I wanted a tool that would diagnose connection problems and identify cable runs. I'm also considering installing a CCTV system, so video testing and identification would be a plus. This Klein meter met my requirements perfectly. Continuity testing and identification for video are both done with the CoaxMap Location ID remote - a small push-on device with a male F-connector that has an ID number that is displayed on the meter.. To test continuity for phone or data, you connect one end of the cable to the tester and the other end of the cable to the "self-storing remote". This is a small yellow box that snaps into the bottom of the meter for storage. The continuity test is comprehensive, showing the pin connection on each end as well as detecting open and shorted connections. To identify a data cable, a LanMap Location ID remote is connected to the far end. This is a small yellow device with a RJ45 male connector and an ID number that is displayed on the meter. You can have data and video cables connected at the same time and the ID numbers displayed on the meter will alternate. Pressing one of the function buttons (voice, video, data, tone, ID) turns it on. For the voice and data functions, it automatically turns off in 20 seconds unless you hold the function button for 3 seconds, in which case it turns "LOOP ON", which keeps the power on until the O/ID button is pressed, or it will auto-power off after 5 minutes. The battery life is approximately 425 hours. The video F-connector at top of meter is male, with an exposed center connector that can be bent when the meter is stored. I'm going to leave the included female-to-female (barrel) adapter attached to protect it. This kit includes 5 RJ45 male ID plugs, 5 male push-on F-connector ID plugs, and one barrel connector. A 9 volt battery is included, but not a case. If you want to use it for a CCTV installation that uses BNC video connectors instead of F connectors, you'll need a BNC female to F-connector female adapter, which is not included. The tone function requires an analog tone probe, which is not included. There are several options for tone generation, including frequency, pattern, and which data wires the tones are placed on. The manual is comprehensive and nicely illustrated.
