Product Overview

The 62-200 LinkMaster is a basic wiremapper for identifying wiring and continuity errors in twisted pair cabling. Wiremappers are used to verify if the cable is physically terminated properly at both ends and that there are no major cable defects present in the cable, such as cut conductors, that would prevent signal continuity. Colored LED lights identify pass or fail conditions of each pair of wires in RJ-45 8 conductor cables. When the test is activated, LinkMaster checks each pair of the cable for any opens (unterminated or cut conductors), shorts (cut or nicked conductors that come into contact), miswires (wires out of order - not consistent at both ends), reversals (one pair miswired), split pairs (wired correctly but using wrong conductor order and grouping). Single button operation simplifies the use of the LinkMaster. Includes main test unit and remote unit.
  • Designed for Cat 3,5,5e,6,6a cables
  • RJ-45 interface for 8 conductor twisted pair cables
  • LED based wiremapper verifies cable continuity
  • Identifies errors by pair: shorts, opens, miswires, reversals and split pairs
  • Tests for shield continuity
  • Debug feature cycles through errors one at a time
  • LED green or red lights helps pass or fail visibility in darker locations

Pretty nice tester and it works fine and easy to read. The only CON is that it is a bit pricey and doesn't come with a case. You can get similar testers online a lot cheaper that come with a zip pouch. I purchased an Extech zip case to store it in.

    The Ideal LinkMaster Wiremapper and tester is an excellent tool for testing Ethernet cables. If you make your own cables you will want to test them before they are put into service. This tool can quickly tell you if you have properly wired to T568A or T568B specifications. I own a previous version of this product which used a hard to find A544 battery. This newer model uses four LR44 coin cell batteries which are much easier to acquire. The product is very easy to use. Plug your cable into Main and Remote units and press the Test button. If your cable is properly wired you will see four green LEDs on the pair designations (for 10-Base T or Token Ring only two green lights appear as they each use only two pair). Faults are shown with Red LEDs for Short, Miswire, Reversal and Split Pair. You can also use Debug mode by holding down the Test button. In this mode each pair is tested in sequence instead of all at once. The pair light in illuminated two times and a corresponding fault light will also illuminate to indicate the type of fault on that pair. Additionally if a different pair light occurs on the second illumination, it is an indication of a miswire condition between the pair first illuminated and the pair illuminated second. This is a simple to use and accurate tester at a decent price point. It is a good match for those who make a few cables or need to test wire runs from time to time.

    Indispensable tool
    Great tool for checking your network lines. Couldn't do my job without it. They last a long time. This is my second set. You do have to change batteries occasionally.

    Super simple and fast
    I've used several types of rj45 continuity testers over the years for work and this one is my favorite. 1st of it's super fast. Many testers light up each pin 1 at a time. This one quick tests all 8 and gives you nearly instant feedback on if the termination is correct or not and what's wrong if it isn't right. That alone is worth the price. When you have a lot of terminations to test, speed saves time and money. 2nd it's super simple to use. There is one button on the transmitter side and the visual feedback comes back to the transmitter side. I had a tester that you had to press the test button on one end and walk to the other end to see the results. Again time saver. If I'm working alone and don't have a buddy to help read the other end it can make for some very long testing sessions. I also appreciate the 1 button operation. It's also reliable like all my other Ideal gear. Well worth the price.
