How long of a run/cable will it test?

Answers

Will this trace wires behind drywall?

Asked by Kevin May 20, 2021
1
Answer

The Pro Tone and Probe Kit is not designed to test through a wall. It is designed for probe contact with the cable being toned. Depending on the thickness of the drywall and proximity of the cable to the drywall, it may work, but that is not the design criteria.

Does this work on electrical cables like #14,12,10, or bigger ?

Asked by Sosas April 29, 2021

Answer

The Tone and Probe Pro tones down any two wire or single wire with a ground wire. The LAN Explorer only tests data cables terminated with RJ45 or RJ11 connectors.

Can I use this tool to trace coaxial cable.

Asked by Manny October 20, 2020
2
Answers

Yes but remember that it was not designed to be a tracer. It is designed to find the other end of the cable at a termination station. I traced my broken electrical wire with it (with power disconected of course) and if the wire gets too far back from the wall you start getting false signals or lose signal. That being said, it did work. The fluke tracer is much stronger but is way more money. I don't mean a little more. I mean hundreds more. If you are patient and can think in logical routes this can do the job but no guarentee. It is not what it was designed for.

can this tester read and test CAT 7 and CAT 8 network cable??

A well built tool that is simple to use. It gives you a clear indication as to the condition of your cables. Have used it over several hundred feet of cable and had great results. Another good Klein product!

If you are making and crimping your own Ethernet cables, or installing keystone jacks or patch panels, this tool is a handy time saver to verify the RJ45 termination. It's incredibly simple: Just plug one end of the cable in the main tester port and the other end of the cable in the "Remote" port, and press the single Test button. There's only one button on the tester: TEST, so it couldn't be easier. It automatically turns on, and automatically turns off. If the cable is fine, a green light will appear in the PASS area at the top of the tester. If there's an issue with the wire, one of the three red lights will turn on in the FAULT section. The tool feels solid and made of high quality plastic. The Remote unit is very small, and handily clips into the bottom of the main Tester. The Tester has a 9V battery installed already, so you can start testing immediately. I don't work with RJ11/12 and fortunately have never needed to terminate phone lines, so I didn't test those ports, but it does support RJ11 connectors as well if you need to test those. The tester includes a fairly comprehensive instruction sheet, including several wiring diagrams. It's a very reasonably priced tester, and if you are making lots of cables or terminating long wiring runs, it's a good investment.

I was involved in a data center installation about 20 years ago. I wish we had one of these back then because the electrician wired all the network cabling wrong. He took the position that it was up to us to prove it. It required hundreds of man hours to correct & delayed the project by several weeks. This is an easy to use tool for testing network & phone wiring/connections. The 'remote' is nothing more that a reflector (I thought is was something like a TV remote), but makes the validation very easy.

The Klein LAN Explorer Cable tester is an extremely easy to use cable tester. It is designed to test RJ45 network cables as well as RJ11 and RJ12 phone cables. The remote is stored in the handle and can easily be removed and attached on the far end of the cable to be tested. There is a green pass/fail light, as well as if there is a fault it will designate between a miswire, an open , or a short. It uses a 9V battery, which is included. This is a necessity for anyone that tests network or phone cabling, especially if they are creating their own. I would definitely recommend it!
