Does this tester test shield cable

Asked by: MrTlr
Yes, the wire plugs in (RJ45 and smaller) so shielding doesn't matter. The little block on the bottom is a loop-back block, so obviously you need to access both ends. You cannot test a cable that is plugged into a device because it will just return a "Short" hope this helps

Klein Tools VDV LAN Scout Jr. Tester is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 69.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 Star Review Rating provided by a verified purchaser

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great investment in an excellent tool! I bought this tester for a project at my house where I installed Ethernet wiring throughout the house. I used it to test my final connections between two points. Being my first time terminating Ethernet, I thought it wise to invest in this tool to verify my work was done properly. I'm glad I did! It helped me confirm that I had everything pinned out correctly and displayed a message of "pass" on the screen when evrything was correct. Helped me quickly identify if I had a problem somewhere, which I did a time or two. Well worth the $50! As other reviewers said, it works quickly too. Seems well built and durable too. I plan to make patch cables next, and plan to use it to verify that they will work. I opted for his model, versus the more expensive Klein models, since I only needed to use it on Ethernet wiring. My only tip for use is that you need a spare patch cable (not included) if you need to test a female connection, so that you can connect the remote or the tester to it. I highly recommend this product to anyone who wants to test their wiring installations, or to test existing wiring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Found my stupid mistake in less than a minute I've made a number of ethernet cables without a tester before, but after two failed attempts to make a 100 footer, I broke down and bought this tool to figure out what was wrong. Within seconds, it told me what the problem was: I had wired one end of the cable exactly backwards, making it a crossover cable instead of a straight cable. I must be getting old and senile, but now that I have this tool, I can continue pretending that I know what I'm doing for a few more years. I realize that there are cheaper testers out there, but I don't think they would have diagnosed this particular problem so exactly. The display shows exactly how the two cable ends are connected, which is bound to be a huge time-saver in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should have bought this a long time ago This was exactly what i wanted. Good quality and simple. This found my network problem in about 5 minutes. I had been pulling my hair out for a week. There a cheaper ones on the internet but this one feels like it will last. It was simple, i didn't even have to read the instructions. It will be a new permanent addition to my networking tool bag.
