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.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Specialised tool that may be just what you need This is a specialized tool for testing voice, data and video cables. I wish I had owned it a decade ago when I strung my former home with Ethernet and phone and video cable. Now with WiFi, and cordless phones the average homeowner may have less need for it. For professional installers a tool like this is a necessity. I got it for two projects: a remote astronomical observatory and an automated garden system. The instruction are clear, but the most important part is to only test cables that are disconnected from the energizing source, routers, the phone network or your video system. The tool does its job flawlessly, detecting short and open circuits and telling you where the problem is. Attaching plugs to data cables is a fiddly and error prone job and it is great to be able to catch the errors immediately. If you value your time, this is a good investment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid, home tester. This is a review of the Klein Tools VDV Scout Pro 2. The Pro2 cable tester can check RJ-45, RJ11/12 and video (F-Connector) coaxial connections. The Pro2 is a pass/fail type continuity and split-pair tester and is suitable for basic cable testing (voice applications, video, data). The kit includes the tester, a set of F-connector and RJ45 identifiers and the remote block. It lacks some of the features of more expensive meters such as cable length testing, attenuation, and graphical displays. The Pro2 has a tone-generator feature which can be used with an optional probe. The kit also includes remotes which can assist with cable identification. There is no bandwidth test available and can only do basic continuity and pairing tests. Keep this in mind if you plan to test gigabit runs. This device is useful for quick troubleshooting of low-speed applications. It correctly diagnosed an open RJ11 POTS cable and a defective coax run. It did not diagnose an improperly terminated RJ45. In this case, it was wired correctly to the terminator but improperly crimped. This is a useful tool. It is quite easy to use even without referring to a manual. The lack of higher-end features means this is more suitable for home wiring tests. Would recommend it.
