The unit combines (A). Fast test mode – displays the passed cable type, ID or a faulty cable in a second. (B). Pin-to-pin testing mode – includes continuity, open, shorts, miswire, shielding and pin configuration under both Auto Scan or STep Scan mode. (C). Learn/Quick test mode with memory capacity for testing quantity standard or custom cables for PASS/FAIL a snap, they’ve been able to speed its testing time.


(D). Tone mode generates 2 able tones for use with Net Probe (PR-06P) for cable tracing. (E). Hub blink/link mode for locating an active Ethernet Port.  If an Ethernet link is active on the cable, the tester will turn on it Link’s LED and begin flashing the link indicator port on Hub or switch at the other end, if no connection is made, the Link LED unlit.
