Platinum Tools Cable Prowler Cable Tester
The Cable Prowler™ combines network testing (physical layer and link), cable verification & troubleshooting and PoE voltage testing in a handheld tester with a full-color display; all with the capability of saving and printing tests results from a personal computer.
Cable Verification & Troubleshooting:
The Cable Prowler provides full cable testing on any category network, coax, or telephone cable. It will display wire map, numbered ID remotes, and any faults, including shorts, opens, miswires, split pairs, and reverses, The full-featured Cable Prowler measures cable length (using TDR technology) and generates tone levels for signal tracing and cable identification on all pairs, a selected pair, or a selected pin.
PoE Voltage Testing:
The Cable Prowler enables quick identification of a network drops link capability and current link status. Cable Prowler also tests the presence of PoE on the network drop and what class of PoE per IEEE 802.3 af/at with load test for voltage drop. These network tests can also be saved for record keeping and printing.
