NAB Sneak Peek: Platinum Tools Brings Cable Testers

Computer and IP network handheld troubleshooters to be available

T130 VDV MapMaster 3.0

Platinum Tools plans to delight NAB Show-attending engineers with all sorts of new goodies. Two highlights are the T130 VDV MapMaster 3.0 and the TP500c LanSeeker.

The MapMaster 3.0 is an upgrade to MapMaster 2.0. It tests Cat-7, Cat-6A, Cat-6, Cat-5e, Cat-5, Cat-4, and Cat-3 shielded and unshielded cables, voice and coax cables for continuity, shorts, etc. along with offering mapping of up to 20 locations. Platinum Tools’ Jason Chesla said, “It is the ideal instrument for installation, troubleshooting, and maintenance on telco, network, or coax cable in any situation.”

TP500c LanSeeker

The LanSeeker is a cable tester with an onboard tone generator. It will test for shorts, opens, miswires, reversals, and split pairs and can display connection and fault information on a pair-by-pair basis. It also generates audio tones for use with tone tracers on all pairs.

Platinum Tools Product Manager George Jang said, “The LanSeeker is ideal for installation and troubleshooting of twisted pair security and datacom cables, supporting both unshielded or shielded twisted pair, making it a must have for residential and commercial cable installers.”
