Platinum Tools® Announces New VDV MapMaster™ 3.0 Cable Tester Kit; Now Available

NEWBURY PARK, Calif., Dec. 20, 2018 – Platinum Tools® (, the leader in solutions for the preparation, installation, hand termination and testing of wire and cable, is proud to announce the launch of the new Cable Tester Kit for its award-winning VDV MapMaster™ 3.0. Now available, the kit (p/n T130K4) has an MSRP of $349.95 and is designed for installers of Ethernet and coax networks.

The T130K4 kit is contained in a durable plastic case (p/n 4082) with an EVA foam insert to hold all components in place, with additional places to hold up to eight test and map Smart Remotes in case the installer has already purchased them or plans to do so.

“The T130K4 kit includes not only the popular mapping-only ID network remotes (#1-#12), but also includes test and map coax ID remotes (#1-#8),” explained John Phillips, Platinum Tools, Inc. product manager. “Along with cable adapters for different coax connectors, the kit also includes two no-fault RJ12-to-RJ12 patch cables for testing voice cables, two 5-inch shielded patch cables, and an RJ45-to-alligator clips cable for toning two wire cables.”

The VDV MapMaster™ 3.0 combines continuity testing, mapping, generating tones and length measurement functions into a single easy-to-use unit for installation, troubleshooting, and maintenance for telco, network, or coax cable. It features a Link Light function typically found in higher end testers that allows blinking of the LED in a connected port to identify which port the cable is connected to. The back-lit display, glow-in-the dark keypad and a built-in flashlight helps you to work in the dark.

“Whether your jobs are professional, commercial, or residential, the versatility and added features of the VDV MapMaster 3.0 makes it a best value cable verifier for the professional installer,” added Phillips. “And now, this is the ideal, complete kit.”
