Next generation MicroScanner verifies voice/data/video cable and services with a revolutionary user interface.
The MicroScanner2 Cable Verifier presents a revolutionary change in voice, data, and video cable testing. It starts by taking results from what was four different test modes and displaying them all at once graphical wiremap, pair lengths, distance to fault, cable ID, and far end device. What's more, its integrated RJ11, RJ45, and coax test ports support virtually any type of low-voltage cable testing with no need for awkward adapters. The end result is reduced test time and technician error. That makes high-quality installations more efficient than ever.
Worthwhile Tool Investment
This review is from: Fluke Networks MS2-100 MicroScanner2 Cable Verifier
Pros: This tool has become a pretty important one is my toolbox. I've previously used the economical continuity "dumb" testers to verify cables, but they didn't work as well for anything past the basic verification of a cable's basic functionality. This little guy tells you specifics about each pair, what kind of device might be plugged in on the other side of the cable, and all kinds of other stuff. It can also be used as a tone sender if you're trying to ID cables in a bundle.
Cons: Tone sender works with a generic tone picker-upper, but not as well as it would with the Fluke Intellitone. It's got a premium price compared to some competitors.
Other Thoughts: Jumping from a basic cable tester that only tells continuity to this unit has been very beneficial for me, saving lots of time and effort in doing my job. I know there are other companies out there that make similar tools for less, but Fluke is a brand that I've used for years and I was willing to pay the premium for it.
