Designed Specifically for Network Maintenance Professionals
The CableTracker Network Tone and Probe Kit model CTK1015 is designed for network managers and technicians. Toning an active LAN circuit can disrupt network traffic and is difficult to track due to cable twist and tone bleed. The CableTracker Network Tone and Probe Kit features a Port ID function that blinks the link light verifying cable connectivity. This feature also provides a simple and effective method to identify switch or hub port assignments on active networks. Three different blink rates are provided to ensure compatibility with equipment from a wide range of manufacturers. Traditional toning with two different tone frequencies and patterns is provided for non-active circuit tracing.
Blink the Link Lights to ID Ports
Tone and probe kits were designed for one primary mission; to identify the termination point of a cable. Unfortunately, these were designed for telephony, not network maintenance. Why else would they have RJ-11 plugs? CableTracker is different. CableTracker incorporates 3 link light activation speeds to easily identify user cable termination ports by simply looking for the blinking lights. Why three? Because ethernet switches do not react the same to activation. Three speeds ensures the widest compatibility available.
Easy Ethernet or Telephony Connection
Most toners on the market offer RJ-11 hard-wired modular connection. That’s because they were built for the phone company. This does nothing for the LAN technician and ethernet RJ-45 jacks or patch cords. The CableTracker Network ID Kit was designed to accommodate both ethernet and telephony cabling. Simply connect to the LAN with either the female RJ-45 jack or directly to the wallplate with the included RJ-45 patch cord. The Cabletracker even provides alligator clips for punch down blocks or non-terminated cables.
Time Saving Features with You in Mind
The Cabletracker incorporates several time and money saving features not found on other kits. The RJ-45 male connection and the alligator clips are detachable and commonly available, meaning cord failure won’t obsolete your tester. Auto power down extends battery life and a built-in low battery indicator warns when battery replacement is required, saving unexpected down time searching for batteries. The CableTracker Network Probe Model CT15 incorporates volume control, non-conductive plastic tip, and complete compatibility with existing toners.
