    PCE Instruments 170 CB Cable Detector

    # 170 CB

    • The locating device is a universally applicable measuring device. With this locating device, for example, RJ11 ISDN telephone lines can be checked for their function. For this purpose it is sufficient to connect the RJ 11 plug of the locating device to the telephone socket.
    • The locator instantly shows the operator if this port is connected. A ringing test is also possible with the locating device. For this, the connection must be called via an external telephone.
    • Another function of the locating device is the testing of LAN connections in sockets. In this test method, the locating device indicates a short circuit, incorrect wiring, “reversed” or “split pairs”.
