“The Net Prowler combines physical layer and link network testing, IP device address mapping, cable troubleshooting and PoE voltage testing in a handheld tester with a full-color display, all with the capability of saving and printing test results from a personal computer,” explains George Jang, Platinum Tools' product manager.
According to the company, the full-featured Net Prowler tester measures cable length using TDR technology, and generates tone levels for signal tracing and cable identification on all pairs, a selected pair, or a selected pin. The unit also enables quick identification of a network drops link capability and current link status. Net Prowler also tests the presence of PoE on the network drop and what class of PoE per IEEE 802.3 af/at with load test for voltage drop.
These network tests can also be saved for record keeping and printing using the companion software application. “The Net Prowler provides full cable testing on any category network, coax, or telephone cable," adds Platinum's Jang. "It will display wire map, numbered ID remotes, and any faults, including shorts, opens, miswires, split pairs, and reverses.”
The Net Prowler Pro Test Kit (P/N TNP850K1) is now shipping. A tester only kit (P/N TNP700) is also available.
