Platinum Tools to debut LANSeeker cable tester, tone generator at 2017 InfoComm

May 18, 2017
The LANSeeker is billed as a "fast, rugged cable tester and tone generator in one unit with detachable remote unit, testing for shorts, opens, miswires, reversals, and split pairs."

Platinum Tools, a specialist in solutions for the preparation, installation, hand termination and testing of wire and cable, announced that it will showcase its new LANSeeker cable tester (model TP500C) during InfoComm 2017, held in Orlando, FL from June 14-16 at the Orange County Convention Center, in the company's booth #1961.

“LANSeeker is a fast, rugged cable tester and tone generator in one unit, displaying cable test results using LED indicators on the main and the self-stored remote unit,” explains Platinum Tools marketing manager Jason Chesla. “An easy-to-use professional grade tool, the LANSeeker is ideal for installation and troubleshooting of twisted-pair security and datacom cables, supporting both unshielded or shielded twisted pair, making it a must have for residential and commercial cable installers.”

According to the company, "the LANSeeker tests for shorts, opens, miswires, reversals, and split pairs and can display connection and fault information on a pair-by-pair basis. It also generates audio tones for use with tone tracers on all pairs. When the unit senses a connection between the main and remote unit, the battery-saving auto-on feature initiates test results within two seconds. The tester automatically powers off within five seconds of the cable being disconnected."

The LANSeeker is the latest addition to the expanding line of professional cable testers from Platinum Tools. Made in the USA, the new tester is now shipping and has an MSRP of $69.95. For more information and additional pricing, visit, call (800) 749-5783, or email [email protected].
