Platinum Tools, a specialist in the the preparation, installation, hand termination and testing of wire and cable, announce it will showcase the company's newly released LANSeeker Cable Tester (p/n TP500C) during CEDIA Expo 2017, held in San Diego from Sept. 7-9 at the San Diego Convention Center, booth # 4452.

“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 Jason Chesla, Platinum Tools, Inc. marketing manager. “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."

Proper testing is a core concept in CEDIA's Smart Home Recommended Wiring Guidelines.

Made in the USA, the LANSeeker cable tester is now shipping and has an MSRP of $69.95.
