NC-500 NETcat® Pro Wiring Tester

The NETcat® Pro2 is a digital tool for fast, accurate checking of cables, wiring and network service. Operated using a back-lit touch screen display, the NETcat® Pro2 tests wiring continuity and proper pair allocation, measures the length of cables, determines if network service is available and identifies Power over Ethernet (PoE) service. When used with the NC-510 Accessory Kit (rs 736-1848), containing seven (7) expansion remote test modules, the NETcat® Pro2 can uniquely test coax or twisted pair jacks from a central location eight (8) at a time.Using a fingertip or the built-in stylus, the screen can be used to control and display a range of tests from fault finding to TDR length measurement. The display can be set to English, Spanish, French or German language
