When a LAN connection fails you can swap out the cable to see if it is the problem or you can reach for the Tech Choice LAN Quicker 009! This cable tester is designed to troubleshoot RJ45 LAN cables both UTP and STP. It not only tells you if the cable passes or fails the test it indicates which pins fail and whether they are open shorted or crossed. This allows you to easily see if the cable is your problem and what you need to do to fix it if it is.
The tester has two basic testing modes: Auto and Step.
In auto mode it makes a single pass over the cable and gives a result. It shows whether the cable passed or failed and if it failed the type of failure (open short or cross) and the affected pins/wires.
In step mode the tester steps through each wire independently with each press of the Test button. This allows you to get detailed results for a cable that may have multiple types of failures. For example you can see that pin 1 is open pins 2 and 3 are crossed and that pin 4 is shorted.
