Overview

Streamline verification testing
The MicroScanner2 Cable Verifier presents a revolutionary change in voice, data, and video cable testing. It starts by taking results from what was four different test modes and displaying them all at once – graphical wiremap, pair lengths, distance to fault, cable ID, and far end device.  What’s more, its integrated RJ11, RJ45, and coax cable test ports support virtually any type of low-voltage cable testing with no need for awkward adapters.  The end result is reduced test time and technician error.  That makes high-quality installations more efficient than ever. 

Rule out service problems fast
Today’s communications technicians have a lot more problems to deal with than just the cabling.  They have to rule out a whole host of potential cable and service issues before determining the cause of a connection problem.  Is there telephone voltage?  What’s the polarity?  Is there an Ethernet switch at the far end?  Is PoE available?  MicroScanner2 acknowledges this, giving technicians high power vision to verify today’s most common voice, data, and video services.   That means faster, more comprehensive troubleshooting.

"I work in many of the Shopping Malls in the Pacific Northwest. Never have I found a more cut and spliced together network environment than a Mall. The MicroScanner² Cable Verifier shows me the pair that has been cut and gives me the distance to that cut so I can go repare that copper line. Saves me hours every time I use it. It is part of any standard field kit I have."

Features

Revolutionary Interface

Yesterday’s cable verification testers force users to toggle between up to four different modes of operation to view all test results.  This not only slows the test process, but also causes frustration and leads to high user error rates.  MicroScanner2 has defeated this convention by displaying key test results – wiremap, pair lengths, distance to fault, cable ID, and far end device – all on one screen.  Plus it features an oversized, backlit LCD screen with the power to display wiremap results graphically, which brings unprecedented comfort and clarity to the user experience.

Multimedia Support

Tired of losing or breaking all the adapters needed for testing the various voice, data, and video media types?  MicroScanner2 makes these awkward adapters things of the past with built-in RJ11, RJ45, and coax support.  Both the main unit and the far-end identifiers can be used to test telephone jacks, Ethernet jacks, and CATV outlets right out of the box.  Just one more way MicroScanner2 streamlines cable verification.

IntelliTone Toning

MicroScanner2 features built-in IntelliTone digital and analog toning to precisely locate virtually any cable or wire pair, regardless of work environment.  Use digital mode to locate high-grade data cabling (Cat 5e/6/6a) in bundles, or at switches, patch panels, or wall outlets.  Digital mode especially performs in environments with high data, RF, or electromagnetic interference.  When coupled with the IntelliTone 200 Pro Probe, it can also be used to verify cable wiremap from either the tester end or the probe end. 

Use analog mode on voice-grade cabling (Cat 3 and below), as well as coax, security/alarm, and speaker wiring.  These cables are optimized for lower frequency transmissions, and therefore are more easily isolated with a low-frequency tone.  MicroScanner2’s smart analog tone eliminates frustrating guesswork locating individual wire pairs during installations by changing songs each time the pair under test is shorted together.  This provides technicians a decisive way to identify individual wire pairs before punching them down or when diagnosing voice transmission problems.


 

VDV Service Detection

Voice, data, video technicians have a lot more problems to deal with than just the cabling.  They have to rule out a whole host of potential cable and service issues before determining the cause of a connection problem.  MicroScanner2 acknowledges this, giving technicians high power vision to detect today’s most common service problems.   Detect the presence of POTS voltage and verify polarity.  Verify powered 10/100/1000 Ethernet switches at the far end.  Or, confirm proper PoE voltage and pairs.

Rugged Housing

With all the abuse you put your tools through, you can’t afford for them to be delicate.  MicroScanner2 features a rubber wrap-around holster that makes it the right tool for even the toughest jobs.  Toss it into your toolbox.  It can handle it.  Plus, it now comes standard with a vinyl carry pouch for enhanced protection and convenience.
