1.    Wiremap adapter or remote ID locator required for complete wiremap testing.

2.    Crosstalk, insertion loss (attenuation), and return loss are tested. For 1000BASE-T, ELFEXT (equal-level far-end crosstalk) is also tested.

3.    The test has no length limit, so the length test always passes.

4.    Wiremap for coaxial cable is shield and conductor continuity.
