MicroScanner™ Cable Verifier Series
Industry economics require that installations be done fast and accurately with little to no callbacks. And converging voice, data, and video technologies as well as the ever growing “Internet of Things” has given rise to new requirements for service testing and multimedia support.
The MicroScanner™ Series acknowledges these growing trends and streamlines every aspect of the verification job. From its time-saving user interface and integrated multimedia support to its expanded service detection capabilities, MicroScanner2 and MicroScanner PoE give technicians the power to perform their jobs faster and more accurately than ever.

Troubleshoot PoE based systems
The MicroScanner PoE makes testing your PoE based communication cabling fast, easy, and clear. The tester reports the maximum power class the switch can provide under 802.3af, 802.3at, and 802.3bt specifications and displays the 802.3 PoE class (0-8) or the voltage from passive PoE sources. This allows technicians to verify the exact issues that may be affecting a PoE based installation. The MicroScanner PoE also provides information on available services up to 10G Ethernet ensuring that your network is capable of performing to your needs.
Verify cables and connections
Today’s communications technicians have more problems to deal with than just the cabling. They have to rule out a whole host of cable and service issues before determining the cause of a connectivity problem. Where is the cable broken? Are all the wires properly terminated? Is there a switch at the far end? Is PoE available? MicroScanner2 and MicroScanner PoE provides technicians the vision to verify today’s most common voice, data, and video services.
Reduce test time and user error
Yesterday’s cable verification testers force users to toggle between different modes (up to four) to view all test results. This not only slows the test process, but also causes user frustration and error. MicroScanner Series has defied this convention by displaying key test results – wiremap, pair lengths, distance to fault, cable ID, and far-end devices – all on one screen.
Locate elusive cables in seconds
The MicroScanner Series 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. Or, use analog mode on voice-grade cabling (Cat 3 and below), as well as coax (MicroScanner2 only), security/alarm, and speaker wiring.
Repair or replace tools less often
With all the abuse you put your tools through, you can’t afford for them to be delicate. The MicroScanner Series features a rubber wrap-around holster that makes it the right tool for even the toughest jobs. Toss it into your toolbox. Drop it from a ladder. It can handle it. It even comes standard with a vinyl carry pouch for enhanced protection and convenience. The optional MAG-KIT (included with selected models noted below) provides a powerful magnetized strap that lets you hang your MicroScanner from racks, cable trays or organizers.
