Can the PentaScanner measure / test Category 5e?

The last PentaScanner left the factory back on March 31, 2004. We regret to say support ended March 31, 2008. It's replaced by the Versiv familly of testers
 
No. 
 
Category 5e and higher requires ACR-F and PS ACR-F; the PentaScanner is not capable of making these measurements. If all you need to do is to qualify that your existing links will support 1000BASE-T, the CableIQ may be a better choice.
