Platinum Tools of Camarillo, Calif., launches the VDV MapMaster 2.0 voice, data, and video tester.
Capable of identifying and mapping 19 locations at one time, the product combines cable length measurement with continuity testing, mapping, and tone generator functions into a single unit, according to the company.
The tester uses “length mode” to measure the length of entire cables and its pin pairs and allows for viewing and adjusting the length constant value for video, data, and voice cables. The product tests Cat-6, Cat5e, Cat-5, Cat-4, Cat-3, and coax cables, as well as shielded cables. Video and data cables can be connected to their respective remotes at the same time to improve testing efficiency. Patch cables may be tested without removing the master remote from storage.
