Promising Review:

“Been in network engineering for some time. This is a pretty good set of all the tools that are needed for anything networking related. Multimeter works great, good set of crimpers as well. Cable tester works fine, no issues so far with any of the tools. Also case was a fabric case and seems to be pretty solid so far. Worth the extra price as compared to similar kits.

#5-Fluke Networks MS2-TTK MicroScanner2 Network Cabling Tool Tester Kit with Punch Down Tool and Tone Generator and Probe

 

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 test ports support virtually any type of low voltage cable testing with no need for awkward adapters. That means faster, more comprehensive troubleshooting and installations than ever before.
