Coax Mapper (8-Way) (Ideal)
Ideal Industries
The 8 way coaxial cable mapper is designed to find and identify multiple coax cables. It is a hand-held device for CATV and security system installers who test multi-run coax systems terminated with F-connectors, or those who wish to map runs to a central point. It can be used to put a tone signal on a coax cable. This unit comes with eight numbered individual remote terminators and a padded case with a belt clip. It’s ideal for mapping coax installations.   Click here for a replacement terminators/caps.
CABLE IDENTIFICATION SYSTEM Coaxial Cable identification system for MDU applications. Helpful to determine cables beginning and ending points. All is needed is a volt-ohm meter to send an electrical signal.   • ID up to 20 coax locations • Easy to use with any Volt-ohm meter (not included)  
Tone & Probe
Designed specifically for the CATV industry, this kit allows you to tone through splitters, directional couplers and traps. Simple to use, the 402K provides accurate results and will eliminate long delays trying to figure out non-tagged or mis-tagged cable drops. Kit includes one transmitter, one receiver, one male F-to-F connector adapter cable, one male F-to-alligator clip adapter cable and a carrying case. Transmitter and receiver are equipped with female F-connectors. Three methods of signal reception: electrostatic pickup for non-terminated cables, electromagnetic pickup for terminated or shorted cables and direct connection when identifying in the presence of passive devices. In continuity mode, provides both audible tone and LED display. Identifies the presence of AC or DC voltage on the cable under test. Four selectable tone outputs for multiple line identification.
Mapper (Cat5)
Ideal Industries
Designed to test installed twisted pair wiring. Tests unshielded and shielded modular plugs. Main unit and remote allow one person testing.
Multi-line Identifier (8 cap)
Labor Saving Devices, Inc.
The Identify-Zit™ multifunction wire identifier is a simple to use troubleshooting tool designed for the high density installer or systems contractor who does not always have an assistant or helper on site. This tool can identify up to 32 different wire runs at the same time, without the need for a two man crew. Simply attach the appropriate Identify-Zit™ Cap (BNC, F, RJ-11, RJ-45, etc.) to one end of each wire run (up to 32 runs) and attach the “decoder” to the opposite end and the number on the cap will appear on the decoder display screen. The Identify-Zit also checks for continuity and will display “CC” (for closed circuit) if there is a “shorted” connection, “OC” for a failed connection/open circuit, or “OO” if there is too much resistance on the line. The Identify-Zit™ Identifier saves enormous time, particularly when testing multi-line high density panel or rack installations. /n The Identify-Zit™ Identifier comes pre-packaged in a protective hard case in one of five different base applications: (1) Wire; (2) Coax; (3) BNC; (4) Telephone; or (5) CAT-5. In each base application, the kit can be ordered with either 8, 16, 24 or 32 caps for that specific application. For maximum versatility, order your base kit in the application you install most. Order additional caps for other applications so that you can use your Identify-Zit™ Identifier in all your installation jobs. All kits come with IDZ Decoder
Coax Clarifier / Mapper
T3 Innovation
Coax Mapper: Test, Map, Profile and Qualify "Dark" Coax Cable Networks Dark unpowered coax systems give no clue as to their design, condition or configuration. The new Coax Clarifier™ by T3 Innovation makes it simple and easy to discern the layout of a coax network, locate faults on individual cable runs, identify remotes through splitters, and determine cable run length. In addition, separate cable mapper sets allow a technician to map out the entire coax system and measure the quality and characterization of the overall network for carrying services, such as high grade video, surveillance data and HD programming. Fast testing using multiple coax mapper remote sets Quickly discover coax system layout configuration to save time All testing in one unit: Discovery, Quality and Condition Clear concise measurement display for easy understanding of the capability of each run
Cable Fault Finder (TS90)
Fluke / Harris
TS90 Cable Fault Finder Fluke TDR cable fault finder. Measures distance to fault up to 2,500 feet away.    • Instantly measures distance to open or any fault from one end of any cable pair • Patented SmartTone® tone generator positively identifies pair • Measures cable distance on spool • Measures constantly while 'on' • Displays distance reading rather than waveform • Large LED screen • High voltage detection • Moisture proof • One-button operation   This easy-to-use, competitively priced tester is three tools in one—a fault locator, a cable and wire manager and a tone generator with SmartTone technology. From just ONE END of any two or more conductor cable you can measure up to 2,500 feet (762 meters). Easily find the distance to opens or shorts on electrical wire, telephone wire, security wire and coax. Results appear as a distance reading rather than a waveform, so it's perfect for technicians unfamiliar with Time Domain Reflectometery (TDR). Find and fix cable problems without pulling new wire or blindly cutting into walls. Intermittent faults are easier to find because the unit constantly measures while "On." It's perfect for inventory management of cable stock in trucks and warehouses and it can help you generate more accurate bids for jobs by quickly assessing needs and managing the cable stock with greater accuracy. Patented SmartTone technology gives you five distinct tones to use for exact wire and pair identification, even in proximity to current-bearing cable. When touching the wires together and momentarily shorting the far end of a cable pair, the SmartTone technology will change the cadence of the tone generated.  This tone change you hear through a probe positively verifies the correct wire pair. Voltage detection in the unit will immediately sound an alarm if you accidentally clip onto an energized pair, up to 250VAC.
Tone & Probe Kit
Kit includes the 77HP high power tone generator and the 200EP inductive amplifier in a rugged, woven polyester carrying case. Used to identify single conductors or cables with a bundle.
