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

Like the famous POCKET TONER brought to you by Gale Corp, PT- SIX natively supports coaxial cable with F-type connectors and this kit provides adapters to work with telephone (RJ-11) and bare wire such as twisted pair. Operation of the tool is simple. Attach the six terminators to the remote locations of a wiring network. Take the tool to the hub or 66-Block (main box where all the wires converge). Plug the head (sending unit) into the end of one of the cables to test. When the power switch is turned on, the sending unit applies a mild voltage to the line being tested. If there is a splitter or a short-circuit in the line, the red LED on the head of the unit will illuminate. If the line is free of short-circuits and it has one of the six terminators attached to the other end, the matching numbered green LED on the tool will light - indicating clean continuity to the terminator of the same number. With the addition of a optional adapters, you can test LAN, audio/video, security, or virtually any other type of wire or cable. If you only work with CATV cable you may want to check out our PT-SIX CATV Kit. Kit Includes: PT-SIX test tool (AAA battery included) 6 numbered terminators Carrying case with belt clip F-male & F-female adapters RJ-11 adapter RJ-45 adapters 66-block adapter BNC adapters RCA adapters Alligator clip adapter with RJ-45 plug
Gale's PT-SIX Pocket Toner™ Cable & Telephone Kit features the ultimate tone and tag tool. It identifies and tests continuity, shorts, splitters, 50-75-Ω terminations and polarity on six coaxial cables in one easy step. Six numbered terminators are tuned to light up matching green LEDs on the PT-SIX head and identify test cable. This tool supports coaxial cable with F-type connectors. Operation is easy. Place numbered terminators at up to six locations. Turn on power switch and test each unidentified cable with PT-6 at the hub location. Check the LEDs on the sending unit. A red light at the top of the head indicates a short or splitter in the test line. If a green numbered light illuminates, continuity is clean to the terminator of the same number. This Solution Series model weighs less but provides higher efficiency. Durable aluminum construction makes this test tool lightweight compared to the original Pocket Toners. A non-corrosive finish in an attractive high-visibility green shade makes this color-coded model is easy to find.
