For more than a decade, cabling installation and maintenance technicians have relied on MicroScanner to verify terminations and troubleshoot continuity faults. A lot has changed in the cabling world since the original MicroScanner was introduced. Industry economics require that installations be done fast and accurately with no callbacks. And converging voice, data, and video technologies have given rise to more requirements for service testing and multimedia support.
MicroScanner2 recognizes these trends and presents a much-needed revolution to the way testing is done. It streamlines every aspect of the verification job. From its time-saving user interface and integrated multimedia support to its expanded service detection capabilities, MicroScanner2 gives technicians the power to perform their jobs faster and more accurately than ever.
Reduce test time and user error
Yesterday's cable verification testers force users to toggle between different modes (up to four) to view all test results. This not only slows the test process, but also causes user frustration and error. MicroScanner2 has defied this convention by displaying key test results - wiremap, pair lengths, distance to fault, cable ID, and far-end devices - all on one screen.
Eliminate awkward test adapters
Tired of losing or breaking all the adapters needed for testing the various voice, data, and video media types MicroScanner2 makes the adapters things of the past with built-in RJ11, RJ45, and coax support. Both the main unit and the far-end identifiers can be used to test telephone jacks, Ethernet jacks, and CATV outlets right out of the box.
Rule out service problems fast
Today's communications technicians have more problems to deal with than just the cabling. They have to rule out a whole host of cable and service issues before determining the cause of a connectivity problem.
Locate elusive cables in seconds
MicroScanner2 features built-in IntelliTone digital and analog toning to precisely locate virtually any cable or wire pair, regardless of work environment. Use digital mode to locate high-grade data cabling in bundles, or at switches, patch panels, or wall outlets. Or, use analog mode on voice-grade cabling, as well as coax, security/alarm, and speaker wiring.
Repair or replace tools less often
With all the abuse you put your tools through, you can't afford for them to be delicate. MicroScanner2 features a rubber wrap-around holster that makes it the right tool for even the toughest jobs. Toss it into your toolbox. Drop it from a ladder. It can handle it. Plus, it now comes standard with a vinyl carry pouch for enhanced protection and convenience.
