Cable tracer/locator

  1. cable is most often two or more wires running side by side and bonded, twisted, or braided together to form a single assembly, but can also refer to a heavy strong rope. In mechanics, cables, otherwise known as wire ropes, are used for lifting, hauling, and towing or conveying force through tension. Inelectrical engineering cables are used to carry electric currents. An optical cable contains one or more optical fibers in a protective jacket that supports the fibers.

Electric cables discussed here are mainly meant for installation in buildings and industrial sites. For power transmission at distances greater than a few kilometres see high-voltage cablepower cables, and HVDC.

NETcat Pro NC-500 Structured Wiring Troubleshooter is a digital tester for fast, accurate checking of cables, wiring and network service. Using a back-lit touch screen display, the Netcat Pro not only tests wiring continuity and proper pair allocation, but measures the length of cables and determines if network service is available.
