This article features the LinkMaster POR XL voice-cable tester device from Ideal Industries. This device can map, test and trouble-shoot twisted cable and coax runs and has the ability to blink hubs to assure connected configurations on active networks. Voice testing resources include the detection of RJ-11, and the ability to automatically sense and adjust the pairing and pin numbers to the three-pair Universal Service Ordering Code standard in cable test, length and tone generator modes. It displays length measurement during initial results. Using the cable capacitance method, Unshielded Twisted Pair, Stream Control Transmission Protocol and coax length can be measured in feet or meters. If a remote is present in the length mode, the ID number will be displayed. The unit comes with eight twisted -pair remotes with built-in jacks for RJ-45 and RJ-11, allowing the user to quickly identify split pairs, shorts, open circuits, miswires and reversals, and to test for shield continuity. The tester will display a wire map for 10base-T and Token Ring with a remote connected. Eight Community Antenna Television color-coded F terminators are also included to test coax cable.
