Friday March 06, 2015
Platinum Tools will debut the Net Prowler Pro Test Kit during 2015 ISC West, held in Las Vegas, Nev. from April 15-17 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center, booth #5036.

“The Net Prowler combines network testing (physical layer and link), IP device address mapping, cable troubleshooting and PoE voltage testing in a handheld tester with a full-color display…all with the capability of saving and printing test results from a personal computer,” explained George Jang, Platinum Tools product manager. “The Net Prowler provides full cable testing on any category network, coax, or telephone cable. It will display wire map, numbered ID remotes, and any faults, including shorts, opens, miswires, split pairs, and reverses.”

The full-featured Net Prowler measures cable length (using TDR technology) and generates tone levels for signal tracing and cable identification on all pairs, a selected pair, or a selected pin. The unit also enables quick identification of a network drops link capability and current link status. Net Prowler also tests the presence of PoE on the network drop and what class of PoE per IEEE 802.3 af/at with load test for voltage drop. These network tests can also be saved for record keeping and printing using the companion software application.

Packed together with different adapters in a hard-shell carrying case, the Net Prowler Pro Test Kit offers the professional installer a complete and versatile solution at a significantly reduced price than if each component was purchased separately.
