Platinum Tools, a provider of wire and cable prep, installation, and hand termination products, announced on Friday that it will be displaying its new Net Prowler Pro Test Kit at the 2015 CEDIA Expo in Dallas in October. The kit, which is now shipping for $999.95, will be at Platinum’s booth (#6606) in the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center during the show.

“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, in a statement. “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 Net Prowler measures cable length (using TDR technology) and produces tone levels for signal tracing and cable identification on all pairs, a selected pair, or a selected pin, Platinum explained in the statement. The product also allows the user to quickly identify if a network drops link capability and current link status.

In the box, customers will find a wide range of equipment including the main unit, #1-8 Network/Tel Test and ID smart remotes, multiple adapters, and more. Visit the booth at CEDIA for more information, and to test the product.
