Q: What are different types of cable testers?

A: Verification – A cable tester can verify whether or not the cables wired are properly connected and paired.  This type of tester will reveal any problems in the cables.

Indentification - These testers will idenitfy which cable you need to work with.

Qualification – These types of testers cover everything that the verification equipment test but they will also tell you how well the cable supports data transfers.

Certification – These cable testers are the most sophisticated of the three. They cover the functions of both verification and qualification but they also can create a schematic of the entire network.


In terminated working cables: connect one test lead to a terminated wire and the other test lead to earth or equipment ground.

In unterminated or non-working cables: connect one test lead to an unterminated wire and trhe other test lead to another unterminated wire.

Then depress the round on/off spring-loaded button of the amplifier probe. Once on touch the tip of the amplifier probe to the insulation of each suspect conductor. The reception of tone will be loudest on the subject wire.
