Locate hidden cables froma distance
One of the toughest, most time-consumingparts of locating a cablehas been in tracing itspath through walls,ceilings or wiringclosets. TheIntelliTone smartdigital signal fea-tures a LOCATE tonethat provides maxi-mum radiation, allowingyou to quickly locate hiddenand hard-to-find cabling from a distance.
Isolate the right cable – fast
Cabling installations have become increas-ingly complex, which has madecabling increasingly diffi-cult to locate with ana-log technology. Cablesfrom individual wall jacks or devices areoften broughttogether and run inbundles to a central area or panel. Whencables are run together foreven short lengths, a signal fromone can bleed over to another. One cablemight carry the original signal; other cablesmight carry the signal as a result of bleed.Isolating cables with analog tools requiresguesswork, training, time for repeated test-ing – and even the best efforts often resultin mistakes.The IntelliTone Toner uses the uniqueproperties of twisted pair cabling to createa signal that minimizes the effect of bleed.The smart digital signal processing in theIntelliTone Probe clearly identifies thissignal with audio and LED visual indicators,allowing you to rapidly isolate the correctcable from a bundle or on a patch panel.IntelliTone eliminates hours of cableconfusion – so you can get it right thefirst time.
Overcome noise – and savehours of time
Fluorescent lights, machinery, computermonitors and electrical wiring all producenoise that slows down cable location ormakes it simply impossible with standardanalog audio toners and probes. Together,the IntelliTone Toner’s synchronized digital signal and the IntelliTone Probe’s micro-processor controlled signal identificationtechnology reject noise and false signals toclearly identify cable location. Thisadvanced capability alone can save youhours every week on cable location projects.
Tone on live networksquickly and safely
Modern network devices use aggressivetermination schemes for cables connected totheir ports. While this termination reducesnoise and crosstalk in the cable, it can alsoabsorb an analog toner signal, making theconnected cable impossible to detect. Theresult is that locating an unlabeled networkcan take hours with analog technology.Unlike analog signals, the IntelliTone digital signal stays strong despite common modetermination. And the IntelliTone Toner auto-mates toning individual cable conductors,making it quick, efficient and safe to locatecables on active networks.
Validate conductor continuitywith cablemap
Eliminate callbacks during cabling moves,adds and changes withthe powerful diagnos-tic capabilities of IntelliTone™. TheIntelliTone 200Probe features aCABLEMAP capa-bility that identi-fies common cablemiswires in twistedpair cabling. IntelliTonetechnology automates the testing of eachconductor for end-to-end continuity; LEDlights and tones clearly indicate miswires.
Identify and troubleshootcable services
– Once you’ve located a cable,the next step is to validate cable conductorcontinuity. IntelliTone 100 and 200 SeriesToners make it easy – eliminating the needfor a separate diagnostic tool.
– Is the RJ45 jack a datacom jack, aphone jack – or a dead jack? IntelliTone 200Toners take the guesswork out of huntingfor an active jack, or a jack with the rightservice. LEDs clearly identify common servic-es found on today’s networks, includingtelecom and datacom services and10/100/1Gb Ethernet links.
