Network Tone and Probe

Tone Generators and Probe Testers

Tone generators are network testing devices used to diagnose and troubleshoot conflicts with active and inactive LAN circuits. Network technicians can map IPs, locate faults, and determine how to configure devices utilizing tone generators. We supply cable testers, tone and probe units, and tone generators for working with Ethernet LAN networks.

The CATV Coax Cable Tone Generator can be used with a tone probe to trace lines and test coaxial cable. Variable pulse settings allow the 402T to be used by itself or have up to four units simultaneously running to identify coax cables. This unit will identify non-tagged and mis-tagged cable drops. The tone generator sends a tone to identify wires and utilizes four distinct tone signatures.

Primus Cable also supplies the CATV Tone Receiver Probe, Cable Tester which complements the tone generator above. The newly designed 402R receiver provides three methods of signal reception: electrostat pickup for non-terminated cables, electromagnetic pickup for terminated or shorted cables, and direct connection when identifying in the presence of passive devices.

Another popular cable testing tool Primus Cable supplies is the Loop Verifier Alarm Tone Generator from Greenlee tools. It creates a distinct audible tone when faults are discovered in normally open or closed loop pairs. Its latching feature identifies intermittent failures and remotely confirms operation of switches. With its magnetic back plate, this tone generator can be mounted directly onto the control panel cabinet or door. This loop verifier is designed specifically for security alarm cable.

Primus Cable is more than just a networking cable provider. We offer end to end solutions for the cable technician and installer. If you need to make repairs after diagnosing a network, we have just the Crimping Tools to get the job done right, and quickly. We have crimping tools for a wide variety of applications including: RJ11, RJ12, RJ45, BNC, RCA, F connectors, and fiber optic connectors. Our experienced technicians are eager to assist you with any questions you may have.

If you have any questions, feel free to give us a call. 951-824-1571
