Reduces troubleshooting time finding physical layer problems
The LanMaster 30 Outlet Identifier provides LAN/Telecom Installers and Maintainers a tool to quickly test an unknown wall outlet and identify the type of circuit. Connecting equipment to an unknown outlet can damage NICs, modems, telephones or test equipment that do not have a compatible electrical interface. Some PBX systems can provide voltage and current levels that far exceed the limits of telecom or network devices resulting in equipment failure when connected. Knowing the type of signals present at an outlet not only protects against equipment damage, but also reduces troubleshooting time finding physical layer problems. The LanMaster 30 scans all combinations of the eight wires connected to an RJ-45 outlet to identify the type of equipment connected to the far-end or warn of the detection of potentially harmful unknown signals. Identifying the outlet type with the unit eliminates guessing which is the correct outlet and wasting time tracing cables. In less than six seconds, the LanMaster 30 will identify a 10baseT Link, 100baseT Link, Token Ring Link, Analog Telephone Line, PBX Line, ISDN Line, warn of unidentified signals, or indicate no signals are present. The Model 30 even indicates when a 10/100 Ethernet Link is configured for Auto-negotiation. Managing network and telecom systems is easier and safer with a LanMaster 30.
