Inexpensive CAT5 Tester

Received this news from Dave McLaughlin on a CAT5 tester available for under £100…
“Just plug one end of your cable into the Atlas IT and the other into the Atlas Terminator and press “test”. In seconds the unit will identify the cable type (straight through, crossover or token ring) and verify every connection. If there are any faults then they are clearly explained on screen. Socket testing is possible too thanks to the special patch cables included in the outfit. Swapped lines, missing lines, shorted lines are all uniquely identified together with the full connection pattern! What’s more, if you want to know how to make up a special network cable, the Atlas can instruct you, even down to cable colours! The Atlas IT is supplied in a robust carry case complete with a spare terminator and spare battery.”
