• Rugged, compact, metal construction for ultimate roadworthiness, long life, and reliability
Cable testing:
At first, turn the rotary switch fully clockwise to test the battery strength. The battery LED will light bright green if the internal
battery is fully charged.
Then plug one end of the cable into the appropriate jack on the left side panel of the cable tester. Plug the other end of the
cable into the appropriate jack on the right side panel. Set the rotary switch to “1” to test the connection of contact 1 on the
plug inserted into the left side panel.
If there is a connection, the Green LED will light below “1” and a Yellow LED will light above each contact on the right side
plug connected to “1” on the left side plug. Use the charts below to verify proper cable connections.
If no LED lights then there is no connection and the left side contact “1” is “floating” due to design or an “open” in the cable.
Set the rotary switch to “2” to test contact 2, and so on, until all contacts have been checked.
If the Ground LED lights then there is a connection between the corresponding contacts and the chassis.
To test the cable with a banana plug, just plug each end of the cable into the banana jacks. The LED will light and the unit
will beep a tone if there is a connection between the plugs. These banana jacks can also be used for continuity tests using
two probe leads.
