Cable tester
Mad Scientist
Cable Scientist NL8/NL4: Built in a 16-gauge steel case and covered in a blue powder coat, this unit is built for the rigors of the road. To test a cable, insert each end into send and receive respectively, and then step through the number of conductors in the cable via the rotary switch. The LEDs above the switch indicate correct or incorrect wiring. If the cable is wired correctly each step of the switch will light the corresponding top and bottom red and green LEDs. If the cable is wired incorrectly, the cable tester will indicate which pins are swapped and if it is on the send or receive end. Red LEDs indicate receive and green LEDs indicate send. The unit comes standard with NL8, NL4, XLR ¼" TRS, RCA and BNC connectors. An EP connector version is also available.
