Cable Testers - Any recommendations?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

In the process of taking stock of cables and sorting good from bad/need repair.  Are there any particular cable testing boxes that are better than others?

Here's a few that are available in my area :

Is a multimeter useful for cable testing? 

 

Thanks kindly :-)

 

Cheers,

Dave

I own one of the Behringer CT-200s.  Pretty simple to use, but sometimes I think it would be easier to interpret the CT-100.

 

You can use a Multi-meter, but a tester would be much faster if you have a lot of cable to test.

Plus a cable tester will find shorts and the multimeter sometimes forgets to double check.

Best,
