LCT8 manual (2.6mb)

The LCT8 is a great tester for people doing communication installations and maintenance, as it provides quick verification of several common types of communication problems in structured LAN wiring, coaxial cabling and telephone wiring.

Main Functions

  • Find the open circuits, short circuits, jumpers, crossed or split pairs in coax and UTP cables.
  • Identifies and locates the distance to an open or a short in seconds
    • Time-domain reflectometer (TDR)
  • Identify cables using upto 8 (optional) remote terminators
    • Remote adaptors require no extra power
    • 1x remote terminator supplied with LCT8
  • Low battery indication.

 

Features

  • Measures cable length in a box, on a spool, or in a wall. Know how much cable you have left on a spool before beginning your pulls.
  • Check for wiring errors in: LAN UTP cables, coaxial cables and telephone lines,

    such as:

    • open circuit,
    • short circuit,
    • jumper wire,
    • reverse connection,
    • cross talk interface or,
    • split pairs.
  • Locate the wiring or connection error.
  • Dynamically calibrate cable length and make length measurement as accurate as 97%.
  • Simple and easy to use 144 x 64 Dots FSTN LCD screen display test results.
  • Portable unit with long battery life.
  • Automatic time delay shut off.
  • Measure length and pair without the need for remote terminator.
  • 1x Remote terminator with audible alert supplied.
  • Self-checking function and automatic compensation for any change in battery capacity or ambient temperature.
  • Dimensions: 195 x 93 x 38mm (LCD display: 69 x 38mm)
  • Locate/Identify cables with up to 8 remote passive test jacks
    • Note: Only 1x passive terminator supplied (ID01)
    • 7x extra optional passive terminators available: LCT8RM
