Cable Tester with Separate Sender and Receiver
The Alctron AC-CT-8 Cable Tester comes with all audio and electronics industry standard inputs, including XLR, Speaker (Speakon), MIDI, 1/4" plus digital RJ11 and RJ45 type connectors. The unit has separate 'Sender' and 'Receiver' units, which are able to be locked together for ease of transport, or split apart for testing cables at either end of a signal chain.
Simple To Use - Split Design
Simply plug in either end of an audio cable into the "A" and "B" side of the device, then select your mode to check signal continuity across all active pins / conductors. The brightly coloured LED's will light up indicating signal continuity and which pins are connected together. The inbuilt speaker of the AC-CT-8 also beeps when a successful connection is made between the Sender and Receiver units. If not all connections are made, no beep will sound, and the faulty connection's LED will not be lit.
The split unit design means you can test both cables you have on hand, as well as longer cables which are already set up. This time saving feature removes the hassle of packing down your cables just for testing. The Sender unit (B) includes a switch to select the speed in which the connections are tested, as well as the power switch.
The AC-CT-8 features a 3-Way toggle switch on the Receiver unit (A) to switch between "Cable Test", "Off" and "Tone Test". The Receiver is capable of producing a tone for line checks if connected to a PA / speaker, and also features a dB switch, to change between -50dB, -10dB and +0dB.
Positive and Negative Terminals
The AC-CT-8 comes with a pair of test probes to check for signal continuity between any type of conductors. A beep from the receiver confirms signal continuity.
Compact and Portable
This two-part cable tester is reliable and durable, whether it be on the road or in the studio. Both the A and B units are powered separately, and each side requires 9V battery power.
