    NC-500 - Overview

    The Tempo NC-500 NETcat® Pro2 is a digital cable and service verification tool for fast, accurate checking of cables, wiring, and network service. Operated using a back-lit touch screen display, the Pro not only tests wiring continuity and proper pair allocation, but measures the length of multi-pair cables, LAN, or coaxial cables by utilizing advanced high-speed Step TDR (time domain reflectometry). Additionally, the NETcat® Pro determines if network service is available up to Gigabit and displays whether Power over Ethernet is provisioned. When used with the NC-510 Accessory Kit containing seven (7) expansion remote test modules, the NETcat Pro can uniquely test coax or twisted pair jacks from a central location, eight (8) at a time. Using a fingertip or the built-in stylus, the screen can be used to control and display a range of tests from fault finding the wire-map, to TDR length measurement. The display can be set to English, Spanish, German, or French language.

    • Features:

      • CAT 5 and up cabling (both shielded and unshielded) plus coaxial cables can be tested.
      • Pair tracing tones can be generated and applied to various combinations of wires to aid detection.
      • Test and troubleshoot telephone, data, and coax wiring
      • Detect split pairs, short circuits, broken, and crossed wires
      • Step TDR technology shows length to open or short of all pairs
      • Large icons ensure easy use with your finger too
      • Backlit touch-screen used to control all functions
      • Included stylus slots into main unit
      • Tone generator with four selectable precision frequency tones, compatible with Tempo advanced digital signal processing probes
      • Identifies active network devices on 10/100/1000 Base-T Ethernet (802.3) networks both half and full duplex.

      • 0-2,000 foot (600 Meter) cable length via step TDR.
      • Sub-nanosecond resolution ensures this cable verifier is one of the most precise on the market, spotting errors that simple low speed wire-mappers miss.
      • Patch cable and remote jack wire-map and identification using the self-contained "Office-ID/Remote" unit that neatly stores in the bottom of the main unit.
      • Detects shorts, opens, reversed, crossed, and split pairs.
      • Office identification using remote ID units - up to 8 different IDs, one included, seven additional available in NC-510 accessory kit.
      • Troubleshoots and verifies a wide range of networks.
      • Generate four distinct, precision tones for tracing low-loss cables like Cat 5.
