HASH(0xa1d9c918) out of 5 stars Essential tool for a full time network Tech. (COPPER) Oct. 2 2013
By Richard Snow - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This tool kit is great for any network technician that works primarily on copper lines. (This unit does not work on fiber) Also not that this tool is a Cable Verifier - it does not Certify Cable - for that you will need the CableIQ devices.

I'll break it down so you can decide if you need the whole kit or just the Microscanner 2

Microscanner 2:
The main unit in this kit it the Microscanner 2. It is built into a fairly rugged housing - enough to protect it from occasional drops from reasonable heights - I wouldn't drop it off of a 2-story house or anything, but it should survive being dropped from a 6-foot ladder or the top of a large server rack.

The remote terminator is built into the blue snap-on cap that covers up the RJ-11/45 and coaxial jacks on the top of the unit.

It is simple enough to use - simply plug one end of your cable into the MS2 and the other end into the remote terminator and watch the magic happen. The MS2 displays cable length, PoE, and a wire map to diagnose/verify the type of cable you're connected to.

What you can verify/Diagnose:
Straight-Through Cables
Crossover Cables
Split Pairs
Crossed Pairs
Faults
Shorts
PoE
Switchport Speed
Cable Length
Distance to fault.

The MS2 is also a toner - so you can use it in conjunction with any analog or digital toner probe to locate cables.

This tool alone should be in every installer's tool bag. - The price is a bit high, but it will pay for itself in time saved if you're installing cable on a regular basis. This tool is not recommended for a home user or a one-off installation. This is a tool for Professional Network installers and technicians.

Remote Identifiers #2-#7

When you're doing a big job, the remote identifiers make verification and location identification simple. Plug your remote IDs into the jacks you've just terminated - (I like doing this at the wall jacks immediately after I've terminated) - then go to the wiring closet/IDF/MDF and plug the Microscanner2 into the punch panel jacks you've terminated to verify the cable and it's location in the building. This makes labeling jacks and punch panels quick and painless - much better than walking back and forth to each jack from the wiring closet with an individual remote terminator.

Wondering why the Remote IDs are #2-#7 - the remote terminator cap on the MS2 is #1.

These work for both coaxial cable and RJ-45/11 jacks.

Intellitone 200 Probe

Digital and Analog toning
- Isolate terminated cables OR individual wire pairs when using digital toning.
Wiremapping

If you've already got a toner probe,use it - if you don't - get the kit - the probe is great.

Lots of fluff -

Cables, a nice little case to hold your remote terminators, and a fully padded case for the whole kit - a nice touch.

Overall - if you need a tool for wire mapping and cable verification, the Microscanner 2 is a great tool. It's pricey at $425, but worth it on your first big cabling job, just on time saved. (Bid on the job - don't charge an hourly rate)

If you also need the remote IDs and a Toner Probe, get the kit - it'll save you a few hundred dollars compared to buying the tools individually - the Remote IDs alone are $235.

HASH(0xa1d9cb40) out of 5 stars It's a Fluke - worth the money March 31 2012
By Dave1E - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I was hesitant to order this item because other reviews stated it will not indicate Ethernet speed. Perhaps they had an earlier version that did not indicate Ethernet speed, or else they just didn't read the manual. Whatever, this network verifier does in fact indicate speed, ID, pairs, etc. flawlessly. I'm really not an icon lover so if I had anything negative to write it would be to use text instead of the stupid icons, or add text to the icons for those that can read. As always, I do not regret spending my dollars on anything built by Fluke.

HASH(0xa1d9cda4) out of 5 stars Excellent network cabling diagnostic tool Oct. 13 2011
By TekyJeff - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The Fluke MicroScanner2 cable verifier is a terrific network cabling diagostic tool. I went from a no-name brand "which pins are connected" tool to this beauty. It not only tells you which pins are connected, and how long the cable is ... if there's an issue with the cable, it tells you the issue (open or short) and how far down the cable the issue occurs. It is also a tone generator. It works with Cat3, Cat5, Cat6, and coax and tests up to 1000 MHz. I won't go to a cabling job without this handy gadget. I got it from Amazon.com at a great price ... I received it quickly and without issue.

HASH(0xa1da0324) out of 5 stars good basic network testing tool Feb. 18 2013
By J. Basham - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I have owned other testing tools that do basic pair testing and continuity testing. This tool is inexpensive and gives you most of the testing capability you would want for ethernet and coax cabling.

it will give you a pair map and the length. the length is determined without the end terminator being needed, cool. you can use the tool to detect POE or switch connections on the other end of the cable. And you can trace cables and ports and things with this.

the tester will not give you a qualification or a speed capability tho, i found the fluke site and forums to have varying information on this. so to be clear, it does not do it.
