Fluke Networks CIQ-KIT CableIQ Network Cable Tester Kit with Tone Generator Fluke Networks CIQ-KIT CableIQ Network Cable Tester Kit with Tone Generator available on June 29 2016 from Amazon for 1,895.00
5.0 out of 5 stars
This blows away the Microtest unit I used to use. The CableIQ is all you need to troubleshoot, diagnose, and qualify ethernet cabling. That's "qualify", not "certify". This unit gives you a good real-world determination of what a cable run is good for - but doesn't quite fulfill full ISO and TSA certification requirements contractors require to legally certify a job. It's weakness is results entry and advanced network mapping - making this best suited for the network admin or network installer working on discrete runs or spot jobs (i.e. can't use this to certify and report a big thousand port installation - but for day to day network run/patch troubleshoots, diags, and installs it's the BEST).

The CableIQ unit is compact and quick and easy to use and very very powerful. If you select "Discover" it will immediately tell you length and topology of the wire you're plugged into. It will tell you if it's live Ethernet (and what speed), or if it's POE, or telephone. Telephone...Read more

Topic Title Summary Views
   The CableIQ is a great product that feels purposefully crippled by Fluke. It's careful not to overlap on features offered by products in the same category, so you can't get by with one device. The qualification tests do a number of measurements like insertion loss, return loss, crosstalk, impedance, and ELFEXT, which is great, yet you don't get any of those values, just a check mark. It has a voip test, but plug into a Poe port used for a voip phone and the unit complains of high voltage and warns of unit damage if you don't unplug. It's little brother the Microscanner correctly identifies Poe voltage and the pairs it's on.Pros: generates printable test results quick auto-test and wire-map shows switch link speeds blink switch port is indespensible well constructed runs on AA'sCons: Windows 8 requires workaround (see my comment in other review) Poe voltage warns of unit damage test reports show very little...Read more
