LanCaster ProST Features

"The only wire map tester in its class that stores and provides printed test reports"

The Lancaster ProST is a low cost wire map tester which tests and certifies structured cabling continuity to TIA568A/B, USOC and ISDN standards.

The Lancaster ProST displays on-screen wiring configurations showing the length of all 4 pairs and length of pair to fault up to 150m (500ft).

The Lancaster ProST will store up to 1000 test results which can then be downloaded to PC using the Lancaster ProST software (provided). Test results can then be customised with your corporate identity and certificates produced displaying customer's location/job length, cable VP and testing standard.

Maintaining all the proven features of the standard Lancaster, the ProST identifies all common faults on wiring Schemes, installed TIA568A/B, USOC and ISDN Standards, including open circuit wires, shorted pairs, shorts between pairs, crossed pairs, split pairs, pair reversals and shield/screen continuity. In addition, the Lancaster Pro ST has a large backlit screen.

As with the standard Lancaster, the ProST can check installed wiring networks, alerting the operator if any telephone services are active on the cable under test and can test for and indicate any other active services (10MB/s, 100MB/s, Token Ring etc) to prevent accidental testing of a live network. In addition, a built-in tone generator (oscillator) transmits a warbling tone into the cable enabling detection and tracing using a standard probe receiver.

See our note on Crazy Structured Cable Testers for further details relating to the LanCaster and LanCaster ProST wire map testers.
