Test, Identify & Qualify Dark Coax Networks

The Platinum Tools Coax Clarifier (with 4 Coax RF Remotes) is a hand-held dark coax system tester that allows you to quickly discern the layout of a dark (unpowered) coax network, locate faults on individual cable runs, identify remotes through splitters, and determine cable run lengths. Separate wire mapping sets can map the entire coax system and measure the quality and network characterization for carrying high-grade video, surveillance data and HD programming.

  • Fast testing using multiple wiremapping remotes
  • Quickly discover coax system layout configuration
  • Measures cable length up to 1,500 feet
  • Wiremaps up to 12 coax locations
  • Measures overall network quality, measured in dB

With the Coax Clarifier, you can map runs through splitters to show an accurate picture of the coax system layout using up to four Coax RF Remotes (four included). Up to 12 ID Only Coax Remotes are also available for wiremapping on home runs.

The Coax Clarifier also measures overall network quality and clearly depicts network reading as both a bar graph and a digital return loss number, measured in dB. The tester determines cable run length and reports the location of an open or unterminated cable. It also traces coax runs with four unique tones to quickly distinguish between respective outlets.

Platinum Tools Makes Connections Easy!

Founded in 1997, Platinum Tools was created based upon two very simple objectives. First, develop and source the absolute best possible solutions for the preparation, installation and hand termination of wire and cable. Second, implement an operational infrastructure that can deliver these products in an efficient, timely and high quality manner. All of their products absolutely must satisfy three critical benchmark criteria – utility of function, quality of function and economic value.
