About the Net Prowler

The Net Prowler performs a wide range of tests for any category network (Cat3/4/5/5e/6/6A), coax, or phone cable, shielded and unshielded. In addition to testing and measuring the length of high-end cables, the tester can detect the presence of PoE, identify link status and capability, test Ethernet cable configuration, locate unlabeled cables and more.

Featured Applications

  • Displays network devices and associated IP Addresses
  • Tests TCP/UDP throughput
  • Pings both IPV4 and IPV6 addresses
  • Tests the presence of VLANs
  • Identifies CDP/LLDP/NDP and VLAN
  • Provides network configuration information
  • Pings specific URL to verify WAN connectivity
  • Blinks link light to identify location on a hub/switch/router port
  • Tests and reports advertised and current link speed

The included #1-8 Coax Remote Set allows you to ID up to eight coax cables at once, while the #1-12 Data Remote Set provides ID capability for 12 data (twisted pair) cables or data ports/jacks at once. All remotes are numbered for quick identification.

The Net Prowler displays all information in a full-color graphical display. It offers the option of labeling any cable, saving results, and printing them through a computer after exporting with the included USB cable.

Kit Accessories

#1-8 Smart Remotes: ID up to eight voice/data drops/locations all at once. Each Smart Remote works with Cat6A, 6, 5e, 5, 4 and 3 shielded and unshielded cables.

NO-Fault Cable: Uses no-fault RJ12 connectors on both ends to ensure no damage to the RJ45 jacks.

RJ45 to Alligator Clips Cable: Used when shooting tone via the data port.

RJ45 Port Saver: Extend the life of your tester by using the RJ45 Port Saver as your sacrificial cable. This eliminates the wear and tear from constantly plugging in and out of the tester port.
