This cable tester CCT-01 can be connected to a computer to generate the test report. It can show you the wrong connections of your cable in a table format.
- ‘O‘ -> Correct connection
- ‘X‘ -> Incorrect connection
- ‘M‘ -> Missing connection
In this example, there is a ‘O‘ located at row A1 and column C6. This indicate that there is a connection between the port A1 and C6 detected and this connection is the same as the cable connection that was learned from the master cable.
An ‘X‘ is located at row B6 and column D1. This indicate that there is a connection between the port B6 and D1 detected. However, from the master cable learned, there should not be any connection between the port B6 and D1. Therefore an ‘X‘ symbol is marked in the matrix table.
If an ‘M‘ is found inside this table, it indicate that a connection should be at the matrix port position, however no cable connection is detected.
Another feature this tester can do is to scan and maps out the connection of an unknown/undocumented cable. Just setup the connection and a report will be generated showing you how this cable harness is connected internally. Any complex wiring connection mapping can be generated instantly. This reduces your time to reverse engineer the cable manually, and less chance of human error.
