Tone Generator Hardware Compatibility
« on: June 18, 2018, 05:06:06 PM »
Hi,
Will the Klein Tools NCVT-2 non-contact voltage tester work with the tone generator in the app.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/NCVT-2-Voltage-Tester-Flashlight-yellow/dp/B004FXJOQO/ref=sr_1_1?s=diy&ie=UTF8&qid=1529334178&sr=1-1&keywords=klein+tools+ncvt-2

Is there anywhere that you supply a list of compatible voltage testers?

Thanks.
Niall

No, no voltage tester will work.

Voltage testers and tone testers are separate tools. Some models have both integrated, but the one you have in your link is solely a voltage tester.

You have to search for tone testers. According to the PE staff any analog model will work (https://forum.pockethernet.com/index.php?topic=139.msg650#msg650)

Here’s an example of a tone tester (no experience with it though):

edit, cheaper and dedicated to tone only: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Finder-Generator-Tracer-Tracker-Network/dp/B073XLV9BM/ref=lp_4915103031_1_22?s=diy&ie=UTF8&qid=1529413843&sr=1-22

Just to confirm. Yes Bogeyman is right. Any analogue tone tester will work with Pockethernet. No, the voltage tester you link to isn't compatible with Pockethernet. Both testers bogeyman suggested should work perfectly fine with Pockethernet.

Thanks jboxtel and Bogeyman.
I returned that and bought a Tacklife Cable Tester on Amazon (see link below).
It worked very well!

Kind Regards,
Niall
