ALLTEQ - CT2468 Cable Tester                Site Map       Home

The Cable Tester Model 2468 is a versatile unit that locates, traces and tests voice and data network problems that are wire related.  


The Model 2468 consists of a 2468T transmitter, 2468R receiver with a built in inductive probe, two modular RJ45 adapter cables, one RJ11 adapter cable. Both 2468T and 2468R both are housed in a rugged carrying case.

The Model 2468 provides three 8-position modular jacks for the most common CAT-5 cable configurations. These include USOC, 568A, 568B, 10 Base T (ethernet), 100 Base T (fast ethernet). In addition, it also provides a RG6 cable (CATV Coax) 258, and a RJ11 connector for regular POTS line 2 Wire connection.

Open or shorted pairs and general mis-wires are rapidly diagnosed with the 2468. The unit is versatile, compact and economical, because it is designed not only to tests the correct cable wiring, but also for tracing the correct cable. Unlike other test sets, the 2468 comes with a standard built-in inductive amplifier probe, eliminating the need for a separate probe.
