There's a lot of good functionality built into this unit. It has pretty much the widest variety of connectors that I've seen on any cable tester. There are two of each connector: for each pair one is an "output" and one is an "input" connector. Output connectors transmit a funny digital test signal, and the input connectors detect this signal and display the results (of which pins on one end of the cable are attached to which pins on the other) on the LED matrix. You attach one end of a cable to any output connector and the other end to any input connector -- so you can have different connectors on each end of the cord.

o You can test a cable with different connectors on the ends.

o There is a row of "intermittent" LEDs next to the matrix. You connect a cable, press the reset button, the wiggle the cable. If any of the wires are intermittent the corresponding LED will light. You can repeat this at will to track down a problem spot.

o There is a built-in tone generator. It generates a reasonably clean squarewave at either 440 or 1,000 Hz. There's a slide switch that selects one of three volume levels, but the output levels are not quite correct: The peak-to-peak output levels are: "-50MIC"=> 280mV (I think about 28mV would be more realistic), "-10dBV => 3.0V (should be 0.9V), +4dBu => 3.2V (this is about right).

o There is a way to test for shorts in a cable.

o There is a way to test cables where the far end can't be plugged into the tester: you short pins on the other end then test for shorts.

o The two pins on the side labeled "SPEAKON" are banana jacks, but are not the standard 3/4" apart so can't be used for testing dual banana plugs.

o The LED matrix can only test three pins at a time.

Installing the battery
1. Locate the small screw for the battery cover plate on the back of the unit
2. Using a small Phillips head screwdriver, rotate the small screw counter
clockwise.
3. Remove the plate.
4. Insert the two AA batteries with the correct polarity.
5. Reattach battery cover plate, insert screw and turn clockwise to tighten.

Testing cables
1. Move the On switch to Cable Tester.
2. To test pins 1-3, you may adjust the Switch 1-3 selector to SW1. For cables
with more than three pins, you may adjust the selector to SW2 for pins 4-6
and SW3 for pins 7-8.
3. Insert one end of the cable into one of the various inputs.
4. Insert the other end of the cable into one of the various outputs.
5. If the Grounded Shield LED lights up, this indicates that the XLR out shield
has been connected to pin1/sleeve.
6. Once the cable has been connected to both an input and output, the LED
grid will light up to show which pins are connected.
7. Each LED shows which input pins are connected to each output pin. The
Input pins are represented vertically while the output pins are represented
horizontally.
Ex. The LED in the top right hand corner shows that Pin1/Sleeve
on the input is going to Pin1/Sleeve on the output side.
8. For cables with more than three pins, you may adjust the Switch 1-3 selec
tor to SW2 for pins 4-6 and SW3 for pins 7-8. 3
Intermittent Connections

To test for broken connections
1. While in test mode with a cable plugged into both an In and Out, press the
reset button to clear the Intermittent LED’s.
2. Next, move the suspected cable end around vigorously while plugged in.
3.

This is an extremely well built device, (metal not plastic,) and does what it is supposed to do. The only problems I had were: (1) The battery compartment is so tight that after inserting the batteries, I had to physically push the batteries against the positive contacts. The negative springs were not strong enough to do it. So if it doesn't work at first, check the battery contacts. (2) It has only A and B USB connections. If you need to test cables with Micro or Mini USB ends on them, then you will need to buy adapters. Not a big thing, and the specs spell this out, but a lot of USB cables today have those kind of ends on them.

Very useful product, but Pyle Pro used very cheap components.

This product has saved me hours of discovering bad cables the hard way. It tests any type connector IN to any type connector OUT. The matrix is very useful as it tells you which pin from the IN goes to where on the OUT.

HOWEVER: When testing cables like a 3.5mm TRS (headphone) to stereo RCA, the unit's response can be confusing. To correctly test this type of cable, plug the 3.5mm TRS into the IN and ONE of the RCA ends into the RCA OUT. Verify that there is a connection, then unplug the RCA and plug the other one into the RCA OUT and verify again.

The unit is also mis-labeled. On the side where banana jacks *should* go, it is labeled "SPEAKON." This is obviously wrong. Also, the banana plug section is completely useless since the two jacks are not spaced properly apart to fit a pair and the unit is too tall to just plug one conductor of the connector into the unit to test one side at a time.

The build of the product is super shoddy. I had my unit for about a month before something started rattling inside. I took it [partly] apart to get whatever it was out. I found it to be a small nut that held part of one of the banana jacks in place (which is now lost forever). Luckily, I already counted those as a loss (read above).

Also, the battery many times falls out of the plastic holder which (of course) keeps it from turning on. This only happens when the unit is jarred a little (equivalent of dropping it from a height of 2" onto something hard). The battery can be reseated usually by turning it upside down and hitting it on your hand.

Overall, I'd definitely buy this product again and even recommend it to friends. It has issues, but it's a cable tester and does exactly that and well. It's still saving me many very valuable hours while setting up for shows.
