The Fluke Networks MS2-100 Microscanner2 cable verifier verifies voice/data/video (VDV) cables and multimedia sources on common media types, including RJ11, RJ45, and coax. The meter displays a graphical wiremap, cable length, cable ID, and distance-to-fault. A tone generator produces digital and analog signals to locate cable or wire pairs. Digital mode locates high-grade cabling, including Category 5e, Category 6, and Category 6a in bundles or at switches, patch panels, and wall outlets. Analog mode verifies Category 3 and below voice-grade cabling, coax, security, alarm, and speaker wiring. VDV service detection verifies media services, including powered 10/100/1000 Ethernet switches, plain old telephone services (POTS) voltage and polarity, and Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) voltage and pairs. A backlit LCD is oversized for clear viewing in a variety of lighting levels, and a rubber holster protects the meter in rugged environments. Copper and fiber testers are used by network technicians to troubleshoot, maintain, and optimize performance of copper and fiber optic cabling, hardware connections, and network settings in enterprise networks.

A copper cable tester is a device for troubleshooting, inspecting, and certifying copper network cabling. Devices range from one-button tools for checking connectivity to complex tools for certifying network installations. Three types of testing include verification, to test whether a connection or cable is functioning correctly; qualification, to test a network's ability to support specific speeds and functionality; and certification, to verify whether a network installation meets industry standards. Cabling contractors, installers, and network technicians use copper cable testers to set up and maintain networks within a building or on a campus in corporate, academic, manufacturing, and other enterprise network environments.
Fluke Networks, a division of Fluke Corporation, manufactures tools and software for network deployment, performance management, and troubleshooting. The company, founded in 1992, is headquartered in Everett, WA.
