WNAMM09: Comprehensive Cable Tester
CT3 – complete and split mode

SM Pro Audio tell us that their new CT3 professional cable tester is set for release . When Danny Olesh , product manager, had this to say, "Similar designs for Cat 5 network cable testers have been available for years. We though it about time this technology was implemented in the audio world".
Here's details from the SM Pro Audio press release...
Roadies, engineers, installer, and musicians take note. The most comprehensive cable tester on the planet has just arrived in the form of the CT3 multi-format automatic cable tester.
Simple to operate, the CT3 tests a plethora of cable and connector types from BNC through to RJ45. Simply connect each end of a cable to the appropriate connector and the CT3 will automatically report the status of the cables integrity.
Many cable testers usually require access to both ends of a cable to test. This is fine for most audio cables, but what if cables are on long looms, or even installed through walls? The CT3 comes to the rescue with a unique two-part design enabling testing over long distances. Split the Chassis in two and all your problems are solved.
