Essential Info

The Hobbes Innovation SMARTone & SMARTprobe kit is a revolutionary network installation and trouble shooting tool, it goes entirely above and beyond the traditional methods to trace and identify cables. In the past, when using tone and probe tool you had to listen quite closely to identify the tone signals; it was easy to confuse the signal with surrounding noise making it difficult to be certain of the results.

The SMARTone & SMARTprobe uses advanced digital signal technology to trace and identify cables in high speed and high precision; avoiding noise and false signals.

It is a true breakthrough beyond traditional testing methods. The SMARTone and SMARTprobe kit is compatible with traditional analog tone generators. Finally, it is not only a digital Tone and Probe but also a cable tester; it can test cable continuity, telephone service/polarity, and even wire mapping.

  • Traces cables at a distance
  • Identifies cables in bundles or at patch panels
  • Sends digital/analog tones in two distinct modes: one note tone and two note tones
  • Receiving tone sensitivity level: 9 levels
  • LED Bar and speaker are used as indicators
  • Can use probe to trace traditional 1KHz analog tone
  • Cable map: pin to pin test for cable opened/shorted/reversed/ crossed/miss-wired
  • Telephone service and polarity test: +polarity; -polarity; ringing
  • Probe has an adjustable speaker volume level suitable for various work environments
  • Auto Power off and low battery indicator
  • Complied with IEEE802.3af standard
