I've run about a dozen Cat5 cable to connect to the NuVo Grand Concerto keypads and want to test the lines. Would any Rj45 tester as shown in the photo be ok?

Any RJ45 / Cat5 tester will be fine.

Hmmm... Looking at both of those models (which appear to be the same make), I don't like the fact that you must look at displays on both ends to determine that a fault exists, and what to do about it. The instructions indicate that a missing / crossed wire will only show up on the display at one end.

I'd at least step up to this one:

http://www.monoprice.com/Product?c_id=105&cp_id=10524&cs_id=1052401&p_id=8130&seq=1&format=2

Which will show all the fault information from the primary end without having to check both...

Thanks for the reply and I should have waited a bit since I like the one jautor posted better. Unfortunately I already ordered the one on Amazon.

Somatology?

WTF does that have to do with CAT cabling?
