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?

USB LAN Network/Phone Cable Tester RJ11 RJ12 RJ45 Cat5

Automatically scan mode, rapidly testing, the streamline shape is in accordance with the design of somatology

Any RJ45 / Cat5 tester will be fine.

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?
