CAMARILLO, Calif., Aug. 1, 2012 - Platinum Tools(R) (www.platinumtools.com), the leader in solutions for the preparation, installation and hand termination of wire and cable, is proud to announce that the new Coax Clarifier™ (p/n TCC200 / 220) layout/fault finder is now shipping.


"The Coax Clarifier system has been designed to qualify and quantify 'Dark' coax systems," explained Lee Sachs, Platinum Tools, Inc. president and general manager. "The field technician often comes across 'Dark' unpowered coax systems that give no clue as to their design, condition, or configuration. Made in the U.S.A, the Coax Clarifier helps solve this problem."

The Coax Clarifier determines individual run quality as well as to determine the ability of the overall system's capability to deliver good quality video at both standard and high definition levels. With an easy-to-read large backlit LCD, the Coax Clarifier shows loss levels on each coax cable run and displays a bar graph of quality for each. Detecting and testing splitters for quality, shorts/opens, etc. is also done on each test. Finally, the Coax Clarifier uses inexpensive wiremap remotes that allow the technician to singlehandedly "map" an entire system easily and quickly. Cable length measurements, signal quality measurements, and wiremapping all in one compact, rugged tester.

In addition, separate wire mapping sets allows a technician to map out the entire coax system and measure the quality and characterization of the overall network for carrying services, such as high grade video, surveillance data, and HD programming. It also has the ability identify the testing remotes through splitters, showing the end location of multiple runs off of installed splitters.

• Measures cable length up to 1,500 ft. (457 meters)
• Four unique tones to distinguish between respective outlets
