NEWBURY PARK, Calif., Aug. 31, 2017 - Platinum Tools(R) (www.platinumtools.com), the leader in solutions for the preparation, installation, hand termination and testing of wire and cable, is proud to announce the launch of the next generation VDV MapMaster™ 3.0 cable tester during CEDIA Expo 2017, held in San Diego from Sept. 7-9 at the San Diego Convention Center, booth # 4452. The T130 VDV MapMaster™ 3.0 is now shipping.


"Based on the tremendous success of the award-winning VDV MapMaster 2.0, our 3.0 brings continuity testing, mapping, tone generator, and length measurement to the next level in one easy-to-use unit," explained Jason Chesla, Platinum Tools, Inc. Marketing Manager. "Whether your jobs are commercial or residential, the versatility and added features of the VDV MapMaster 3.0 makes it a best value cable verifier for the professional installer."

Made in the USA, the VDV MapMaster 3.0 tests Cat7, Cat6A, Cat6, Cat5e, Cat5, Cat4, and Cat3 shielded and unshielded cables, voice and coax. The MapMaster 3.0 is capable of identifying and mapping 20 locations at one time. The large backlit display, glow-in-the-dark keypad, a built-in flashlight and audible beep verification also helps the professional to work in the dark.

"The VDV MapMaster 3.0 raises the bar for value-featured testers in this price range," Chesla continued. "Installers are asking for more than just a cable test and measurement tool. We've also added port blinking to allow port identification on switches that cables are connected to. Single-ended testing for shorts drastically reduces trouble-shooting with the MapMaster 3.0. It is the ideal instrument for installation, troubleshooting, and maintenance on telco, network, or coax cable in any situation."
