This video provides a demonstration on how to use a tone generator and tone probe to locate cables and connectors.
- I installed this power outlet and this RJ45 connection…about a year ago.…The idea here is I'm gonna plug a projector in up here…and the projector's gonna be network aware.…It's gonna be really cool.…Now I'm getting ready to install the projector…but I got a problem.…And the problem is, is I forgot where this connection…goes into my patch panel over in my equipment room.…So in order to figure out which connection in my patch panel…corresponds to this wall outlet,…I've gotta use this little guy.…This is a Fox and a Hound.…
Fox and Hound are registered trademarks…of Triplett Corporation,…so the more generic term is a tone generator…and a tone probe.…The idea is simple.…This guy creates a tone and then this guy,…(electrical device ringing)…as you get close to whoever he's connected to…then generates that tone so you can find cables.…Now this has an RJ11 connection on it.…And it actually, for the record,…RJ11s snap into RJ45s just fine.…Isn't that cool?…They just snap into the center like that.…
And what I can do, is I can run back with this tone probe…
