Fluke Linkrunner Overview

Today’s networks are faster and more complicated than ever.

The Linkrunner  will help you quickly identify problems and isolate them to hardware, cabling or network equipment.  This is essential to productivity because you no longer need to wait for a full size cabling tester to be delivered.

This meter allows you to ping a default router or user identified piece of equipment. There is a built in ping responder with return trip time. You may also see if the DNS server or end user hardware is on your local network or a remote network.

The Linkrunner’s CDP/EDP will determine port locations on Telecommunications Room equipment.  Identifying pins 1-8 can pinpoint cable fault & short locations. The built in tone generator can be used with an Intellitone probe for tracing cables.  The hub port will flash so you can visually determine where your cable is located.
