Knowing whether or not your coax outlet is live and receiving a valid signal is crucial to having successful connectivity and internet access. There are various ways to discover whether or not your coax outlet is live, but the easiest way to find out is by testing it. While testing your outlet can be an arduous task, the one-of-a-kind, pocket-sized DSS-01 Coax Cable Tester can make testing your coax outlet – and, ultimately, discovering if your coax outlet is live – simple and stress-free.
Testing coax outlets and cabling
As opposed to taking your internet modem from outlet to outlet (wires, box and all), the DSS-01 Coax Cable Tester plugs into your coaxial outlet and tests its connectivity – saving you time, energy and a potential headache. With its compact design, the Coax Cable tester fits into tight, hard-to-reach areas, making it ideal for testing outlets that aren’t easily accessible. Is your outlet behind your media cabinet and difficult to reach? The Coax Cable Tester can be plugged into the outlet and discover if it is live.
Getting an accurate test
Unlike competitor products that detect voltage, the DSS-01 Coax Cable Tester only tests for specific ranges of Radio Frequency (RF) signals that your service provider uses, meaning that you won’t receive false-positive readings that a valid signal is present. The DSS-01 Coax Cable tester also works regardless of whether there are known splitters on your line, saving time in your overall process. By detecting specific valid RF signals at the coax outlet, installation hassles can be significantly reduced and greatly improves your overall experience.
One simple and fast test
This handy, low-cost tool is an easy-to-use solution when it comes to testing your Coax Cable System, helping you discover if your coax outlet is receiving a signal and is ready to use. Simply plug the DSS-01 Coax Cable Tester into the coaxial outlet you need to test and press the button. You will start receiving results instantly, and in less than 10 seconds, you will know if your coax outlet is live. When the LED-light indicator is red, it means the outlet is not live and is not receiving a signal. When its green, it means the coax outlet is live and is receiving a valid signal.
