Distributor OneAV has partnered with Patch App & Go, the smart network tester, adding its Continuity Tester and Cable Tracer to its product portfolio. The one-man device is powered by a mobile app. Available for Android and iOS, it can then test or trace 4-pair Lan cables.

Each tester is supplied with 6 Smart Remote Plugs, which are individually programmed from 1 to 6. Patch App & Go will display the wiremap results and the ID of the plug currently being tested. Other functions include mapping features, which allows you to trace unidentified network cables and the ability to save and export PDF test results.

The range includes the main tester, additional Smart Remote Plugs, and the special Patch App & Go AV-Test kit, which is exclusive to OneAV.

The cable tracer works by inserting the Smart Remote Plugs into the ports of a Patch Panel. Patch App & Go will then send a trace through the cable to the uniquely numbered Smart Remote Plug, notifying the user of plugs ID, and allowing the user to correctly label the link. Integrators can test up to 24 ports in quick succession before having to relocate the Smart Remote Plugs.

“We’re always thrilled to add more brands to our rapidly growing clientele, especially when the brand saves time and money,” says Andy Oattes, Sales Director of OneAV. “The idea was to bring a testing solution to our installer-base that provides simple, effective and easy to use functionality but in a very cost-effective package. This is the type of kit that should be in every installers toolbox. Patch App & Go have designed a tool that can reduce the number of people required to cable test in preparation for installing hardware in many settings, and have released a handy app to make things even easier.”
