dbx has released the CT3 and CT2 cable test accessories for live sound and studio applications.
The dbx CT3 is an advanced cable test unit allowing evaluation of a variety of cables. The ubnit offers common connectors such as RJ45, RJ11, Midi, speaker twist, XLR, RCA phono, BNC, DIN, TRS, TS, DMX and Banana. It can be split into a Sender and a Receiver to allow preinstalled and long cables to be tested.
The dbx CT2 similarly offers common connectors such as speaker twist, XLR, phono, BNC, DIN, TRS, TS, DMX and Banana, allowing cables with different connectors at each end to be tested. With illuminated LED indicators and a simple rotary dial, users can quickly establish whether a cable is wired and functioning correctly, or if it is dead and in need of repair.
The testers are available in the UK through Sound Technology, with the CT3 at £99 RRP (ex VAT) and the CT2 at £29.99 RRP ex VAT.
