SoundTools XLR Sniffer/Sender Remote End Cable Tester
Key Features
  • Test Cables Remotely
  • Uses 3 LED Lights

The XLR Sniffer/Sender from SoundTools is a remote end cable tester with a Sniffer unit that reads the status of the cable and a Sender unit as the power source. It can be used to test snake lines and cables when the ends are at a distance in live and rehearsal applications. Utilizing phantom power, the Sniffer end tests snake lines in minutes and displays a readout of 3 simple LEDs with the diagnosis of your cable. The XLR Sniffer/Sender tests for every possible short-circuit, open, or cross wire in XLR cables. If the LEDs read all green, your cable will work.

I've successfully used it on a 60-ft run of three XLR cords connected together. I don't have anything longer since we pulled out the 150-ft snake and went digital.
