  • Tests all 8 signal lines. (Shielding not tested).
  • Display of standard wiring colours.
  • Compatible with optional identified terminators, great for multiple cable runs.

Please note, this is not suitable for accepting RJ11 style plugs unless you use the optional adapter (included as standard with the UTP05e). Using this instrument with RJ11 plugs will cause damage to it's socket. See here for further information. You can add a pair of RJ11-RJ45 adapters to the standard package at the bottom of this page.

The Intelligent Choice
The Atlas IT has always been a fabulous tool for identifying and analysing Cat5/5e/6 (RJ45) based network cables, sockets and patch panels. Now this instrument features new intelligent software that can identify cable configurations even if there are faults in the cabling. It will even tell you the differences that it has detected between your faulty cable and the intended cable configuration.

Simply connect one end of your network cable to the Atlas IT and the other end to the Atlas IT Terminator and press the test button. Within seconds, the Atlas IT will analyse the full connection pattern between one end of the cable and the other end. It then instantly identifies the cable type (based on the connection pattern) and displays this on it's easy-to-read green-mode display.

The Atlas IT now features an enhanced cable library, enabling the intelligent identification of cable configuration, such as: "Straight-Through Patch Cables", "Crossover Cables", "Token Ring Cables", "Ethernet Economiser/Splitter Adapters" and many more.

If any problems in the cabling are detected, such as shorted, swapped or missing connections, then the Atlas IT will clearly identify these on it's display, showing exactly which connections require attention.

Shielded cables can be tested too, but only the 8 lines are analysed, not the shielding connection itself.

Tests RJ45 based cables, sockets and patch panels. Tests Ethernet Economisers
Tests Ethernet Splitters too.
Simply insert one end of the cable into the Atlas IT Insert the other end of the cable into the terminator Press on/test... LCD shows "OK Straight through cable (PC-Hub)"
Plug one end into the Atlas IT... ...the other into a terminator... test... and results are displayed.
If you are not sure how to wire a certain type of network cable then the Atlas IT can be used as a quick reference guide too. Wiring instructions can be displayed on screen whenever you require and then the Atlas IT can be used to test the cable you have just made.
Easier than many other devices Supplied in rugged carry case with space for accessories Incorporates enhanced protection electronics
Simpler than the competition Outside view of Atlas IT carry case View inside the Atlas IT carry case supplied as standard New high power protection electronics

Example Screen Shots

Here, a simple straight-through patch cable has been identified: This example shows the results for a faulty crossover cable, note the missing connection that is highlighted by the flashing cross symbol:
Note that the identification number of the optional "identified" terminator is also displayed along with the analysis results, ideal for the rapid identification of multi-run cables. Depending on the nature of the cable fault however it is possible that the identity of the terminator may not be displayed.
Optional Identified Terminators (up to 24) gives you full cable analysis with extra Identification Display
(included as standard with Ultimate package)
Set of 8 terminators for the UTP05 (24 IDs available)       UTP05 testing cable terminated with ID terminator

UTP05 - Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
  Will this test my crossover cables too? Yes. The UTP05 will automatically identify the various connection patterns used for a wide variety of configurations.  
Will it measure the length of my cable or the distance to a fault? No. Cable length measurement requires a technique known as TDR and is not included in this product.
I'm getting frequent faults on pins 1 and 8, why? The socket of the instrument and/or terminator has been damaged by the insertion of an RJ11 (modem style) connector. Your instrument and/or terminators will require repair. See here for further help.
What's the difference between non-identified terminators and the numbered terminators? The cable tests are the same for both types of terminator, full cable testing is performed in each case. The numbered terminators simply add an identification number on the display screen so you can easily identify multiple cable runs/sockets.
Is the UTP05 safe for use with Power-over-Ethernet (PoE)? The UTP05 should only be used on non-active cables with the tester on one end and a terminator on the other. The UTP05 is however protected against short periods of exposure to PoE voltages.
What's in the terminator? It looks like a plain socket. Both the standard non-identified terminator and the optional numbered terminators contain electronics that allows the instrument to identify all 8 internal wires uniquely and identify the relative connection pattern between one end of the cable and the other.
How long is the warranty period? The warranty period of new purchases is 24 months. Repair warranty period is 12 months. This doesn't cover accidental damage or abuse however.
