Many cable testers usually require access to both ends of a cable to test. This is fine for most audio cables, but what if cables are on long looms, or even installed through walls? The CT3 comes to the rescue with a unique two-part design enabling testing over long distances. Split the Chassis in two and all your problems are solved.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The CT3’s ¼” TRS input jack is designed to accommodate a STEREO TRS plug. When testing a ¼” TS MONO cable, insert the plug into the jack until the first “click,” where the Tip of the plug first becomes engaged. (You will feel the spring lock the Tip into position.) If you insert the TS plug all the way into the TRS jack, the LEDs on the CT3’s receiving unit will go dim, because the Ring and Sleeve in the TRS jack are being shorted by the sleeve of the TS plug.
