We are always on the lookout for great innovative products here at Comms Express. Both our clients and our suppliers know that we like nothing better than when we find new toys to play with and promote.

One such product is the PATCHMATE Cable Tracer and Continuity Tester. It is an affordable handheld device that makes identifying and testing network cables fast and easy. With instant identification, a massive reduction in the time taken to trace, identify and test is gained, saving time and money on the job.

This great 2-in-1 device can complete the trace and testing at the same time. Other products can do both functions separately, but the PATCHMATE offers the opportunity to perform both tasks, and extra port plugs allow for unlimited testing capabilities.

So unlike the laborious “one at a time” method employed by current testers on the market, the revolutionary PATCHMATE Tester enables the user to deploy an unlimited number of PATCHMATE Plugs to reveal the instantaneous identification of its corresponding port at the Patch Panel and test each link simultaneously.

The other great benefit of the PATCHMATE is its size. All of its capabilities are encased in a tool that can be held within the palm of your hand.
