Question about Behringer Ct100 Cable Tester
These are a simple DC continuity/short tester.
You just plug both ends of the cable in and there are indicators showing condition.
HOWEVER: I recently found 6 brand new cables that resulted in HUM from mics. These cables had a pair of wires reversed at BOTH ends and contiuity was fine, but the shield was on the wrong pins of the XLR.
If this is your problem, you will find that the shield of the XLR is connected to pin 3 instead of pin 1. The numbering of the pins are weird on XLR connectors with pin 3 at the APEX of the triangle.
Cables MADE IN CHINA... I changed all the connections on site of the gig as I had soldering equipment. I informed the vendor... they had 13000 of these in stock and many must be in the field. They were going to check them,,, I am sure my 6 cables wern't the only bad ones.
Moral of the story: there is more to electrical cables than just continuity!
