Simple Cable Tester


This cable tester allows you to quickly check audio cables for broken wires. Because of the low power supply voltage, batteries can be used which makes the circuit portable, and therefore can be used on location.
The design is very simple and well organised: using the rotary switch, you select which conductor in the cable to test. The corresponding LED will light up as indication of the selected conductor. This is also an indication that the power supply voltage is present.
