Passive component testers are a combination of firmware and hardware that, as noted earlier, must be correctly configured for your specific product. Many PCTs offer the following features:

  • A switch module, from 4 to 48 (or more) channels
  • A chassis to fit the above modules, either 3 or 8 slots
