Hi Mitar,

I'm assuming you are looking for something that costs a little less than 
a new Fluke DTX.

The following product has a TDR (length measurement) feature. Which 
might be a requirement to find a broken plug. But I'm not sure if it 
measures each twisted pair separately.

This one also looks interesting. But I'm not sure if it's a recent 
product and where it can be bought:

Or buying one of the older Fluke DTX on Ebay. It will be a valuable 
tool. I'm more than happy with mine. Although I have the newer version. 
But it's just faster and measures up to higher frequency limit.
