The IDEAL Test-Tone-Trace VDV Kit
is an all-in-one cable testing solution for identifying wiring
errors and locating cables in Voice/Data/Video (VDV) installations.
for use in LAN/Data Networks, Telephone, Audio/Video, Security and
other general coax or twisted pair applications, this kit performs
the essential cable testing functions required by installers and
Whether testing new installations for proper wiring and
termination or mapping locations of existing wiring and trying to
find specific cable locations, this kit provides the core testing
functions that are needed the most on the job.
The VDV tester unit features an LCD screen to display Pass/Fail
results and notification of wiring errors which require repair. The VDV has dedicated built in F (coax), RJ-11 (phone, 6 position), and
RJ-45 (data, 8 position) ports for testing the most common cables
and infrastructure wiring used today.
The VDV includes a built in Tone Generator which has 4 distinct
tones that can be used to trace coax, RJ-45 and RJ-11 cables, plus
any de-energized copper cable including speaker wires, alarm cables,
and electrical wires. For twisted pair cables, tones can be sent on
individual wires, select pairs, or the entire cable. On coax, tones
can be sent on the pin, the shield, or both at the same time.
The Amplifier Probe detects tone signals and gives audible
verification that the generated signal is present. It can be used to
find cable locations, trace cable pathways and to identify a single
cable within a group of cables. It includes an adjustable volume
control and a replaceable tip.
Also included in the 33-866 Kit:
2 coax patch cables (F male to F male), coax adapters (F male to BNC
female, F female to BNC female) for CCTV applications, (F male to
RCA female, F female to RCA female) for A/V applications and an F-81
barrel splice, 2 RJ-45 patch cords, 2 RJ-11 patch cords, 1 RJ-11 to alligator clip
(red/black) cable assembly, carrying case and instructions. 9V
tester batteries are included.
