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.
