New Test-Tone-Trace Kit for Use in LAN, Data/Network, Coaxial, A/V, Security Applications
SAN DIEGO, CA - IDEAL Industries Networks US, the network testing division of IDEAL INDUSTRIES, INC. (www.idealindustries.com), is giving installers and system technicians all the tools they need to accurately identify wiring errors in virtually any type of VDV application with the new Test-Tone-Trace Kit. Neatly packaged in a custom carrying case, this all-in-one tool kit performs the essential cable testing functions required in the Security, Data/Network, and A/V markets at a fraction of the price of buying testers and tools separately.
At the center of the kit is the IDEAL VDV Multimedia Tester. This versatile, handheld tester features an LCD screen to display Pass/Fail results and notification of wiring errors that require repair. Its built-in tone generator has four 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. An included amplifier probe detects tone signals generated from the VDV Multimedia Tester for cable identification and location. Other accessories are a built in F-Port (Coax), RJ-11 Port (Phone), RJ-45 Port (Data), and additional coax adapters to test BNC (Security) and RCA (A/V) coax cables.
Using the new kit a technician can:
o Verify if new VDV installations are wired correctly; o Troubleshoot existing VDV wiring installations; o Locate hard to find cables; o Test and Identify all common errors in modular plug/jack terminations that lead to slow/no connections: Shorts, Opens, Miswires, Split Pairs, and Reversals; o Verify patch cables for proper wiring and continuity (RJ-45, RJ-11, F, BNC, RCA); o Identify shielded and 568A to 568B uplink cables; o Identify a single cable within a bunch of cables; o Tone & Trace entire cables, select pairs, or individual wires within a cable.
The Test-Tone-Trace Kit (IDEAL part #33-866) and other testing devices will be on display at the ISC West Conference in IDEAL booth 24131.
