June 23, 2014 - Available in 3 versions, VDV II Series checks integrity and detects all wiring faults in low-voltage copper cables commonly deployed in residential, commercial, and industrial installations, including telephone wiring, LAN, and coaxial cabling. Wiremapping units capture details such as opens, shorts, reverses, miswires, and split pairs. By eliminating need for separate testers or adapters, integrated RJ11/RJ12, RJ45, and F-Type coaxial connectors help accelerate testing of cables.

More than a wiremapper, next generation VDV II reduces time and cost of verifying low voltage LAN and coaxial cables in new builds or MAC work. Accurately detects complex wiring faults instantaneously while an integrated TDR simplifies troubleshooting and improves on-site productivity.

SYCAMORE, IL, – IDEAL INDUSTRIES, INC., one of the world's largest manufacturers and suppliers of quality tools, connectors and testing products for electricians and data communications contractors, today launched its new VDV II Series of affordable, easy to use cable verifiers. Available in three versions to serve a variety of applications, VDV II verifiers check the integrity and detect all wiring faults in low-voltage copper cables commonly deployed in residential, commercial or industrial voice, data or video installations, including telephone wiring, LAN (CAT 5 to CAT 7, UTP and STP) and coaxial cabling.

"Installers and technicians spend too much time troubleshooting with testers that are inaccurate or do not provide enough detail about the installation to really diagnose and solve the problem," explained Jeff Meader, Business Unit Manager for IDEAL. "With our new VDV II Series, problems can quickly and easily be located, thereby saving time and money. They have a range of features to match all levels of network and coax installation or maintenance whether its a new build or network moves, adds and changes."
 
Ergonomically designed to fit comfortably in the palm of the hand, VDV II Series verifiers identify wiring errors instantly, capturing comprehensive details on faults such as opens, shorts, reverses, miswires and split pairs that can slow a network or take it down completely. The integrated RJ11/RJ12 (voice), RJ45 (data) and F-Type coaxial (video) connectors help the user achieve faster testing of most types of low-voltage cables by eliminating the need for separate testers or adapters. Intelligent technology lets the unit know if it has been plugged into an outlet where potentially damaging voltages are present.

All three VDV II Series models -- the VDV II (basic), VDV II Plus (advanced), and  VDV II Pro (professional-grade) -- provide wiremapping capability. In addition, the VDV II Plus  offers a larger 2.9-inch display with backlighting, hub blink, cable length measurement and distance-to-open. The flagship VDV II Pro offers all this, plus uses a TDR to quickly determine where cable damage is located by identifying the distance to opens and shorts. The VDV Pro will also display mission-critical network connectivity information without the need for a PC. By detecting the presence of voltage and checking polarity, the VDV II Pro quickly determines which type of media service is running over the cable, such as ISDN, PBX and PoE (Power over Ethernet) resulting in faster fault diagnosis. Troubleshooting active Ethernet networks is also made easier with in-built network detection that displays network rate and duplex information.
