Klein Tools Launches New Voice-Data-Video Testers and Tools
LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill. - March 15, 2011
Klein Tools, Inc. recently announced an extension to their Voice-Data-Video (VDV) product line with the introduction of several new testers and tools dedicated to the VDV professional. Designed to Klein's highest-quality professional standards, these new VDV Testers and Tools were developed for use in preparing, connecting and testing twisted-pair and coaxial cables.
This event marks the continuing wave of specialty products being introduced under Klein's new "Prep/Connect/Test" VDV theme, in support of electricians' expanding jobsite needs that often call for CATV, home theatre, satellite, network, phone and security system applications and installations.
The recent launch adds a variety of testers, a Coax Radial Stripper (Cat. No. VDV110-061), a Lateral Multi-Connector Compression Crimper (Cat. No. VDV211-063) and three different Installer Starter Kits to the growing product line. The three kits include the tools needed to prepare and connect F-Connectors (Cat. No. VDV012-811); to prepare, connect and test modular cables (Cat. No. VDV026-812); or to prepare and connect 66-type and 110-type punchdown terminal blocks (Cat. No. VDV027-813). All three kits include a FREE customized multi-pocket pouch to hold the particular mix of products.
"As an increasing number of electricians are installing home theater, security and data systems, Klein Tools® recognized the need for quality tools to get jobs done quickly and efficiently," said Product Manager Chris Niklas.
Two new testers added to the line are the TONEcube-Tone Generator (VDV500-051) and the PROBEplus-Tone Tracing Probe (Cat. No. VDV500-060) - both for tracing wire paths and identifying cables in common wiring systems. There is also a kit with a nylon pouch to hold both of these products (Cat. No. VDV500-808).
Klein® also released a compact, pocket-sized Coax Explorer Tester (Cat. No. VDV512-057) that tests and verifies coaxial cable continuity, as well as the new TraceAll™ Tone & Probe (VDV526-054) to trace wire paths and identify cables in common wiring systems. The TraceAll, with self-storing remote and alligator clip adapter, includes an RJ11 adapter to convert Tone Generator to an alligator-clip configuration. Photos and further details for all VDV products are available on Klein's website.
