VDV Ranger TDR Kit with Carry Case and Adapters

VDV501-815

  • Test and measure cable length with the latest technology
  • Time Domain Reflectometry Spread Spectrum (TDR-SS) technology provides superior accuracy up to +/- (1% + 3-feet /0.91 m) by eliminating interference when measuring cable
  • TDR-SS technology broadens TDR environments by operating in Safety Extra Low Voltage (SELV) rated environments as defined by IEC. (SELV is 60 volts DC or Peak AC -- 45 volts RMS)
  • Measure cable length up to 3,000-feet (914 m) including voice, data, video, doorbell, siamese, lamp-wire and NM cables
  • Determine if cable run is broken or damaged
  • Ensure compliance and identify cable runs outside specification
  • The Tone Generator traces and identifies cables. Four tone cadences available. (Requires analog tone probe - VDV526-054 or VDV500-060 -- both sold separately.)
  • Measure cable remaining in box or on a reel
  • Simplify cable estimating and bill jobs more accurately
  • Adapter cord set includes BNC to F-connector adapter, F-connector adapter, insulated push-on F-connector to alligator clips, insulated BNC connector to alligator clips and insulated push-on F-Connector to RJ45 modular plug
  • Includes custom designed polyester carrying case
