The flagship VDV II Pro utilises TDR to accurately measure cable length and provide distance to fault information. TDR’s work by injecting a signal into the cable and measuring the time for any signal to be reflected back after encountering changes in impedance caused by cable damage, open and short circuits. The recorded time is then translated into an accurate distance measurement. TDR helps to pinpoint where cabling faults occur. This speeds up fault finding as well as minimising disruption and potential damage to fixtures and fixings.
With comprehensive details on faults such as opens, shorts, crossovers and split pairs, VDV II identifies wiring errors instantly. The integrated RJ-11/RJ-12 (voice), RJ-45 (data) and coax F-Type (video) connectors allow faster testing of most types of low-voltage cables by eliminating the need for separate testers or adapters.
Connection issues are not always associated with cable faults, so VDV II Pro has the capability to help identify service related issues. By detecting the presence of voltage and checking polarity, VDV II Pro quickly determines which 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. Furthermore, to prevent potentially costly damage to the tester all VDV II’s are smart enough to know when they have been plugged into an outlet where voltage is present.
Installation of twisted pair copper cabling, coax cabling and telephone copper cabling. The key feature of the VDV II is to check the wiring of all three copper types is terminated correctly into its relevant connection. The VDV II is suitable for testing the following cables:
Support for 1, 2 or 3-pair RJ11/12 telephone cable testing
Testing of shielded and unshielded Cat 3/5/5e/6/6A/7 LAN cable
Tests coax cable through F-connector interface
