Troubleshooting cables can be one of the most painstaking and frustrating tasks electronics professionals will ever have to do.

Worst of all, the process of testing cables can cost companies time and money.

Lincolnshire, Ill.-based Klein Tools has introduced its VDV Distance Meter (Cat. No. VDV501-089) that installers can use to test pair-conductor cables without having to use expensive and bulky testers.

Klein Tools says the VDV Distance Meter measures voice, data, video, doorbell, lamp wire and NM cables up to 1,500 feet in length, and it features pre-programmed nominal cable length constants for RG59, RG6 and RG11 coaxial, as well as Cat-3, Cat-5e and Cat-6 twisted cables. “
