July 10, 2013 – Klein Tools has introduced the VDV distance meter for pair-conductor cables, designed for measuring cable length, locating faults, in addition to simplifying inventory, estimating and billing jobs. The company claims the VDV distance meter lets tradespeople test and measure cable with confidence and ease. The tool has six pre-programmed nominal cable length constants for RG59, RG6 and RG11 coaxial, as well as Cat3, Cat5e and Cat6 twisted pair. In addition, the VDV distance meter lets the user adjust the capacitance/foot constant based on the cable being tested.
