Tone, probe & trace kit performs pin-to-pin RJ45 wire map testing

Feb. 12, 2020
Klein Tools introduces its new VDV500-705 Tone & Probe Test and Trace Kit. The kit functions not only as a tone generator and wire tracing probe for non-active wire runs, but also performs pin-to-pin wire map testing.

Klein Tools has introduced its VDV500-705 Tone & Probe Test and Trace Kit, which the manufacturer says is "designed to give users an opening price point solution for simple toning and tracing as well as wire map testing of non-energized wire."

The Tone & Probe Test and Trace Kit (Cat. No. VDV500-705) from Klein Tools includes an easy-to-use tone generator that traces wires when used with the included probe. This responsive probe features a durable, non-metallic, conductive tip. 

Alligator clips test for unterminated wires, and an RJ45-to-RJ45 test cable is also included.

The kit's toner and probe together perform pin-to-pin wire map testing on RJ45 terminated cables. A work light on the probe tip enables use in dark spaces.

Other features include: an adjustable volume control dial; a headphone jack for noisy environments (headphones not included); and available replacement test cables (Cat. No. VDV770-855).

“In creating this kit, we wanted to provide a simple-to-use device that was also multi-functional,” says Karen Alpan, product manager with Klein Tools. “This kit functions not only as a tone generator and wire tracing probe for non-active wire runs, but also performs pin-to-pin wire mapping testing.”
