More than just a wiremapper?

Ideal industries has been making some cool tools for a long time now and they recently redesigned the VDV Pro tester and looks like it now has some new tricks. Let’s see what going on with the new VDV II Pro.

The new VDV II Series are easy to use cable verification testers that check the integrity of copper cables commonly found in domestic, commercial or industrial voice, data or video installations, including telephone wiring, data network and video/security cabling.

  • Accurate – Advanced TDR (Time Domain Reflectometry) measures cable length and provides distance to fault information in the VDV Pro
  • Fast – Identifies wiring errors instantly and displays the results all on one screen
  • Intelligent – Quickly determines which phone service is running over cables, such as ISDN or PBX. Identifies voltage, pin and polarity for PoE (Power Over Ethernet) applications.

If you’re like me you can see print all day and who cares! I want to see it in action so let’s check in with our buddy Ron Kipper with Ideal Industries as he gives us a kick ass demonstration of the new VDV II Pro.

Currently we are stocking the VDV II Pro and it includes all the features of the VDV II, VDV II Plus and…

  • TDR measurement to identify distance to opens and shorts for accurate and advanced troubleshooting.
  • PoE Detection with Voltage, Pin, and Polarity Information
  • Phone Service Detection: PBX / ISDN
  • Ethernet Detection with Network Rate & Duplex Information. Identifies 10/100/1000Mb and Hd/Fd on connected ports/devices.

Both the VDV II Plus and the VDV II Pro include a carrying case that can hold all optional VDV II accessories plus an optional Tone Probe (62-164). Included in the carrying case are:
