New Fluke 620 Lan Cablemeter
Fluke 620 Lan Cablemeter
Fluke's new 620 LAN CableMeter is a battery-operated, hand-held instrument that identifies cable failures, measures length of twisted pair (TP) and coax and checks wiring in unshielded twisted pair (UTP), shielded twisted pair (STP), foil-screened unshielded twisted pair (FTP) and coax.
Stored cable library provides quick access to common cable types. Access or customize cable characteristics in setup mode. Test function indicates pass or fail for incorrect pairing (split pairs), miswires, shorted and open pairs on all twisted-pair cables as well as shorts on coax. Length measures coax and each pair of TP in feet or meters, testing for anomalies. Wire Map detects and displays wiring connection, shorts, opens and split pairs.
Features two-line by 16-character LCD with five display languages, optional backlit display, four-position rotary switch and five tactile-feedback momentary switches. Includes low-battery and replace-battery indications plus battery save mode. Audible tone signals different operational conditions and can be disabled for pass and fail conditions. Cable ID Unit detects far-end wiring failures and identifies cables between room and wiring closet. The 620 displays test results in relation to individual pin numbers.
Powered by two 50-hour AA 1.5-V alkaline batteries. Includes 48" RJ45-RJ45 straight-through patch cable, RJ45-RJ45 female coupler, cable identifier #1, softcase, quick reference card and manual. The 12.5-ounce meter is 7.25" x 3.9" x 1.8". One-year warranty.
