B&K Precision Corporation, represented by Unispan Instruments , has announced the addition of the lightweight, handheld, battery-powered Model 262 tone generator and cable tracer kit to its expanding product line.
The Model 262 consists of two components: the Model 260 tone generator, and the Model 261 cable tracer.The tone generator is a handheld, battery-powered instrument designed to quickly perform a variety of tests on un-energised telephone lines or LAN cables.
Alligator clips and a standard RJ11 plug (supplied with the kit) allow the tone generator to be connected to stripped wires, terminal panels, wall plates or modular single line jacks.
Outstanding features include the ability to check line polarity and provide talk current on a dead line. The unit generates Warbled Tones with selectable test frequencies, and front panel LEDs indicate polarity when in the POLARITY mode and continuity when in the CONTINUITY mode, and can be adjusted to generate up to four distinctive tones.
The Model 261 cable tracer is a handheld inductive tracer that will help to identify wires without piercing the insulation. It features a Hi-gain, Hi-impedance amplifier and is capable of identifying tones from a distance of up to 12 inches.
It can trace tone generator signals through dry wall, wood and many other non-metal surfaces (under ideal conditions) and features a rugged, moisture resistant, Mylar cone speaker.
The small size and light weight of the kit's two components, (7"H x 1.87"W x 1.12"D 5.8 oz, for the tone generator, and 7.37"H x 1.87"W x 1.12"D, 4.9 oz for the cable tracer) makes it an ideal addition to any tool box.
