The Leviton Tone Test Set performs a variety of functions in low voltage wire applications such as telephone, data, HVAC systems, and security or fire alarm wiring. As a tone generator, a toner can be connected across a wire pair and set to transmit either a continuous 1000 Hz tone or an alternating 500/1000 Hz tone; with the use of the Speaker Probe (below), you can quickly and easily trace pairs and locate broken pairs/cables in walls. Multiple circuits can be traced by using two test sets, set to opposite tones.
A Tone Test Set also tests for continuity, checks for shorts or opens, and provides talk battery for a communication line on a vacant pair. Also identifies Tip and Ring polarity, and line condition for CLEAR LINE with dial tone, BUSY LINE and RINGING LINE.
This unit has several enhanced features: "O" ring seals on the case and test leads for water resistance, and a support leash attached to the case to prevent straining the test leads when hanging the unit from a 66-block or jack while tracing the tone. A tri-color, light-emitting diode (LED) is used for all test indications. Durable, nylon-braided tinsel wire test leads ensure long life and reliability.
Telco-standard, 6A-type alligator clips with piercing pins securely grip 66-clips, screw heads, screw bodies, and wire-wrapped or threaded terminals. A 6-position, 2-conductor plug lead is also provided for connection to modular jacks.
