Lineman's Test Set is a professional piece of equipment designed for telephone installers, repair technicians, and phone system maintenance personnel. This durable, line-powered device is full of features for testing existing and newly installed communications systems for proper functionality.
The bright red handset is both impact and water-resistant. The rubber-covered keypad and large slide switches are designed for use with gloves, making this a convenient tool for line workers. The large, heavy-duty alligator clips support five different types of wire connections, including a bed-of-nails and an insulation piercing spike. The connecting cord is covered in cloth for durability and is equipped with a strain-relief connection at the RJ11X connector. A heavy-duty, spring-loaded belt clip allows the handset to be conveniently hung from a maintenance belt.
The tester has a three-position volume switch, which can provide up to 12 dB of volume gain. The ring mode can be set to send either DTMF tones or rotary dial pulses. A three-position mode switch allows the tester to be set to Monitor, Ring, or Talk modes.
