Manufacturer Description

The Fluke Networks Pocket Toner NX8 identifies and tests up to eight VDV coaxial cables simultaneously to detect continuity, short and open circuits, and AC/DC voltage, and features a detachable tone generator cap with a removable coupler for testing male and female connectors. When used with ID caps (included with the deluxe and voice and video pro kits), the toner can indicate continuity on eight cables simultaneously. It tests live cabling and is protected up to 52V. Buzzers in both the main unit and tone generator indicate continuity. The LED display indicates continuity, shorts, opens, and the presence of AC and DC voltage. The toner turns off automatically after 10 minutes of inactivity to conserve battery life. It is made of anodized aluminum for light weight, durability, and corrosion resistance. Additional specifications include various environmental operating conditions. Toners are used by network technicians to troubleshoot and maintain VDV (voice, data, and video) cable in telephone and data networks.

The toner is available in standard, deluxe, and voice and video pro kits, all of which include an F-type male push adapter (nine for deluxe and voice and video pro kits) and an F-type female Speed 81 coupler for testing cable with F-type connectors. The deluxe kit also includes an F-type female 81 adapter; (8) F-type male 71 adapters; (8) ID caps; a Dial Tone Detective that connects to telephone jacks to check for dial tone and proper polarity of wiring; a 66 block adapter, an RJ11 adapter, an RJ45 adapter, and an alligator clips with RJ45 adapter for testing telephone lines and networking cables; RCA male and female adapters for testing audio and video cables; and BNC male and female adapters for testing miniature to subminiature coaxial cable. The voice and video pro kit also includes an F-type female 81 adapter; (8) F-type male 71 adapters; (8) ID caps; a Dial Tone Detective that connects to telephone jacks to check for dial tone and proper polarity of wiring; a 66 block adapter, (8) RJ11 adapters, an RJ45 adapter, and an alligator clips with RJ11 and RJ45 adapter for testing telephone lines and networking cables; RCA male and female adapters for testing audio and video cables; and BNC male and female adapters for testing miniature to subminiature coaxial cable.

Datacom and telecom installation and test devices, such as toners and test sets, check cabling and wiring to help ensure proper connections and operation. Tone generator and probe sets, also called toners, are used to locate, trace, and isolate cables in copper media networks. Telephone test sets, also called butt sets, are specialized telephones that connect to telephone lines to check for proper operation and to isolate trouble. Some test sets incorporate a TDR (time-domain reflectometer) and toner for determining cable length and locating faults. While certain devices may be used on live networks, others are only suitable for inactive networks. Field technicians and installers use these devices to set up, maintain, and troubleshoot datacom and telecom cabling within a building or in outside plant (OSP) applications.

Fluke Networks manufactures tools for network infrastructure installation, testing, certification, and troubleshooting, in copper, fiber, and wireless networks, with its tools widely used by contractors, enterprises, and communication service providers. The company, which operates globally, is based in Everett, WA.
