    501915 - Overview

    The Klein Tools Cable Length Meter is a portable Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR) cable length tester. It measures cable length, calibrates Velocity of Propagation (VoP) values, finds distance to faults in cables, and provides built-in tone generation for cable tracing. This tester provides accurate cable length measurement for a wide variety of cable types at an affordable price. Includes test leads and a carrying case.

    The Cable Length Meter should NOT be used on energized cabling systems.
    Internal components of the Cable Length Meter are protected up to 30V peak AC or DC. Connecting the meter to voltages above this range may pose a safety hazard to the user and the meter.

    • Features:
