VDV II
Voice, Data and
Video Cable Verifier
More than just a
wiremapper
The new VDV II Series are easy to use cable testers that check the integrity
of copper cables commonly found in domestic, commercial or industrial
voice, data or video installations, including telephone wiring, data network
and video/security cabling.
Employing state-of-the-art technology, VDV II offers functionality not
previously available in a wiremapper. The advanced wiremap engine
accurately displays complex wiring faults instantaneously whilst TDR
(Time Domain Reflectometry) aids troubleshooting and improves
on-site productivity.

Accuracy
Wiremap with length
The flagship VDV II Pro utilises TDR to accurately measure cable length and provide distance to fault
information. TDR’s work by injecting a signal into the cable and measuring the time for any signal
to be reflected back after encountering changes in impedance caused by cable damage, open and
short circuits. The recorded time is then translated into an accurate distance measurement. TDR
helps to pinpoint where cabling faults occur. This speeds up fault finding as well as minimising
disruption and potential damage to fixtures and fixings.
Speed
With comprehensive details on faults such as opens, shorts, crossovers and split pairs, VDV II
identifies wiring errors instantly. The integrated RJ11/RJ12 (voice), RJ45 (data) and F-Type (video)
connectors allow faster testing of most types of low-voltage cables by eliminating the need for
separate testers or adapters.
Coax testing
Service detection
Intelligence
Connection issues are not always associated with cable faults, so VDV II Pro has the capability to
help identify service related issues. By detecting the presence of voltage and checking polarity,
VDV II Pro quickly determines which media service is running over the cable, such as ISDN, PBX
and PoE (Power over Ethernet) resulting in faster fault diagnosis. Troubleshooting active Ethernet
networks is also made easier with in-built network detection that displays network rate and duplex
information. Furthermore, to prevent potentially costly damage to the tester all VDV II’s are smart
enough to know when they have been plugged into an outlet where voltage is present.
