The Tech Choice 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 Monitor mode provides a high-impedance coupling to the telephone line allowing it to be monitored without interfering with existing conversations data transmissions or signalling.
- The Ring mode allows the tester to be on-hook with an electronic ringer connected to the telephone line. This provides a low-impedance coupling to the telephone line for monitoring of optional line identification tones.
- The Talk mode allows the technician to seize the line or initiate signalling. From this mode a number can be dialed using the keypad. Hanging up the line is as simple as switching to the Ring or Monitor mode.
The handset includes an automatic last-number redial function which is capable of repeating up to 31 digits. It also features a number memory storage capability allowing the technician to store up to 10 different numbers of up to 15 digits each including the insertion of 3-second pauses for use with trunk lines. A pre-installed CR2032 lithium battery maintains the stored number memory and can be easily replaced by removing two screws and opening the handset.
To assist in line testing the kit includes a 5-inch 4-wire RJ11 test lead with spade lugs on the ends of each wire. Additionally a 2.5mm headphone jack allows the technician to utilize a microphone/headset unit instead of the handset speaker and mic. When not in use the headphone jack is protected from moisture with a rubber cover.
