The Klein Tools Scout Pro 3 Tester Kit is a fantastic device with accessories if you have anything to do with network building, mapping, testing, or tracing! This tool has taken all of the guess work and tone probing out of mapping networks. The Scout Pro 3 has tons of great features that simplify networking. It will test for correct wiring of RJ11/12 and RJ45 cables, open/short faults, PoE, miswiring, cable length, port identification, and so much more. To top that, the Scout Pro 3 is also a tone generator! I really cant say enough about this kit, it has made my job sooo much easier! If you do any work with phone/ data/ coaxial lines, you really need this kit. Thanks Klein!

Make no mistake, this is a pro tool, especially when equipped with the locator remotes. My home network is, uh, complicated (right as I type this there are nearly 50 ethernet devices connected split between wired, wireless, and PoE), but given that I'm not organized enough to have installed patch panels I could have gotten by with just the tester and one remote termination instead of 18. No matter - the tester itself is excellent. My prior experience with cheap test kits was frustrating, it seemed like I could not get repeatable results. When you are snaking PoE cat 5 or cat 6 around the house to wire in a surveillance system, that can (and will) drive you nuts. As with any multi-function pro tool, though, it is imperative you read the instructions. Some things are pretty simple right out-of-the-box (e.g., cable length test), others, you have to read and understand (at least, I did).

The KLEIN TOOLS SCOUT PRO 3 TESTER WITH LOCATOR REMOTE KIT is a good tool to assist with existing cable and problems. Klein has always made quality tools and this just another example. it tests and lays out a map where the cable and parts are. It tests the all parts and 4 and 6 wire cable. I live in the mountains and this tool helps when I have trouble and allows me to find problems rather than paying a fee for some to come check it.

The tester has lots of features. It can test RJ45 8 connector network cables, RJ11 6 conductor telephone cables and F connector 2 conductor coaxial cables. I like that the kit comes with 2 F connector barrels, and 6 short jumper cables. The display is lighted and the light can be turned on and off with the power button. The tone generator feature is cool. It can be set to 800, 1000, 1200, 1400, or 1500 Hertz. The case is sturdy and well branded with the KLEIN TOOLS logo. Everything in the kit fits in the case well.

These days network and wire tracking is not just for work. Many homes these days have an internet connection and often times that leads to home automation. For a few this means a small patch panel, cables, etc. While this test unit can be essential at work when it comes to tracking down bad cables and identifying just where they are connected in a building. more and more homes can use this same type of diagnostic. That age old question of why my DSL doesn't work? Well with this you can test and track and find just what needs fixed or replaced. Cable lines or DSL, accidents can happen and now you can test it to find the issues for a fix. Business or fixes for others, this will do it.

Combining both products, Klein Tools Scout Pro 3 Tester with Locator Remote Kit and Klein Tools Test plus Map Remote Upgrade Kit for Scout Pro 3 Testeras it make sense. For those interested in country of origin, these products are manufactured in China. Originally purchased this product because I get horrible support from my local cable provider and land line phone company. Wanted to test the internal cable runs before they came out and charged me a fortune for reoccurring problems. First tested for coaxial cable continuity from the patch panel on the incoming line to all the drops(2). Test was easy to execute and results were instantaneous. Second tested the coaxial cable length to see actual lengths and confirm that there was a short run(Drop 1) and a longer run(drop 2). This was done easily after I realized that a test on the patch cable of 1 meter did not work. This time tested with the remote units and found that you have to disconnect remote locator that you see on the screen before you get to find what is not working. For me, only one showed at a time. First purchase would have preferred to get a pouch with this product, but now it came with a sturdy pouch. The instructions seemed clear enough but it took several test runs to be able to fully comprehend what was being outlined. Have to read the instructions, and read in between the lines sometimes.

I own alot of Klein tools and testers by far this is a great cable tester compared to other brands I own. It has a backlight and very easy to test all types of cables including RG6. Its light weight and the case is constructed for protection against drops. I make alot of cat6 and cat5 cables so this tester is very handy it comes with everything you need for testing. The instructions are simple to read and follow on how to use this tester. Klein just makes awesome tools and never let me down over the past 25 years.

This is a bit of overkill for my needs. I could have gotten away with the cheaper version but it didn’t come with a case. The case and the extra mapping plugs. Also this version adds testing POE. I don’t really need this feature but it’s there if I ever do.

    The Klein Tools VDV501-852 is a great addition to my tool kit. I am able to use the HUB Blink feature to determine which port the cable is plugged into. I can also tone out cables in VoIP/ PoE environment and actually hear the tone on the other side unlike analog only toners. With 4 different frequencies available it makes isolating pairs a lot easier. I can now tell how long the run is with the TDR function. I even had room to add my small butt set and 110 punch tool in the case. The only thing missing is a handle on the back of the case. I plan to add one soon.
