KE801 Laser Tracer™ Plus Multi-media Cable Test & Trace Kit

The KE801 Laser Tracer™ Plus is a multi-media test and trace kit that represents a long-overdue update from older style telephone tracers. Adding ruggedness and enhanced safety to all of the classic functions of test & trace products, the KE801 has an Ethernet detect-and-blink function, an F-connector for coax and a fiber-optic visual fault locator (VFL). With a 650 nm ANSI Class II laser the VFL is perfect for identifying fiber cables and finding broken fibers.  Everything runs off of one 9 V battery.
