What does the 620 CableMeter do?

The Fluke 620 LAN CableMeter is a battery operated, handheld instrument that identifies cable failures, measures length, and checks the wiring of cables used for DeviceNet, ControlNet, and Ethernet Local Area Network (LAN) systems.
 
The test tool is designed around a Test as You Go philosophy. This reduces the time necessary to install and service LAN cables by allowing ONE PERSON to detect most cable failures from only one end of the cable.
 
The test tool tests for incorrect pairing (split pairs), miswires, shorted and open wires on all twisted pair cables, as well as shorts on coaxial cables. It will give the distance to open and shorts.

Support information
The 620 is no longer manufactured. It has been replaced with the excellent MicroScanner 2.
