1143-5000 Sidekick VOC

Cat No: 1143-5000

Legacy UPC No: 783310605270

The Sidekick family of telecom testers is the perfect instrument for troubleshooting the faults responsible for over 75% of all customer service interruptions. The Sidekick is the only troubleshooting tool that features the Stress Test to measure audible noise on a pair when “stressed” with 90dBrnC longitudinal excitation – key to identifying imbalances and series resistance opens. The Leakage Test also detects intermittent resistance faults undetectable with a typical VOM tester.

The Sidekick 7B quickly and accurately uncovers intermittent troubles other test sets can’t detect. The Sidekick T&N features transmission and noise testing and is available with a traditional analog or easy to read digital display, while the Sidekick VOC is tailored to the inside wiring found in CATV applications of VOIP.
