"With voice/data/video projects, there are a vast number of wires that have to be identified, mapped and tested to make sure the job is installed properly. This takes an enormous amount of time going back and forth to check wire location IDs and then going back a second time to test that same wire," states Chris Niklas, product manager at Klein Tools. "The Scout Pro 2 Series cable tester, along with the new Test-n-Map™ Remotes, cuts that verification process in half which saves both time and money."
