Fluke tone generator

While checking my water a bit ago i saw a friend of mine that works as a troubleman for the phone company and pulled over to say hi, he has been a great source of information and direction as far as my locating goes.

After catching up with him we talked shop.

He showed me a new tone generator that Fluke sells. It is roughly the same size as the Tempo 77 HP series but has a few more tones (7) and an auto advance feature which changes the tone once you touch the correct wires.

I liked that feature for use in sorting damaged wire paths.

I will see if i can find a link later.

Interested to see it, my brother-in-law was a design engineer for Fluke; they sure make some cool stuff!

If it works, it is a fluke.
