can a fluke 620 test cat6 ?

(OP)
My question is Can a fluke 620 cable meter test cat6 ? what i mean is  will it perform wire map test on cat6 cable and will it be able to check to cable length like stated for cat5. not bothered about actual Certification side  just wanting to know if it will do the basics. #

why wouldn't it? cat6 just has more twists, but the connections and pin out will be the same, and the pdf for the tester says tests all UTP cables.
