Fluke Networks FTK1450 SimpliFiber Pro Multimode and Singlemode Fiber Verification Kit with FT500 Fiber Inspector Mini Video Microscope, Fiber Tester
The SimpliFiber Pro optical power meter with multimode and singlemode light sources measures power and loss using dual-wavelength testing, which simultaneously transmits two wavelengths - 850 nm and 1300 nm wavelengths for the multimode source and 1310 nm and 1550 nm for the singlemode source. A minimum and maximum function tracks power fluctuations and a reference value can be set to enable a display of fiber loss. The meters internal memory stores up to 1,000 test results, and those results can be downloaded via the meters USB interface to a computer for long-term records retention, or for analysis and generation of certification reports using the included LinkWare Software. The meter emits an audible tone and displays an icon when a live link or port is detected. Test results are displayed on a black and white LCD that has a backlight for visibility in low light. The meter can be set to turn off automatically after 10, 20, 30, or 60 minutes of non-use to conserve battery life. Additional specifications include power measurement accuracy of +/- 0.25 dB and various environmental operating conditions. Multimode fiber testers are used by network technicians to troubleshoot, maintain, and optimize performance of fiber optic cable in enterprise networks. The VisiFault VFL (visual fault locator) traces fibers, checks continuity and polarity, and helps find breaks, connectors, and splices in multimode and singlemode fiber, emitting a high-visibility red laser that can be set for continuous or flashing output to trace and identify fibers. It includes a 2.5mm universal adapter that is compatible with SC, ST, FC, and FJ connectors. Additional specifications include various environmental operating conditions. The FT500 FiberInspector mini video microscope magnifies to 200X to enable inspection of multimode and single-mode fiber end-faces inside ports and on patch cords to check for contamination or damage. It has a 4.6 cm (1.8 in) TFT (thin film transistor) LCD for viewing end faces, and includes a set of probe adapter tips - ST, SC, and universal 2.5 mm patch cord tip - for accommodating different connector ports. Two FindFiber remote IDs allow for simultaneous monitoring of both ends of a link. They plug into remote patch-panel ports or drops at one end of a link, and transmit a unique signal to the SimpliFiber Pro at the other end, for identifying a fiber and checking connectivity and polarity. In addition to the SimpliFiber Pro meter with multimode source, the VisiFault VFL, the FiberInspector mini, and the FindFiber remote IDs, the kit includes accessories for the FiberInspector (probe adapter tips, AC adapter/charger, hex key, soft carrying case), power meter adapters (SC, ST, and LC), a fiber optic cleaning kit, a USB interface cable, LinkWare PC Software CD, SimpliFiber Pro product manuals CD, batteries for each device, a carrying case, and instructions.
