The Fluke Networks DTX-FTK fiber test kit is designed for use with the DTX-1200 or DTX-1800 cable analyzer to measure optical power and insertion loss in fiber optic cabling. The kit includes a DTX-FOM fiber optic meter and a SimpiFiber PRO LED optical light source. The DTX-FOM fiber optic meter is installed in the back of the main DTX cable analyzer meter to make optical measurements at 850nm, 1,300nm, 1,310nm, and 1,550nm. The SimpliFiber Pro optical power meter with multimode light source measures power and loss in multimode cabling using dual-wavelength testing, simultaneously transmitting 850 and 1,300nm wavelengths using LEDs to supply light. The kit allows the operator to troubleshoot cabling problems, ensure that cabling is correctly installed, and take loss measurements to compare with user-defined standards. Copper and fiber testers are used by network technicians to troubleshoot, maintain, and optimize performance of copper and fiber optic cabling, hardware connections, and network settings in enterprise networks.
|Wavelengths||850nm (+ or – 30nm); 1,300nm (+ or – 20nm)|
|Spectral width, FWHM (full width at half maximum)||50nm (typical) for 850nm wavelength; 170nm (maximum) for 1,300nm wavelength|
|Minimum output power||Greater than or equal to –20dBm|
|Connector type||Fixed SC|
|Output modes||Continuous wave, 2kHz pulse, auto-wavelength|
|Power source||(2) AA alkaline batteries (included)|
|Dimensions||14.2 x 8.1 x 4.1cm/5.6 x 3.2 x 1.6 inches (H x W x D)|
H is height, the vertical distance from the lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.
A copper cable tester is a device for troubleshooting, inspecting, and certifying copper network cabling. Devices range from one-button tools for checking connectivity to complex tools for certifying network installations. Three types of testing include verification, to test whether a connection or cable is functioning correctly; qualification, to test a network's ability to support specific speeds and functionality; and certification, to verify whether a network installation meets industry standards. Cabling contractors, installers, and network technicians use copper cable testers to set up and maintain networks within a building or on a campus in corporate, academic, manufacturing, and other enterprise network environments.
Fluke Networks manufactures tools for network infrastructure installation, testing, certification, and troubleshooting, in copper, fiber, and wireless networks, with its tools widely used by contractors, enterprises, and communication service providers. The company, which operates globally, is based in Everett, WA.
