The Fluke Networks OptiFiber Pro OTDR with ProjX management system, built-in VFL , and choice of a module—multimode, single-mode, or quad—checks connectivity, locates connections and faults, measures loss and reflectance, provides pass/fail test results, and allows Tier 2 certification of multimode and single-mode fiber optic cable in enterprise networks. The OTDR (optical time-domain reflectometer) consists of a Versiv main unit and an OTDR module. The ProjX management system allows the user to define project settings and tasks, and can be accessed from a computer via the meter's USB interface using the included LinkWare software to generate certification reports, analyze test results, and create charts and graphs detailing the performance of cabling infrastructure. The software is compatible with Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, and 7 operating systems. The built-in VFL (visual fault locator) verifies continuity and helps find breaks, connectors, and splices, emitting a laser that can be set for continuous or flashing output to trace and identify fibers. The main unit features a 5.7" LCD smart phone interface with capacitive touch-screen for navigating menus, zooming in on test results, and accessing help to resolve problems. Optimized for the datacenter, the OTDR has short event and attenuation dead zones to locate events and faults precisely, and its datacenter OTDR mode automatically selects the optimal configuration for testing datacenter fiber. Test speed and pulse width vary according to the module and meter setting. Compliant with International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) standards, the OTDR certifies fiber performance based on industry standards as well as customized specifications. This OTDR is a troubleshooting and Tier 2 certification tool used by network technicians, designers, and contractors to install, maintain, and optimize performance of fiber optic cable in enterprise networks and data centers.
A fiber optic cable tester is a device for troubleshooting, inspecting, and certifying fiber network cabling. Devices range from one-button tools for checking connectivity to complex tools for certifying proper installation of fiber networks. A device that performs fiber certification is designated as either loss-length (Tier 1) or fiber plant characterization and troubleshooting (Tier 2). Some of the devices test either single-mode or multimode fiber, while others can test both single-mode and multimode fiber. Cabling contractors, installers, and network technicians use fiber optic 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.
