Fluke Networks MultiFiber Pro
Optical power meter
Part Number: 15993010
Manufacturer PN: MFTK-SM1550
Category: Tools & Tool Kits
MultiFiber Pro takes the complexity out of testing MPO trunks for loss and polarity. With an on-board MPO connector, it is the tester that automates the MPO fiber-trunk testing process without using a fan-out cord. The Power Meter / Light Source boasts advanced functions such as automatic scanning of all twelve fibers and display of test results in an easy-to-read bar graph. These features allow MultiFiber Pro kits to eliminate the complexity of testing MPO trunks, making it faster than the traditional simplex test methods.
Scan all function
Scan all function in the MultiFiber Pro Power Meter automatically scans and tests all 12 fibers in MPO connectors - taking just 6 seconds to complete all loss or power measurements. This feature automates the testing of MPO terminated fibers and eliminates the time consuming and manual process of moving the tester from fiber to fiber while using fan-out cords.
Built-in polarity verification
The simple purpose of any polarity scheme is to provide a continuous connection from the link's transmitter to the link's receiver. Deployment mistakes are common because these methods require a combination of patch cords with different polarity types. The polarity measurement of MultiFiber Pro allows the user to test individual patch cords, permanent links, and channels for correct polarity.
Polarity agnostic referencing
MultiFiber Pro utilizes the concept of polarity agnostic referencing to simplify the referencing step. This powerful feature allows the user to reference with any polarity of patch cord. Then, using those same patch cords, the user can test any polarity link. Prior knowledge of the link's polarity is not required.
On-board MPO connector
The MPO connector on both the Optical Power Meter and Light Source eliminates the use of costly and complicated fan-out cords to test MPO fiber trunks.
Simple user interface
The MultiFiber Pro simplifies the task of simultaneously presenting polarity, power, and loss results for 12 fibers. The power meter enables the users to easily comprehend the measurement results of 12 fibers simultaneously. The light source identifies each fiber within the MPO connector being tested. Any individual measurements that fail the test limit is identified to allow root-cause analysis. This powerful yet straightforward test set enables everyone to become a fiber testing expert increasing efficiency in testing data center projects.
Select an individual fiber
Drilling down to a single fiber during testing and troubleshooting is always a challenge in data centers. MuliFiber Pro can troubleshoot a single fiber within an MPO trunk to provide a single fiber test result. This increases MPO connector verification and troubleshooting flexibility with more precise, per-fiber data and reporting.
