Overview

Introducing the MultiFiber™ Pro Optical Power Meter and Fiber Test Kits.
MultiFiber Pro Optical Power Meter and Source is the only fiber tester that can certify MPO fiber trunks without the use of fan-out  cords. This singlemode and multimode MPO fiber testing kit eliminates the complexity of polarity issues, and it makes cassettes easier to test in the field. Whether it is using 10 Gbps preterminated MPO fiber trunks or planning for next-generation 40/100 Gbps Ethernet performance, data centers are standardizing on an MPO connector solution. Typical data center fiber installation means time-consuming, manual and imprecise MPO validation. MultiFiber Pro Optical Power Meter and Source is 90 percent faster than single fiber cable certification because it measures power loss and validates polarity on 12 fibers in a single connector— reducing test time from weeks to days.

 

Features

"Scan All" Function

The 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 certification of MPO terminated fibers and eliminates the time consuming and manual process of moving the fiber 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. For array connectors, TIA-568-C.0 defines three methods to accomplish this: Methods A, B and C. 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.

On-board MPO Connector

Equipped with MPO connector on both the Optical Power Meter and Light Source, it eliminates the use of costly and complicated fan-out cords to test MPO fibers.

Uncovered ports can put cabling, equipment and testers at risk for contamination and affect performance. Ensuring a covered connection on your tester can protect it from dirt and dust. MultiFiber Pro makes it easy by shuttering the MPO connector giving you greater test reliability and peace of mind.

Simple User Interface

The MultiFiber Pro is so successful at simplifying the task of simultaneously representing polarity, power and loss results for 12 fibers that the user interface is patent pending. 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 that is being tested. Any individual measurement that fails the test limit is plainly identified to allow root-cause analysis. This powerful yet straightforward test set enables everyone to become a fiber testing expert and increases efficiency in testing data center projects.

Select an Individual Fiber

One of the main problems in the data center is the ability to drill down to a single fiber during testing and troubleshooting. MultiFiber Pro can troubleshoot a single fiber within an MPO trunk and provide a single fiber test result. This ability increases MPO connector verification and troubleshooting flexibility with more precise, per-fiber data and reporting.

Easy Reporting

The MultiFiber Pro Power Meter stores up to 3,000 test results (or the equivalent of 250 MPO cables) internally which can be uploaded to a PC using the LinkWare™ 7 Cable Test Management Software. LinkWare 7 allows you to manage test results, edit cable ID’s, print professional reports and even export the data into spreadsheet formats.

Kits for Every Need

MultiFiber Pro is available in several convenient kit configurations to meet all your cleaning, inspection and verification testing needs. Some kits include:

FI-7000 FiberInspector Pro with MPO tip and cleaning supplies
The FI-7000 is the ultimate inspection tool. It enables you to quickly inspect and certify fiber end-faces inside ports or patch cords. It’s 2-second automated PASS/FAIL eliminates human subjectivity and enables anyone to become a fiber inspection expert.

  • Automated Pass/Fail acceptance testing of fiber end-faces
  • Large touchscreen for pinch and zoom
  • Graphical indication of problem areas due to contamination, pits, chips, and scratches
  • Certify to industry standards - IEC 61300-3-35
  • Eliminate human subjectivity from end-face measurements
  • Includes MPO tip for inspection probe and MPO cleaner

 

Fiber Cleaning – IBC™ OneClick Cleaners
Cleaning is critical. Fluke Networks’ OneClick Cleaners instantly clean fiber optic bulkhead connectors and end-faces. Just push the tool tip to engage cleaning action and pull back on the wheel – it’s that simple. The MPO OneClick Cleaner is bundled with the MultiFiber Pro kits to ensure that you have the best cleaning tool from the beginning.

Think Trunk Cables Don’t Need Testing? MultiFiber Pro Shows One Installation Contractor They Certainly Do

Challenge:
Issues with trunk cables can often sneak into an installation unrecognized. After all, this cable is generally pre-tested and certified, so it must be fine. That common perception was certainly shared by one East Coast-based installation contractor, who nevertheless was experiencing persistent issues with a particular project. In fact, the problem was so intractable that despite repeatedly examining, cleaning and re-testing the links with their OTDR unit, installers were unable to isolate the issue. And as a result, they were watching job profitability vanish in a haze of additional man-hours.

Results:
The company was put in touch with Fluke Networks, and quickly learned that, although the installers had the best fiber testing tools on the market, they weren’t the right ones. Moreover, it turned out that “pre-tested and certified” didn’t actually provide the guarantee they thought. Fluke Networks showed the contractor how the company’s MultiFiber Pro can rapidly troubleshoot the thorniest fiber trunk issues.
