Datasheet: MicroScanner²

For more than a decade, cabling installation and maintenance technicians have relied on MicroScanner to verify terminations and troubleshoot continuity faults. A lot has changed in the cabling world since the original MicroScanner was introduced. Industry economics require that installations be done fast and accurately with no callbacks. And converging voice, data, and video technologies have given rise to new requirements for service testing and multimedia support.

MicroScanner2 recognizes these trends the way testing is done. It streamlines every aspect of the verification job. From its time-saving user interface and integrated multimedia support to its expanded service detection capabilities, MicroScanner2 gives technicians the power to perform their jobs faster and more accurately than ever.

High power vision to verify voice/data/video cabling and services. That’s Fluke Networks’ promise to you.

Raising cable verification to a higher power

MicroScanner2 Cable Verifier

Reduce test time and user error

Yesterday’s cable verification testers force users to toggle between different modes (up to four) to view all test results. This not only slows the test process, but also causes user frustration and error. MicroScanner2 has defied this convention by displaying key test results – wiremap, pair lengths, distance to fault, cable ID, and far-end devices – all on one screen.

Eliminate awkward test adapters

Tired of losing or breaking all the adapters needed for testing the various voice, data, and video media types? MicroScanner2 makes these adapters things of the past with builtin RJ11, RJ45, and coax support. Both the main unit and the far-end identifiers can be used to test telephone jacks, Ethernet jacks, and CATV outlets right out of the box.

Rule out service problems fast

Today’s communications technicians have more problems to deal with than just the cabling. They have to rule out a whole host of cable and service issues before determining the cause of a connectivity problem. Is there telephone voltage? What’s the polarity? Is there a switch at the far end? Is PoE available? MicroScanner2 gives technicians high power vision to verify today’s most common voice, data, and video services.

Locate elusive cables in seconds

MicroScanner2 features built-in IntelliTone digital and analog toning to precisely locate virtually any cable or wire pair, regardless of work environment. Use digital mode to locate high-grade data cabling (Cat 5e/6/6a) in bundles, or at switches, patch panels, or wall outlets. Or, use analog mode on voice-grade cabling (Cat 3 and below), as well as coax, security/alarm, and speaker wiring.

Repair or replace tools less often

With all the abuse you put your tools through, you can’t afford for them to be delicate. MicroScanner2 features a rubber wrap-around holster that makes it the right tool for even the toughest jobs. Toss it into your toolbox. Drop it from a ladder. It can handle it. Plus, it now comes standard with a vinyl carry pouch for enhanced protection and convenience.
