FI-7000 FiberInspector™ Pro
At a Glance
Roughly 85% of fiber optic network failures are due to contaminated end-faces. While inspecting and cleaning end faces and connectors is not new, it is growing in importance and linked with increasing data rates which impact budgets.
Fluke Networks’ FI-7000 FiberInspector Pro allows you to inspect and certify end-faces in 2 seconds so you can get the job done the first time. Automated PASS/FAIL certification take the guess work out of fiber inspection so anyone can be a fiber expert.

Eliminate the #1 cause of fiber failure
End-face contamination is a leading cause of fiber failures. Dirt and contaminant cause insertion loss and back-reflection that inhibits optical transmission and causes havoc with transceivers. Fiber loss and OTDR testing can expose this problem, but in many cases, dirty connections make fiber testing time consuming and inaccurate.
Since dirt can be an issue before, during, or after fiber optic certification testing, and migrate from one end-face to another upon mating, both sides of any connection must always be cleaned and inspected.
Further, mating contaminated connectors can cause permanent damage as microscopic debris is crushed between end-faces in physical contact. Even factory terminated patch cords or pigtails must be inspected as protective caps do not keep end-faces clean. Avoiding this common cause of failure, starts with inspecting the end-face and eliminating any contamination before insertion into a bulkhead or piece of equipment.
The FI-7000 FiberInspector Pro enables you to quickly inspect and certify fiber end-faces inside ports or patch cords. Its 2-second automated PASS/FAIL certification eliminates human subjectivity and enables anyone to become a fiber inspection expert.

Fiber Inspection Certification
Certify your fiber end-faces to industry standards – IEC 61300-3-35. Or if you prefer, you can manually grade your end-faces.
Store End-face Images
Store both end-face images of a fiber directly in your Versiv test results. Combine end-face images with CertiFiber Pro OLTS and/or OptiFiber Pro OTDR test results for the complete history of your fiber cablinghealth.
Built on the Versiv Platform
The FI-7000 is built on the Versiv Cable Certification Platform which enables you to easily add optical loss (OLTS) and Optical Time Domain Reflectometry (OTDR) or even twisted pair copper or network analysis functionality to FI-7000. Product add-on kits are available for the DTX CableAnalyzer, CertiFiber Pro OLTS, OptiFiber Pro OTDR and OneTouch AT Network Assistant.
Versiv’s ProjX System
ProjX manages jobs from setup to systems acceptance, ensuring that all tests are completed correctly. Enter the testing details for a job once, and ProjX stores them in a project file with a name the whole team can understand. Change modules or jobs without having to re-enter details. Support multiple testers on the same job by sharing project files via USB sticks or email.
Taptive User Interface
Now you can test across multiple media types and requirements as easy as using a smartphone. Simply, select the job you’re working on, and the large display confirms the test that needs to be performed. Taptive helps you tap into the overall cabling infrastructure faster and more easily.
PASS/FAIL Fiber End-face Grading
The FI-7000’s PASS/FAIL fiber end-face grading is available to all Versiv owners. It is included in Versiv firmware v3.0 and higher. To enjoy this free fiber end-face grading, just download the latest Versiv firmware and create a new Project using FiberInspector as the test.
