Overview

The FI-3000 FiberInspector Pro offers an extensive feature set that makes testing MPO fiber trunks easy and efficient. The multiple camera design provides an instant Live View with simple touchscreen gestures to move from full trunk to individual endfaces in real time. Automated pass/fail results in seconds. Store results on your phone and share them through text messages or email or use the industry-leading LinkWare platform to store complete project reports including copper, fiber loss, OTDR, and endface images*. Compact, ergonomic design with autofocus makes it comfortable and fast even when you’re testing hundreds of cables or ports.   *Single fiber and Versiv support available second half 2019.

“The growth of higher density networks in data centers and fiber-to the home, office, or antenna (FTTx) is driving widespread adoption of MPO technology. A speck of dust that’s invisible to the human eye can cause intermittent errors or even complete failure on a fiber optic connection. That’s why it’s essential that every fiber interconnect – even on cables straight from the factory – be inspected before it’s connected.” - Mike Hughes, VP of Product Management, US Conec, a global leader in the development and supply of high-density optical interconnects, and inventor of the MTP® high performance MPO connector.

Features

Live View with AutoFocus and AutoCentering For Instant Real Time Visibility

Plug the connector into the FI-3000, touch the autofocus button, and the Live View feature delivers a live view of the fiber endface immediately - with no setup or processing time. Dual cameras provide a single, integrated view of the entire endface. Use simple gestures to zoom into the portion of interest, pan across the connector or just tap the image of a specific fiber for a detailed view.

        

Automated Pass/Fail testing of MPO trunks and end faces in seconds

Manual inspection of MPO connections can be slow and subject to human error. Manually tracking across multiple fiber endfaces in the connector makes it easy to miss one or more. The FiberInspector’s autotest mode examines all fiber endfaces in the connector, grades them as per industry standard IEC 61300-3-35 and provides an overall PASS or FAIL result in less than two seconds per fiber. The gesture-based user interface makes it easy to switch from the summary to a detailed view.

                 

Seamlessly switch from a summary view (left) to an image (center), then use the gesture-based interface to zoom into a view of each individual fiber (right) and pan across the entire connector. Individual fibers are labeled so you know what you’re looking at. Red defects are failures, green are acceptable per the selected standard.

Test Results with Graphical Indication of Problem Areas

When an endface fails, the FI-3000 shows which fibers failed, and highlights the areas that caused the failure: contamination, pits, chips and scratches. By understanding the cause of the failure, the user can determine the type of cleaning needed or if the connector is damaged beyond repair.

Lightweight, Ergonomic Design with Holster

The FI-3000’s unique design makes it easy to inspect both bulkheads and trunk cables. The compact and lightweight (326 g / 11.5 oz) design means you can use it all day without fatigue. The built-in PortBright™ illumination makes it easy to find the right port in dense patch panels in dim data centers or dark wiring closets. All FI-3000 models include a holster which provides convenient access to the camera as well as storage for inspection tips and a Quick Clean™ cleaner.

iOS and Android Apps for Simple Data Sharing

The FI-3000 can also be connected over Wi-Fi to iOS or Android devices for small jobs or a quick inspection. The FiberInspector app (FI-IN) shows simple PASS/FAIL results, but also gives you complete control over the FI-3000, so you can zoom in or out of each endface and pan across a Live View of the entire endface. FI-IN also supports naming and storing of results in the device – or send them as an image or PDF report to others on the team for quick, simple collaboration.

                 

Save results on your phone or share them with others.

Detailed Reporting

Generate detailed PDF reports from your phone or Versiv tester. Versiv and LinkWare also support integrated reports including Tier 1 (Loss) and Tier 2 (OTDR) tests. (Integrated tests using Versiv and LinkWare available second half 2019.)

        

Summary or detailed reports are available

Integrates with Versiv and LinkWare™ for Project Management and Reporting*

For those installing multiple MPO trunks as part of a new installation or upgrade, the FI-3000 integrates with the Versiv Cabling Certification System for fast, error free project management and reporting. Versiv’s ProjX Management System lets you define each job including the types of cables, identifiers, required tests, and limits. Techs can use the same platform for loss (Tier 1), OTDR (Tier 2) and inspection, reducing training costs and the likelihood of errors. The FI-3000 connects to Versiv via a USB cable.

Versiv features a large, high resolution display that lets you see the results clearly. The gesture based Taptive™ screen makes it easy to pan across or zoom in and out of the Live View image.

The FI-3000 also works with Fluke Networks LinkWare – the defacto industry standard for documenting cabling systems. LinkWare lets you combine Tier 1, Tier 2 and inspection results into a single report for full documentation of every link in the system. The cloud-based version, LinkWare Live, makes it easy to track progress of the job from your smartphone or PC and share results with customers.

*Versiv support available second half 2019.

Tips for Every Need

The FI-3000 comes standard with tips for inspecting 12/24 UPC and 12/24 APC endfaces. Accessory tip is available for 16/32 UPC configurations.

The FI-3000 addresses your single-fiber inspection needs with the same autofocus, autocentering, autograding and Live View features as MPO*. Optional tips are available to support LC, SC, 1.25 mm, 2.5 mm and E2000.

*Single fiber support available second half 2019
