MS2-100 + FTK1000: The Fluke Networks MS2-FTK MicroScanner2 basic technician's kit includes a MicroScanner2 cable verifier and a SimpliFiber Pro optical power meter to verify cable functioning of new and existing copper and fiber network installations. The meter displays a graphical wiremap, cable length, cable ID, and distance-to-fault. A tone generator produces digital and analog signals to locate cable or wire pairs. Digital mode locates high-grade cabling, including Category 5e, Category 6, and Category 6a in bundles or at switches, patch panels, and wall outlets. Analog mode verifies Category 3 and below voice-grade cabling, coax, security, alarm, and speaker wiring. VDV service detection verifies media services, including powered 10/100/1000 Ethernet switches, plain old telephone services (POTS) voltage and polarity, and Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) voltage and pairs. A backlit LCD is oversized for clear viewing in a variety of lighting levels, and a rubber holster protects the meter in rugged environments. Copper and fiber testers are used by network technicians to troubleshoot, maintain, and optimize performance of copper and fiber optic cabling, hardware connections, and network settings in enterprise networks. The Fluke Networks FTK1000 fiber optic cable test kit includes a SimpliFiber Pro optical power meter with a multimode light source to measure power and loss using dual-wavelength testing which simultaneously transmits 850 and 1300 nm wavelengths for verification of cabling in multimode fiber networks. The meter is also calibrated for 1310, 1490, 1550, and 1625 nm wavelengths to measure single-mode cabling when paired with a single-mode light source (sold separately). A minimum and maximum function tracks power fluctuations and a reference value can be set to enable a direct display of fiber loss. The meter's internal memory stores up to 1,000 test results, and those results can be downloaded via the meter's USB 2.0 interface to a computer for long-term records retention, or for analysis and generation of certification reports using the included LinkWare software. The software is compatible with Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, and 7 operating systems. The CheckActive function emits an audible tone and displays an icon when a live link or port is detected effectively saving time with quick confirmation of whether the link or port is live without power measurement set up required. The FindFiber function identifies cabling runs and ensures polarity effectively saving time by providing fast cable-routing identification using just one technician thus enabling easy cable-mapping verification and documentation. The Min/Max function tracks a testing session’s power fluctuations effectively saving time by accurately identifying intermittent power fluctuations and eliminating unreliable and inaccurate guesswork as well as the need for constant monitoring due to the auto-pilot tracking feature. Test results are displayed on a black and white LCD that has a backlight for visibility in low light. The meter can be set to turn off automatically after 10, 20, 30, or 60 minutes of non-use to conserve battery life. Additional specifications include power measurement accuracy of + or – 0.25 dB and various environmental operating conditions.
