Fiber Optic Certification
TestPro’s fiber optic measurements provide Tier-1 certification in compliance with industry standards, as well as customizable limits for both Multimode and Singlemode Fiber Optic premises cabling with full Optical Loss Testing capability for Dual-Ended Single Direction, Dual-Ended Bi-Directional and Loopback configurations.
Network Service Assistant (NSA) provides Loopback Optical Loss testing for both Singlemode and Multimode premises cabling using the same industry standards/limits or custom limits.
Encircled Flux Compliant Legacy fiber testers require bulky, fragile, specialized launch cables for multimode tests. This is because they need a fiber mandrel built-in to the cable. And even at that additional expense, can claim only 95% confidence in their own results. 1 in 20 results may be inaccurate! The Multimode Fiber Optic test adapters for TestPro and NSA have an advanced encircled flux compliant transmitter, which does away with the need for expensive, specialized launch cables, and gives you confidence 100% of your fiber loss measurements will be accurate.
Supports All Types of Fiber OM1-OM5 Multimode, Singlemode, even hybrid powered fiber optic cabling is fully supported by TestPro and NSA.
Dual-Ended Testing In just 4 seconds, TestPro can run a complete dual-ended Tier 1 fiber certification test, measuring loss on two fibers, length, and propagation delay. NSA’s loopback optical loss test also takes only 4 seconds.
VFL TestPro includes and integrated Visual Fault Locator, so you can find breaks in a fiber, stressed bends, and identify the active fiber from a group of fibers.
Interchangeable connectors TestPro supports FC, LC, ST, and SC fiber connections.
Hybrid Copper/Fiber Testing Unique to TestPro is the ability to measure the resistance or voltage on integrated copper wires used to power remote smart devices like cameras or remote PoE extenders for example. The NSA with a fiber test adapter has the ability to measure voltage on the copper wires in hybrid powered fiber. In the case of both the TestPro and NSA, these electrical measurements are included in the Autotest and become part of the saved test results.
Visual End-Face Inspection TestPro and NSA both allow for the connection of an end-face inspection probe via the USB port to give you a clear view of the fiber end face.
Live Wiremap Only the TestPro automatically detects the connection of its own remote and displays both fiber and copper wiremap without any operator actions. The NSA also features the same Live Wiremap function when the loopback connection is completed, wiremap is instantly displayed.
Compliant Networks Indication Another unique capability of the TestPro and NSA is they both provide a full list of fiber networks that can be supported by the fibers just tested.
