This MPO test solution enables data center IT-managers, -technichians and -installers to get quick and accurate assessment of the quality of MPO cabling.
Additionally, it helps in performing incoming inspection of MPO components as i.e. trunk cables, fan-out cables and cassettes.
The key feature of this solution is a 5-second Autotest that includes the detection of fibre connection map and the measurement of loss on each fibre.
WireXpert cable certification tester WX4500-FA enables testing of MPO/MTP links when used with MPO adapters. A typical test setup consists of WireXpert local unit with MPO power meter adapter, and the remote unit with MPO light source adapter attached. Alternatively, a multimode fiber adapter can be attached to WireXpert local unit for testing individual fibers in MPO link.
This solution provides a fast and accurate measurement of MPO link loss and testing against user configured limit.
