FlexScan® OTDR with SmartAuto™ and LinkMap®

FlexScan OTDRs enable both novice and expert technicians to quickly and reliably troubleshoot optical networks or fully characterize newly installed or repaired networks. Using FlexScan’s innovative SmartAuto mode, multi-pulse OTDR scans quickly and accurately detect, locate, identify and measure network components and faults. After applying industry-standard or user-set pass/fail criteria, the characterized network is displayed using FlexScan’s intuitive, icon-based LinkMap view.

AFL SpiderWeb Ribbon Cable

Wrapping Tube Cable (WTC), with SpiderWeb Ribbon® (SWR), is an ultra-high density outside plant cable designed specifically for fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) or access markets. It is compliant with the latest issue of the outside plant cable standard, Telcordia GR-20. With an ultra-high density and a new ribbon technology called SpiderWeb Ribbon, WTC provides the smallest cable diameter and lowest weight, high-fiber count ribbon cable in the industry. The WTC-SWR cable is available with 144 fibers to 1,728 fibers in the armored option and up to 3,456 fibers in the non-armored configuration.
SWR is a bonded fiber ribbon design allowing for either a highly efficient ribbon splicing or an individual fiber breakout splicing process. This flexibility allows for a single cable design to cover a diverse set of applications from access networks to high-fiber count mass fusion splicing. With the ability to roll and conform, the SWR provides for ultra-high density packaging in the WTC.

Fujikura 70S+ Fusion Splicer

The Fujikura 70S+ is the world’s fastest and most robust core alignment fusion splicer. Incorporating the proven ruggedized features pioneered by Fujikura, the 70S+ has added automated and enhanced user control features to increase splicing efficiency. A user programmable, automated wind protector expedites the splicing process by automatically closing to initiate the splice process, and opening upon splice completion. Fully programmable “auto open sheath clamps” open one or both sheath clamps, after the tensile test, to prepare the fiber for removal. A new automated “clamshell design” tube heater applies heat to both sides of the splice protection sleeve resulting in a 13-second shrink time. The result is a total splice process time of approximately 21 seconds! Ruggedness and durability are greatly enhanced by a mirror-less optical system and "severe-impact resistant" monitor. Battery capacity is now 200 splices/shrinks.
An innovative transit case doubles as a built-in or mobile workstation and makes splicing easier than ever before. In an industry first, the 70S+ is also equipped with Bluetooth® technology. This allows the splicer to actively communicate with Bluetooth enabled fiber preparation accessories making maintenance of fiber preparation tools easier than ever! The 70S+ will also be available without Bluetooth functionality.

Jonard Tools MS-326 Mid Span Slit & Ring Tool

The patented MS-326 Mid Span Slit & Ring tool provides access to fiber optic cables in ducts or micro ducts. The slit and ring tool removes the jacket without damaging the buffer tubes, and will also work to slit and ring thin wall buffer tubes.
The MS-326 consists of 5 precision slitting grooves and 5 ring grooves ranging in size from 5mm to 10mm. This tool was designed for Corning "MiniXtend Fast Access Binderless" and "HD MiniXtend" cables as well as other similar styles.

TS®54 TDR Telephone Test Set and Toner

Fluke Networks’ new TS54 PRO Test Set features the latest in test set technology. Designed with a superior, radiant liquid crystal display (LCD) user interface, it allows you to see what cannot be heard in any outside plant environment.
The innovative TS®54 TDR (Time Domain Reflectometer) is perfect for voice, data and video technicians and communication service provider technicians who need a best-in-class test set. There’s nothing else like the TS54 TDR on the market today. No longer will you need to carry a separate TDR, toner, pair identifier—everything you need is in one newly redesigned and compact test set—that’s a 62% weight reduction and a 20% cost reduction over existing products.
The TS54 delivers 20% more extreme weather protection with the latest advancements to our patented RainSafe™, DropSafe™ and DataSafe™ technology. This means the TS54 is weatherproof and rugged and able to butt in on live DSL lines to test POTS quality without crashing data service.

CableIQ Copper Qualification Tester

The network tech's vision into cabling bandwidthCableIQ qualification tester is the first cabling bandwidth tester for network technicians. This Ethernet network cable testergives even the most novice tech the vision to see what speeds existing cabling can support, quickly isolate cabling from network problems, and discover what is at the far end of any cable. That means network techs can close trouble tickets faster, reduce on-call time, and save money by better utilizing their existing infrastructure.
Reduce escalated problems by as much as 30%CableIQ qualification tester's powerful network troubleshooting capability and intuitive interface enable your frontline technicians to identify and troubleshoot a wider range of problems within your network infrastructure. Is the port active? Are the duplex settings matched? Is it a network problem or a Ethernet cable problem? Can the Ethernet cable support the required network bandwidth? CableIQ network analyzer is the only Ethernet cable tester that can answer all these questions before trouble tickets are escalated to the next level reducing problem escalation by up to 30%.

Rhino TriView Markers

The primary purpose for a permanent marker is to get excavators to call for a locate. The TriView is the ideal marker to carry out this mission for the following reasons:
VisibleThe TriView’s patented triangular shape allows for 36o° visibility, as well as 50% more warning messages than a flat post. Click here to see how the TriView® is made.
FlexiblePatented design and RhinoPoly® construction allow it to bend and rebound when struck from any direction at speeds up to 55 mph. Click here to watch our impact video.
VersatileWith its all-terrain performance and multiple installation options, the TriView can be used in multiple soil conditions, from hardpan and rocky soil to sand or clay.
DurablePerforms in temperatures ranging from -40 to +150℉, as well as UV stabilization that designed for 10+ years of outdoor use with our 10-year warranty.
UniformUsing the TriView as a test station, VentGuard, and for tracer wire allows a consistent look and safety message for your buried utility.

Snoopy Cable Fault Locator

The Snoopy System is an alternative solution to burning pairs for high resistance aerial fault location such as shorts, crosses, and grounds. The Snoopy Transmitter can be safely used on copper pairs without fear of cable damage.
The ST-101 offers an “Auto-Set” feature taking the guess work out of setting proper frequency and output levels. Connect the cable to the faulted pair, press “Auto-Set” and let the Snoopy Transmitter scan for optimum settings. Upon completion it prompts the user with setting information for the SR-101.
The Snoopy Receiver SR-101 works in conjunction with the ST-101 Transmitter. This highly sensitive receiver can sniff out very small signals common with high fault resistances, and provides a graphical presentation of signal levels along the cable path.The SR-101 frequency list includes those used by various fault location transmitters such as the Tone Ranger®, and is directly compatible with a variety of aerial layup sticks presently deployed for fault location.
