Manage up to 12,000 test results with full graphics

Managing the testing of multiple jobs with multiple teams, testers, and requirements is time consuming and can be hard to manage. Increasingly larger jobs make project organization more important than ever. The new ProjX management system on the DSX- 5000 provides individual project files for all job specific details to be saved under a simple name. Eliminating the need to re-enter job specific details after starting a project. This minimizes set-up errors or lost files when switching from one job to another or utilizing multiple testers on a single job. In addition, it provides test results by cable ID, merges any changes without duplicates and always defaults to the last copper or fiber module installed. ProjX management system provides real time status to completion on each job with a 0-100% scale and gives the operator the option to isolate any test requiring a second look and helps to assure nothing is overlooked. The “Fix Later” selection creates a punch list or automatic to do list for correcting any workmanship. ProjX enables project managers and crew leaders to be truly efficient.

Fluke Networks OptiFiber Pro OTDR Module
Designed for Enterprise Fiber
As enterprise networks and datacenter architectures evolve, IT infrastructure administrators demand better OTDR technology to maintain fiber network performance. Many OTDRs (Optical Time Domain Reflectometers) used for fiber troubleshooting are designed for carriers and contain cumbersome and complicated features that enterprise users don’t need. Few OTDRs are built with features and usability for enterprise network engineers, SAN designers and cable installers.

As enterprises consume more storage resources and adopt higher bandwidth (40G, 100G) datacenter architectures, the resilience of the cabling infrastructure becomes highly dependent upon maintenance tools to ensure fiber reliability. OptiFiber Pro is the industry’s first purposebuilt OTDR that meets the unique challenges of an enterprise fiber infrastructure. With its simple Taptive user interface and powerful feature set, the OptiFiber Pro turns anyone into an efficient and expert premise fiber troubleshooter or installer.

Unique Features:
– SmartLoop OTDR enables automated testing and analysis of two fibers in a single test. Not only does this halve network-testing time, but it also eliminates the need to travel to the far end of the connection to perform tests.
– Taptive user interface puts advanced data analysis and easy set-up and operation at the fingertips of of technicians of all skill levels.
– LinkWare management software provides unmatched analysis of test results and professional test reports

– Test times as short as two seconds in Quick Test mode
– Quickly test datacenter fiber with pre-programmed settings
– Troubleshoot datacenter fiber links with short patch cables and many connectors because of ultra short dead zones
– Easily characterize all connectors, splices and areas of high loss with graphical EventMap™ view
– ProjX management system increases return on investment by enabling OTDR project sharing among users and different jobs
– Reduce network downtime by quickly and precisely identifying faults on all fiber types
– Built-in Visual Fault Locator (VFL) easily identifies damaged fibers.

– Full OTDR capability that certifies fiber performance based on industry standards or customer specifications
– Compliant with ISO and TIA standards

Unique Certification with Flexibility and Efficiency
An important aspect in maximizing an OTDR’s value is to properly plan its day-to-day usage. With ProjX management system, OptiFiber Pro allows a project manager to define each user’s role, settings and the associated tasks to be performed – transforming the OTDR into an all-in-one fiber testing tool complete with planning, inspection, certification and reporting.

– Powerful ProjX management system facilitates OTDR sharing with clear job assignment for each operator
– Easy monitoring of job progress with pass/fail results
– Built-in Visual Fault Locator (VFL) to facilitate troubleshooting
– On-screen report generation and upload to LinkWare™ application


Taptive User Interface
Most OTDRs are designed for a myriad of applications, causing the user interface to be difficult to navigate and interpret. OptiFiber Pro has the Taptive user interface which combines the latest “gesture-based” interface technology with a capacitive touchscreen to deliver the most innovative and user-friendly OTDR.

Extremely short event and attenuation dead zone
The OptiFiber Pro leverages the most sophisticated optical technology to provide the shortest event dead zone (0.5 m typical for MM) and attenuation dead zone (2.5 m typical for MM and 3.6 m typical for SM) of any OTDR. This technological advancement allows OptiFiber Pro to detect and measure closely spaced faults where no other OTDR can in today’s connector-rich datacenter and storage area network environments.

Two second trace per wavelength
Another breakthrough with OptiFiber Pro is the data acquisition speed. While in Quick Test mode, a complete set of data is acquired in as little as two seconds per wavelength. OptiFiber Pro then analyzes the data and displays it as an EventMap event, Table or Trace. The end result is less time spent testing and more time performing other tasks.

DataCenter OTDR Mode
With a simple one-touch selection, users enter DataCenter OTDR mode – without setup time for fine tuning as needed in legacy OTDRs. DataCenter OTDR mode automatically detects OTDR parameters – enddetection algorithms, pulse widths – without getting confused by the short links or number of connectors.

Graphical EventMap view
To eliminate the learning curve associated with reading an OTDR trace, OptiFiber Pro’s advance logic automatically interprets the information to create a detailed and graphical map of events that includes connectors, splices and anomalies. To accommodate different preferences, users can easily switch between the EventMap, the Event Table and the Trace for test details. Any faulty events will be highlighted with RED icons to facilitate quick troubleshooting.

On-screen “help” suggests corrective action(s) for resolving fiber problems during each testing step. The “help” offered is context sensitive which allows users to quickly pinpoint possible resolutions. An easy-toread, gray icon in the bottom, left-hand corner shows detailed corrective action recommendations.

Dynamic project and user profile management with ProjX management system
OptiFiber Pro enhances job efficiency by allowing the project manager to create and manage operator and job profiles per project. Defined jobs or sets of cable IDs can be assigned to specific operators. The progress and status of each project can also be easily monitored.

SmartLoop OTDR
SmartLoop OTDR enables automated testing and analysis of two fibers in a single test. This patent pending process automatically separates the two fibers for individual pass/fail analysis, display, and reporting. Not only does this cut the testing time by at least half, it also enables bi-directional testing without moving the OTDR to the far end. In addition to getting the job done quicker, SmartLoop OTDR further enhances the ease and speed of testing in environments where the far end is difficult of even dangerous to reach because the OTDR never has to be moved to the far end.
