Fluke Networks Fiber QuickMap
The Fluke Networks Fiber QuickMap is an enterprise fiber troubleshooter that quickly and efficiently locates connections and breaks in multimode fiber. By instantly providing distances to failures such as high loss and high reflectance incidents, Fiber QuickMap is the must-have troubleshooter for any technician who works with fiber.
Other troubleshooting solutions in today’s data centers are too inefficient and take up too much time. Lasers are simple, but the repetitive process of shining it down a link and checking the far end is imprecise, tiresome and time-consuming. On the other end
of the spectrum, OTDRs work well as troubleshooters, but their advanced analysis and trace capabilities make them best used for certifying and documenting cable installation quality. Today, network technicians need a first-line diagnostic tool to help them fix their fiber cabling problems. Fiber QuickMap’s one-button ease-of-use, speed and detailed insight into fiber connectivity make it the technician’s troubleshooter of choice.
To meet your troubleshooting needs, Fiber QuickMap is available as a standalone troubleshooter or as part of a more comprehensive fiber testing kit. Fiber Troubleshooting Kits (FTS) can include these added capabilities based on kit configuration:
SimpliFiber Pro power meter and dual-wavelength 850 and 1300 nm multimode source measures power and loss. The SimpliFiber Pro meter features the ability to save a reference power level, enabling a direct display of fiber loss.
FT500 Fiber Inspector Mini video microscope inspects fiber end faces for contamination. The FT500 FiberInspector Mini provides 200x magnification and can be used in any fiber installation.
When and Where to Use Fiber QuickMap
Fiber QuickMap™ provides immediate and in-depth visibility into your enterprise network’s multimode fiber cabling, making it the perfect tool for:
Degraded network performance? Failed a loss test? Poorer than expected power or loss measurement? Fiber QuickMap helps you locate the source of the problem or eliminate cabling as the culprit. No need to blindly waste time manipulating lasers or flashlights, then walking between both ends of the channel.
Locating breaks or potential “weak” network cabling areas
Dirty connectors and poor splices can diminish network performance – or even cause network failure. Fiber QuickMap points you to these incidents based on default or user-defined settings to fix them before they become bigger problems.
Locating potential sources of bit error rates
Reflectance caused by end-face contamination or poor connections leads to bit errors. Fiber QuickMap locates these problem areas.
“Mapping” the channel
Quickly confirm connectivity by verifying all the links and connections in your channel.
Fiber QuickMap is perfect for datacenters and campus environments up to 1500m.

Fluke Networks FT500 Fiber Video Inspector
200x magnification probe enables inspection of both multimode and singlemode end-faces inside ports and on patch cords
Miniature display boasts an exceptionally sharp 1.8" screen
Troubleshooting is 10 times faster than with traditional scopes
Grip trigger activation extends battery life
Various probe adapter tips allow for inspection through many different connector port types
Use the FT-500 FiberInspector™ Mini to examine installed fiber terminations or ensure terminations are smooth and clean. Avoid the #1 cause of cause of fiber link failure: dirty end-faces.
Dirt, dust and other contaminants are the enemy of high-speed data transmission over optical fiber. Today's network applications require more bandwidth, making loss budgets tighter than ever. It is critical that all optical connections are clean and free of contaminants to ensure application success.
The Fluke Networks FT500 FiberInspector Mini Video Microscope puts the solution to contaminated end-faces in the palm of your hand. This portable video microscope works ten times faster than traditional scopes. Simply insert the probe and inspect installed fiber connectors through the bulkhead adapters without accessing the backside of the patch panels. Using a video microscope also completely ensures that no harmful laser light ever reaches your eyes.
Its miniature size makes the FiberInspector Mini extremely portable and convenient. The device displays exceptionally sharp images on its 1.8" screen. Extend battery life in the grip trigger mode, when the device only shows images when squeezing the sides of the display. With a range of standard and accessory probe tips, end-faces can be inspected when using many different connector types, including LC connectors.
