CHANDLER, Ariz. — AEM announces the immediate availability of its new SC/APC fiber optic adapter for the TestPro CV100 multifunction cable tester. These adapters include an integrated visual fault locator (VFL) and volt meter. The VFL provides a quick indication of a break in fiber, while the volt meter offers an integrated connection port for measuring electrical voltage for hybrid powered fiber applications in support of smart building initiatives. For deployments where powered fiber optic adapter is being used, TestPro’s fiber adapters provide not only certification of the fiber optic cable, but also the ability to validate electrical voltage on the adjacent copper wire in this hybrid cable type. This enables contractors to measure the electrical input voltage going into an end device directly or to a PoE extender that is supplying PoE to end devices and gives the technician everything needed for testing at their fingertips, according to the company. Combined with TestPro’s ability to measure actual PoE load (requires AD-NET-CABLE adapter) and the result is a solution with a unique set of capabilities AEM says can allow contractors to verify SC/UPC fiber optic adapter and troubleshoot across various points in the network typology. “As more and more buildings look to supply power over the network infrastructure, it’s becoming increasingly important that testing tools consolidate functionality to deliver more value,” says Lisa Schwartz, director of marketing and channels at AEM. “By combining Tier 1 certification along with an integrated VFL, a volt meter and reporting of compliant networks, these unique adapters dramatically streamline the testing of hybrid fiber applications.” Both singlemode and multimode fiber optic fast connector are available now.
