Most fiber cable assemblies fail due to lack of proper end-face proper cleaning. When cleaning is not the issue, the perfect diagnostic tool for all user levels is the Camplex SMPTE Cable Tester to accurately test & evaluate SMPTE cables in the studio and field. The Camplex SMPTE Tester is the most cost effective means for fast SMPTE electrical and optical continuity testing. It includes a comprehensive electrical test circuit to evaluate shield continuity and shorts - a commonly overlooked but important test. Electrical testing scans the power, control and main shield for opens and short circuits.
Optical continuity is verified using a built-in Visual Fault Locator to quickly find broken fibers. Each fiber can be verified individually for optical continuity. The unit will also measure optical power loss with any available fiber light source, power meter or OTDR.
