Its unique RF measurement engine exceeds level IV and level V requirements throughout the easurement frequency range.
The AFR1 has been independently verified by highly respected test laboratories such as ETL.
Most leading cable manufacturers have extensively tested the AFR1 and have approved the
instrument for field certification and associated warranties of their structured cabling solutions.
Laboratory testing and comparisons against vector analyzers have proven that the AFR1 has excellent accuracy and measuements correlate with laboratory equipment. In fact, major cable vendors are using the AFR1 in their labs for qualifying CAT8 cabling systems under development.
Testing Cabling Systems CAT6A and Beyond
The AFR1, with its industry leading measurement performance, provides adapters for testing cabling systems with higher performance than CAT6A (500MHz). For Class FA cabling, testing is performed over full standards defined frequency range from 1MHz through 1000MHz. Both TERA and GG45/ARJ45 interfaces are available through the AFR1 test adapters. Both channel and permanent link testing are supported. Adapters are also available for testing CAT7A patch-cords. With measurement bandwidth exceeding 2000MHz, the AFR1 is capable of testing CAT8 cabling once the standard is approved.
Copper patch-cord testing with the AFR1
The AFR1 offers an efficient way for quickly identifying and recording the performance of patch-cords. With its fast and accurate dual-ended testing, the AFR1‘s patch-cord test kits are suitable for both manufacturing testing, as well as for incoming inspection at end user premises.
The AFR1 patch-cord test kits are available for testing CAT5e, CAT6, CAT6A, and CAT7/7A patch-cords.
Industrial Ethernet cabling test
The AFR1‘s industrial Ethernet cabling test solution comprise of M12 adapter kits. Both channel and permanent link configurations with M12 industrial Ethernet connector are supported. Industrial Ethernet kit with X-Coded M12 interface is also available, making it possible to effectively test 10-Gig ready industrial Ethernet cables.
Coax cable test
With coax test adapters, the AFR1 supports testing of coaxial cables for attenuation and return loss over a wide frequency band.
Alien crosstalk testing with the AFR1 is performed using two AFR1 sets. This means, there are no special adapters and no need for carrying a laptop to the field for data analysis. Laboratory Testing of Cables and components AFR1 features extremely versatile adapters that enable the lab technicians to replace expensive Vector Network Analyser with AFR1 for performing differential S-parameter measurements over 1MHz to 2,500MHz.
AFR1 Optical Loss Test Kit
Modern network infrastructure involves installing both copper and fiber cabling within the same premises. With the increasing demand for bandwidth, certification plays a crucial role for guaranteed data rates. Certification requires characterizing each fiber link to the desired standards in measuring the insertion loss (attenuation) and length of the fiber link. The AFR1 provides you with a fast, easy and accurate way of determining the pass/fail criteria of the installation across ISO/IEC or TIA standards.
- Performs autotest in less than 6 seconds
- Perform Tier 1 Certification for ISO/IEC and TIA 568 C.3 Standards
- Measures and certifies length and loss for single-mode at 1310nm and 1550 nm and multi-mode cabling at 850nm and 1300nm
- Seamlessly integrates copper and fiber reports. Generate professional warranty and certification test reports
- Double your productivity with DCSTM technology by using your remote unit as an independent optical certifier.
Test Limits and Link validations
The AFR1 optical loss test kit supports all the latest standards from TIA 568 C.3 to ISO 14763-3 standard. By automatically calculating the loss budgets the AFR1 saves you the trouble of having to perform cumbersome calculations and plugging in data for individual connectors and splices for different standards. In certain scenarios where end-to-end loss is required to be measured and documented, the AFR1 provides with a customized link validation workflow that lets you define end-to-end loss and perform the certification.
Multi-mode and Single-mode kits
The AFR1 optical loss kits are available for both Multi-mode and Single-mode fiber networks. The modular solution allows testing both types of networks on the same AFR1 unit with interchangeable adapters. Each module lets you perform very accurate loss and length measurements at two wavelengths meeting all the various standard requirements. Both kits support certification of horizontal as well as back-bone cabling by supporting dual wavelength measurement on each adapter.
MPO Testing Kit
The AFR1‘s versatile MPO testing solution enables data center IT managers to get quick and accurate assessment of the quality of MPO links. Additionally, it helps in performing incoming inspection of MPO components like cassettes. The key feature of this solution is a 5-second Autotest that includes a detection of fiber connection map and measurement of loss on each channel. The AFR1 cable certification tester enables testing of MPO/MTP links when used with MPO adapters. A typical test setup consists of the AFR1 local unit with MPO power meter adapter, and the remote unit with MPO light source adapter attached. Alternatively, a multimode fiber adapter can be attached to the AFR1 local unit for testing individual fibers in MPO link. This solution provides a fast and accurate measurement of MPO link loss and testing against user configured limit.
Manage your results and generate professional reports and warranty documents. The AFR1 certification solution includes Software, a PC based reporting software that produces full color graphical reports in summary or detail.
