Fluke Networks MicroScanner Industrial Ethernet Cable Verifier

Key features

  • Graphical wire map, length, cable ID, and distance to fault
  • Test RJ11, RJ45, Coax, and Industrial Ethernet connector types
  • Locate cables with IntelliTone™ digital and analog toning
  • Verify 10/100/1000 Ethernet and detect PoE
  • Work in any environment with backlit LCD screen

Product overview: Fluke Networks MicroScanner™ 2 Industrial Ethernet Cable Verifier

The Fluke Networks MicroScanner™2 Industrial Ethernet Cable Verifier performs continuity tests on RJ45, M12X, M12D, and M8D terminated cables in seconds and displays results graphically so you can see opens, shorts, and crossed wires.

It also reports which end of the cable has a problem and reports the distance to an open connection within the cable. Cable failures result in costly production downtime so it’s important to quickly identify where the cable is broken so it can be replaced or repaired.

Includes Duffle Bag, Multi-Connector Adapter, Cat6A patch cord, RJ45 male to RJ45 female patch cord , RJ45/M12X patch cord, RJ45/M12D patch cord, RJ45/M8D patch cord for testing of M12X, M12D, M8D terminated cables.

Test modes
Cable test Measures length, verifies wiremap, identifies remote ID locators, and detects Ethernet ports. Displays results on one screen.
Tone Generates IntelliTone™ and normal analog toning signals
PoE MicroScanner2: Solicits and detects the presence of 802.3af compatible PoE (Power over Ethernet) devices
Performance specifications
Cable types tested Twisted pair: UTP, FTP, SSTP
Coaxial (MicroScanner2): 75 Ω, 50 Ω, 93 Ω
Length test Range: 460 m (1500 ft)
Resolution: 0.3 m (1 ft)
Typical accuracy: ± 4% or 0.6 m (2 ft) whichever is greater. NVP uncertainty is an additional error.
Calibration: User-settable NVP for twisted pair and coax (MicroScanner2). Can determine actual NVP with known length of cable.
Wiremap test Detects single-wire faults, shorts, miswires, split pairs, and up to seven far-end adapter IDs. The wiremap is drawn with proportional length to visually indicate the approximate location of faults.
Ethernet port detection MicroScanner2: Detects the advertised speed of 802.3 Ethernet ports with speeds of 10 Mbps, 100 Mbps, and 1 Gbps.
Tone generator Supports toning and cable mapping with a Fluke Networks digital IntelliTone™ probe. Generates four tones compatible with typical analog probes. SmartTone™ feature gives positive identification of cables in bundles when using an IntelliTone or an analog probe.
