Fluke Networks MicroScanner PoE Industrial Ethernet Cable Verifier

Key features

  • Perform Cable Testing on Industrial Ethernet Networks (including Ethernet/IP, Profinet, EtherCat based systems)
  • Display cable length, wiremap and distance to fault
  • Display network switch speeds up to 10G and PoE
  • Locate and trace cable with toning (probe sold separately)
  • Report PoE class (0-8)

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

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

The MS-POE also quickly determines if a problem is caused by insufficient power or the powered device. Cable and power 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.

MicroScanner™ PoE: 10.6 oz (300 g)
Display Monochrome LCD with backlight
Test modes
Cable test Measures length, verifies wiremap, identifies remote ID locators, and detects Ethernet ports. MicroScanner™ PoE also shows HIGH Ω when the resistance of the cable is more than 12.5 Ω. Displays results on one screen.
Tone Generates IntelliTone™ and normal analog toning signals
PoE MicroScanner™ PoE: Solicits and detects the presence of 802.3af, at, bt, and UPOE (Cisco’s Universal Power over Ethernet) compatible PoE devices
Performance specifications
Cable types tested Twisted pair: UTP, FTP, SSTP
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. 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 MicroScanner™ PoE: Detects the advertised speed of 802.3 Ethernet ports with speeds of 10 Mbps, 100 Mbps, 1 Gbps, 2.5 Gbps, 5 Gbps, and 10 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.
