FI-3000 FiberInspector Pro MPO Inspection Camera
The FI-3000 FiberInspector™ Pro is the industry’s most efficient MPO inspection solution. Start with an instant view of the entire fibre endface using the Live View feature. Then use the simple
gesture-based interface to zoom in on each fibre or perform an automated PASS/FAIL analysis in seconds. Its ergonomic design makes it comfortable even when inspecting hundreds of bulkheads and cables. Choose from two user interface and reporting methods.
First, the iOS/Android app allows you to inspect your MPO installation using your phone and easily share their inspection results via text or even social media. Second, pair the FiberInspector with Versiv Cabling Certification System using its user interface and industry leading LinkWare™ reporting system. With Versiv and LinkWare you can test copper, fibre loss, OTDR and inspection and combine the results into one complete report*.

Eliminate the No1 cause of fibre failure
Endface contamination the leading cause of fibre failures. Dirt and debris cause insertion loss and back-reflection that inhibit optical transmission and cause havoc with transceivers. Fibre loss and OTDR testing can expose this problem, but in many cases, dirty connections make testing fibre time consuming and inaccurate.
Since dirt can be an issue before, during, or after fibre optic certification testing, and migrate from one end-face to another upon mating, both sides of any connection must always be cleaned and inspected.
Further, mating contaminated connectors can cause permanent damage as microscopic debris is crushed between end-faces in physical contact. Even factory terminated patch cords or pigtails must be inspected as protective caps do not keep end-faces clean. Avoiding this common cause of failure, starts with inspecting the end-face and eliminating any contamination before insertion into a bulkhead or piece of equipment. Inspection is critical for MPO based fibre installations as dirt and other debris can be easily moved from one fibre end face to another.
Grab the most efficient MPO inspection solution
The FI-3000 FiberInspector Pro offers an extensive feature set that makes testing MPO trunks easy and efficient. The multiple camera design with autofocus provides a Live View of the entire endface on your smart phone or Versiv instantly – then use simple touchscreen gestures to look at individual endfaces in real time. Touch “Test”, and in seconds, you’ll get an automated PASS/FAIL result compliant with IEC 61300-3-35. Store results on your phone and share them through text messages or email or use the industry-leading LinkWare platform to store complete project reports including copper, fibre loss, OTDR and endface images*. Compact, ergonomic design with autofocus makes it comfortable and fast even when you’re testing hundreds of cable or ports.
Total endface visibility with Live View from full trunk to individual endface
Integrates with Versiv / LinkWare for simple operation and documentation or with mobile phones for testing and sharing*
Automated PASS/FAIL results in less than two seconds per fiber
Multiple Autofocus/Autocentering Camera design for real time imaging
Rugged, ergonomic design
Supports one or two rows of 8,12, or 16 UPC or APC connectors as well as single fibres*
Live view with AutoFocus and AutoCentering for Instant real time visibility
Plug the connector into the FI-3000, touch the autofocus button, and the Live View feature delivers a live view of the fibre endface immediately – with no setup or processing time. Dual cameras provide a single, integrated view of the entire endface. Use simple gestures to zoom into the portion of interest, pan across the connector or just tap the image of a specific fibre for a detailed view.
Automated Pass/Fail testing of MPO trunks and end faces in seconds
Manual inspection of MPO connections can be slow and subject to human error. Manually tracking across multiple fibre endfaces in the connector makes it easy to miss one or more. The FiberInspector’s autotest mode examines all fibre endfaces in the connector, grades them as per industry standard IEC 61300-3-35 and provides an overall PASS or FAIL result in less than two seconds per fibre. The gesture-based user interface makes it easy to switch from the summary to a detailed view.
Seamlessly switch from a summary view (left) to an image (centre), then use the gesture-based interface to zoom into a view of each individual fibre (right) and pan across the entire connector. Individual fibres are labelled so you know what you’re looking at. Red defects are failures, green are acceptable per the selected standard.
Interchangable tips support one or two rows of 8, 12 or 16 UC or APC connectors as well as fibres.*

Test Results with Graphical Indication of Problem Areas
When an endface fails, the FI-3000 shows which fibres failed, and highlights the areas caused the failure: contamination, pits, chips and scratches. By understanding the cause of the failure, the user can determine the type of cleaning needed or if the connector is damaged beyond repair.
Lightweight, Ergonomic design with holster
The FI-3000’s unique design makes it easy to inspect both bulkheads and trunk cables. The compact and lightweight (326 g / 11.5 oz) design means you can use it all day without fatigue. The built-in PortBright™ illumination makes it easy to find the right port in dense patch panels in dim data centers or dark wiring closets. All FI-3000 models include a holster which provides convenient access to the camera as well as storage for inspection tips and a QuickClean™ cleaner.
iOS and Android Apps for simple data sharing
The FI-3000 can be connected over Wi-Fi to iOS or Android devices for small jobs or a quick inspection. The FiberInspector app (FI-IN) shows simple PASS/FAIL results, but also gives you complete control over the FI-3000, so you can zoom in or out of each endface and pan across a Live View of the entire endface. FI-IN supports naming and storing of results in the device – or send them as an image or PDF report to others on the team for quick, simple collaboration.
Generate detailed PDF reports from your phone or Versiv tester. Versiv and LinkWare also support integrated reports including Tier 1 (Loss) and Tier 2 (OTDR) tests. (Integrated tests using Versiv and LinkWare available second half 2019.)
Integrates with Versiv and LinkWare™ for Project Management and Reporting*
For those installing multiple MPO trunks as part of a new installation or upgrade, the FI-3000 integrates with the Versiv Cabling Certification System for fast, error free project management and reporting. Versiv’s ProjX Management System lets you define each job including the types of cables, identifiers, required tests, and limits. Techs can use the same platform for loss (Tier 1), OTDR (Tier 2) and inspection, reducing training costs and the likelihood of errors. The FI-3000 connects to Versiv via a USB cable.
Versiv features a large, high resolution display that lets you see the results clearly. The gesture based Taptive™ screen makes it easy to pan across or zoom in and out of the Live View image.
The FI-3000 also works with Fluke Networks LinkWare – the defacto industry standard for documenting cabling systems. LinkWare lets you combine Tier 1, Tier 2 and inspection results into a single report for full documentation of every link in the system. The cloud-based version, LinkWare Live, makes it easy to track progress of the job from your smartphone or PC and share results with customers.
Tips for Every Need
The FI-3000 comes standard with tips for inspecting 12/24 UPC and 12/24 APC endfaces. An accessory tip is available for 16/32 UPC configurations. The FI-3000 addresses your single-fibre inspection needs with the same autofocus, autocentering, autograding and Live View features as MPO*. Optional tips will be available to support LC, SC, 1.25 mm, 2.5 mm and E2000.
