Multi-Fiber Switch


The Multi-Fiber Switch is designed to test 12 fiber MPO connected cables without the need to use a breakout cable, saving time and money. The switch allows you to utilize a single piece of test equipment to seamlessly cycle through all of the fibers in a connector regardless of polarity without having to disconnect and reconnect your test equipment making the testing of your network more efficient, saving you both time and money.

  • Converts a single port tester into a multi-fiber MPO tester
  • SC port for connection to test equipment
  • 12F MPO port for connection to MPO cable under test
  • LCD screen to indicate fiber under test
  • Singlemode, or multimode models
  • Can be used with an OPM/OLS, OLTS, OTDR, and VFL
  • Automatically controlled by FlexScan® OTDR, and ROGUE OLTS-CERT®
  • Efficient testing from 1-12 fiber MPO links
