IDEAL 33-987 Signaltek-FO Cabling system & Link Qualifier, Copper only (Fiber Ready - without SFP Modules)

Note: Replaced with R156001

SIGNALTEK-FO offers all of the existing capabilities of the standard SIGNALTEK Qualifier such as Gigabit Ethernet Qualification, test storage and reporting, and active link testing and adds the powerful capability of fiber optic Qualification.

Traditional power meter/light source kits only measure the attenuation of fiber optic links. As Gigabit Ethernet is becoming the standard for backbone and zone fiber optic cabling, attenuation tests alone may not be enough to guarantee error-free performance.

Kit Contents:

  • 1 SIGNALTEK fiber ready near-end and 1 remote-end handset
  • Carrying case
  • Copper cable accessory kit with interfaces to RJ45, RJ11,
  • Coax F-Type cables, and alligator clips
  • Fiber optic cable accessory kit: 2 duplex LC-SC 50/125 µm (2m/7 ft.)cables, 2 duplex LC-SC 62.5/125 µm (2m/7 ft.)cables, 1 duplex SC-SC adapter.
  • 8 AA alkaline batteries
  • 2 AC power adapters with international plugs
  • USB interface cable
  • 1 CD-ROM User Manual
  • 1 Training DVD

SIGNALTEK-FO's Bit Error Rate testing, adds assurance that fiber optic links can actually support high-speed data in accordance with IEEE 802.3ab standards.

In addition to cable performance qualification, SIGNALTEK can be configured to run for several minutes or hours at a time. While stress testing critical network links, SIGNALTEK transmits hundreds of Gigabits of information across the network while looking for dropped packets.

This monitoring mode allows SIGNALTEK to be used to isolate intermittent network problems that are difficult to detect. Adopting the latest generation of Gigabit Ethernet technology, IDEALs innovation brings the best performance to this new class of affordable testers.


  • Fiber Optic & Copper Gigabit Qualification - Qualify copper andfiber-optic cabling to IEEE 802.3 standards
