JDSU is introducing new fiber optic test kits featuring products from Westover Scientific, acquired by JDSU on Jan. 7.

The all-in-one fiber optic test kits feature newly acquired Westover Scientific microscopes coupled with JDSU handhelds, including the new range of PocketClass optical power meters and light sources.

JDSU says the combination is the first to give technicians cleaning, inspecting and testing tools in a single kit. Fiber testers highlighted at BICSI, in addition to the PocketClass and Westover products, include the SmartClass and the T-BERD 6000 OTDR.

The company is introducing the kits at the BICSI show. It is also demonstrating its LanScaperPRO, which combines the functions of a high-end cable tester and length measurement device with the capability to identify, monitor and correct LAN issues associated with physical layer and link conditions in the network.

JDSU is also demonstrating the TestifierPRO – which detects wiring problems such as no connection, shorts, high-resistance faults and split-pair conditions by performing detailed analysis for cable test and pre-test. It is also able to determine cable length in feet or meters using a patented cable capacitance method, and it performs tone generation, among other features.
