- Features & Specification
FiberTEK III adapters are used with LanTEK III for fast and simple certification of high bandwidth single-mode and multimode fibre optic cabling including support for encircled flux testing (optional).
To pinpoint fibre cabling faults every FiberTEK III adapter includes a built-in visible light source to help you visually pinpoint faults and locate fibre ports.
FiberTEK III provides optical loss (dB) measurements meeting Tier 1 certification requirements.
Available in multi-mode (850/1300nm) and single mode (1310/1550nm) varieties.

Includes two multimode FiberTEK III modules, lockable semi-rigid carrying case, SC, FC, ST adapters for modules (2 ea.), SC-SC patch cords, 6x 50μm MMF) compliant to ISO/IEC 14763-3 standard, quick reference guide.
The main applications for FiberTEK III is the testing of fibre optic MM and SM cabling in LAN and campus applications. Its key feature is to measure attenuation and length of a fibre optic link. (also known as “Tier 1 Certification”). The test can be carried out during installation as well as during fault finding:
- Certifying cable performance to ISO 11801 and TIA 568-C standards
- Meet cabling specifications as required by engineers, designers and clients
- Provide proof of good workmanship when the client does not require certification tests
- Avoid call-backs by identifying faults while onsite
- Convert warranty call-backs into chargeable service calls
- Dispute resolution between network equipment/configuration versus cable installation
- building backbone cabling (“secondary cabling”)
- inter building cabling and campus cabling (primary cabling)
- FTTD (Fibre To The Desk) cabling (“tertiary cabling”)
- Cabling for building automation
- Cabling for industrial automation
- SAT cabling
Q: What is the difference between single-mode and multimode fibre?
A: Multimode fibre has a larger light carrying core of 50 or 62.5 microns compared to 9 microns for single-mode fibre. The larger core of multimode fibre captures more light than single-mode fibre allowing the use of low power LED light sources. The maximum bandwidth of multimode fibre is inversely proportional to length, i.e., doubling the length of a multimode cable reduces it’s bandwidth capacity by half. Multimode fibre is typically limited to lengths of 2,000 meters (6,560 ft).
Single-mode fibre requires the use of higher power and more costly laser light sources but does not sacrifice bandwidth for distance. Single-mode fiber can be used at lengths of up to 40,000 meters (131,200 ft) while supporting 10 Gb/s data rates.
Q: Which LanTEK III models support fibre testing ?
A: Both LanTEK III-500 and LanTEK III-1000 support FiberTEK III
Q: Will LanTEK II support FiberTEK III
Q: Will LanTEK III support FiberTEK II ?
Q: Can I measure MPO connectors with FiberTEK III
A: Not directly. Due to the still not very high repeatability when disconnecting and connecting MPO connectors, IDEAL still recommends to use so called fan-out cables from MPO to SC or LC
Q: Can I measure LC links with FiberTEK III
A: Yes, there are optional adapters available
