Fluke Networks launches the first live fibre detector – FiberLert™

06 May 2022

Fluke, the global technology leader in the manufacture of compact, professional electronic test and measurement tools and software, has designed the world’s first live fibre detector called FiberLert™.

The one-handed tool allows anyone to perform basic tests on fibre and quickly identifies polarity issues and failed transceivers. The presence of near infra-red light is indicated by means of an audible sound and LED.

The FiberLert can detect invisible near-infrared (850-1625nm) wavelengths used in fibre-optic communication to troubleshoot cable, port, polarity and transceiver issues.
Designed for one-handed operation, the FiberLert is an easy-to-use troubleshooting tool that allows technicians and engineers to simply test for the presence of near infra-red light without the need for complicated setup or interpretation of the measurement data.

Carbon reduction commitments are important for every business, no matter what industry or region. By 2023 all publicly listed companies and financial institutions will have to detail how they intend to meet the UK’s 2050 net-zero carbon target. Right now, around half of smaller UK businesses fall within being ‘Carbon Complacent’ or ‘Carbon Exposed’.

Previously, it’s been too easy to pay lip service to the issue. Too often, businesses have put the cart before the horse – proclaiming environmental benefits or boasting better sustainability than their competitors before they have the underlying data. Regulators are becoming bolder in cracking down on such behaviours, which can amount to greenwashing, with moves such as the UK’s Green Claims Code launched in September 2021.
