Datasheet: MicroScanner² Update
For more than a decade, cabling
installation and maintenance
technicians have relied on
MicroScanner to verify terminations
and troubleshoot continuity faults. A
lot has changed in the cabling world
since the original MicroScanner was
introduced. Industry economics
require that installations be done
fast and accurately with no
callbacks. And converging voice,
data, and video technologies have
given rise to new requirements for
service testing and multimedia
MicroScanner2 Cable Verifier
Raising cable verification to a higher power
MicroScanner2 recognizes these
trends the way testing is done. It
streamlines every aspect of the
verification job. From its time-saving
user interface and integrated
multimedia support to its expanded
service detection capabilities,
MicroScanner2 gives technicians the
power to perform their jobs faster
and more accurately than ever.
Reduce test time and user error
High power vision to verify
voice/data/video cabling and
services. That’s Fluke Networks’
promise to you.
Eliminate awkward test adapters
Yesterday’s cable verification testers force users to toggle between different modes
(up to four) to view all test results. This not only slows the test process, but also
causes user frustration and error. MicroScanner2 has defied this convention by
displaying key test results – wiremap, pair lengths, distance to fault, cable ID, and
far-end devices – all on one screen.
Tired of losing or breaking all the adapters needed for testing the various voice, data,
and video media types? MicroScanner2 makes these adapters things of the past with
builtin RJ11, RJ45, and coax support. Both the main unit and the far-end identifiers
can be used to test telephone jacks, Ethernet jacks, and CATV outlets right out of the
Rule out service problems fast
Today’s communications technicians have more problems to deal with than just the
cabling. They have to rule out a whole host of cable and service issues before
determining the cause of a connectivity problem. Is there telephone voltage? What’s
the polarity? Is there a switch at the far end? Is PoE available? MicroScanner2 gives
technicians high power vision to verify today’s most common voice, data, and video

Locate elusive cables in seconds
MicroScanner2 features built-in IntelliTone digital and analog toning to precisely locate virtually any cable or wire pair, regardless of
work environment. Use digital mode to locate high-grade data cabling (Cat 5e/6/6a) in bundles, or at switches, patch panels, or wall
outlets. Or, use analog mode on voice-grade cabling (Cat 3 and below), as well as coax, security/alarm, and speaker wiring.
Repair or replace tools less often
With all the abuse you put your tools through, you can’t afford for them to be delicate. MicroScanner2 features a rubber wrap-around
holster that makes it the right tool for even the toughest jobs. Toss it into your toolbox. Drop it from a ladder. It can handle it. Plus, it
now comes standard with a vinyl carry pouch for enhanced protection and convenience.
