Kingfisher International Precision Handheld Fiber Optic Test Equipment

Since its beginning in 1986, Kingfisher International has been recognized as a leader in the fiber optic test instrument and measurement industry. Currently Kingfisher International test instruments are being utilized by major Telco's in 70 countries throughout Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East and North America. In January 2006, Kingfisher International firmly entered the US fiber optic test and measurement market by the signing of a vendor contract with Embarq Logistics (formerly Sprint North Supply).
Kingfisher International makes a fiber optic tester for every network fiber testing application. The entire test instrument line incorporates 20 years of field tested innovation to produce the most advanced fiber optic testing equipment available. This fiber optic test equipment tests single mode fiber optics systems in the telecom and cable industries, and multimode fiber used in LAN, automotive and industrial data network installation. All Kingfisher International hand-held fiber optic testers offer practical specifications for fiber optic testing and are backed by a standard 3 year warranty with an optional 5-7 year extended warranty. Each Kingfisher fiber optic tester is carefully tested and calibrated before shipment. All test instruments have 3 year calibration cycles with an ILAC MRA-1982, NATA-NIST traceable calibration, ISO9001, ISO 17025, and an industry wide record of superior reliability.

Key differentiators of Kingfisher International Fiber Optic Test equipment:

  • 1% guaranteed accuracy, across all operational specs and conditions, traceable to NATA-NIST.
  • Therefore: reliable, consistent measurements, no second guessing, no questionable results.
  • No warm-up or stabilization time when changing to-from any wavelengths.
  • Therefore: extremely fast testing, 4 wavelengths, both directions, end-to-end test in under 10 seconds!
  • Easy to use/easy to learn. One button testing for a complete fiber test.
  • Rugged design based on 20 years of field experience. Will withstand a 1 meter drop to hard surface.
  • Extremely low cost of ownership: 3 year calibration cycle, 3 year warranty, less than .1% failure rate per year.
  • Long battery life, from 190 hours to well over 300 hours of continuous use.
