Fiber Loopbacks, Attenuators, Pigtails
To help installers and techs test and troubleshoot fiber equipment and connections, Black Box has introduced a new line of fiber loopbacks, attenuators, and pigtails.

Use the loopbacks to verify equipment operation by "looping" the signal back.

Buffer overpowering fiber signals and eliminate errors with the attenuators.

Use the new 6- and 12-fiber pigtails in termination enclosures or with fiber test equipment.

Get Automated Alerts and Remote Control with an Outlet-Managed PDU
Do you ever sit at home worrying if your network is up? An outlet-managed PDU can keep an eye on your network equipment for you. You'll know if something is wrong so you can correct the situation before it turns into a crisis. The PDU will automatically notify you when changes in current levels, temperature, circuit breaker status, and other factors exceed threshold values. This gives you the chance to reboot your rackmounted equipment when devices aren't responding; disable outlets to reduce current consumption; or even switch on cooling devices to lower the rack/cabinet temperature.
