EXFO Launches Automated Fiber Inspector
QUEBEC CITY -- EXFO Inc. (NASDAQ: EXFO, TSX: EXF) today announced the release of the FIP-400B, a next-generation inspection probe providing crisp, digital images of optical connectors at three levels of magnification. Featuring an ergonomic patent-pending design based on years of end-user feedback, this probe is optimized for easy handling by both left- and right-handed users.
Built to simplify and speed up the inspection process, the FIP-400B integrates advanced automated features, such as a high-performance, fiber image-centering system that eliminates the labor intensive step of localizing the fiber in the image. The FIP-400B also includes ConnectorMax2, an onboard connector-endface pass/fail analysis application based on IEC or custom standards to deliver accurate and repeatable connector certification in seconds. It is also equipped with a LED indicator located on the probe to provide users with an immediate health pass/fail verdict for the connector under test.
Because fiber inspection tools are now an essential part of every fiber technician's toolbox, EXFO is also releasing the MAX-FIP Intelligent Connector and Fiber Certifier. The MAX-FIP is a rugged and compact, tablet-inspired stand-alone display kit integrating the FIP-400B Fiber Inspection Probe and ConnectorMax2 analysis software, an optical power meter for power and loss testing, and a visual fault locator (VFL) to effectively test and troubleshoot any type of optical network. The MAX-FIP's bright, 7 inch touchscreen offers the best magnification level available from a portable probe display, and its eight-hour rechargeable Li-ion battery provides enough power to tackle a full day of inspection (e.g., FTTH cabinet installation). In addition, the MAX-FIP offers extensive data storage, enough for thousands of high-resolution inspection results.
