New Fluke FT300 Fiber Microscope
Fluke FT300 Fiber Microscope
This convenient, easy-to-use instrument brings fiber inspection into the 21st century by providing a comprehensive view of even hard-to-reach connectors. Inspecting fiber optic terminations in patch panels, hardware devices, test equipment and cable assemblies can be a real challenge without the right tool. Maybe you can inspect connectors at the end of a fiber link with a traditional fiber inspection microscope. But how do you get to installed connectors and access critical fiber connectors on a hardware device?
The Fluke Networks FT300 FiberInspector¿ puts the quick and safe solution for fiber testing every termination in today's high-bandwidth systems right before your eyes. Simply insert the probe and inspect installed fiber connectors through the bulkhead adapters without accessing the backside of the patch panels. This portable video microscope works 10 times faster than traditional scopes. Viewing instant, sharp images saves valuable time inspecting installed fiber in patch panels while reducing contamination and signal loss in hardware devices. This Network SuperVision Solution¿ also lets you inspect live fiber safely without harming your eyes.
Dirt, dust and other contaminants are the enemy of high-speed data transmission over optical fiber. With today's network applications requiring more bandwidth and loss budgets being tighter than ever before, keeping all optical connections clean and free of contaminants is critical to ensure network operation. So even hard-to-reach fiber connections must be inspected. The rugged FiberInspector gives you superior vision by enabling you to inspect all types of installed fiber terminations in hardware devices and patch panels. Instead of removing each individual fiber, you can insert the video probe and inspect the fiber while it's still in place. This is the only practical way to determine if connectors on most hardware devices are clean and in good condition when disassembly is not a realistic option.
FiberInspector features a high-contrast handheld display unit and a small, lightweight probe that contains a long-life LED light source and CCD video camera. The probe holds itself in place for hands-free operation. Just mate the adapter tip with the connector. Then view crisp, clear images of microscopic debris and end-face damage through high-magnification optics projected on the LCD. The video display allows you to look at a fiber end-face without looking into the fiber, eliminating all chance of harmful laser light reaching your eye.
