Product Introduction

Fiber Optic Connector Inspection

Reliability and performance of a fiber optic link largely depends on the quality of interconnects. Contaminated connectors can cause the mating surfaces to separate leading to high insertion loss and back-reflection. Furthermore, some dirt particles can even scratch or dig into the glass causing permanent damage to the end-face of the connector. Therefore, inspection of fiber optic connectors should be performed whenever a connection is to be made.

Economy Fiber Optic Cassette Cleaner.

This Economy Optic Fiber Cleaner replaces the use of solvent or alcohol and wipes. The cartridge is filled with lint-free, clean room-grade cleaning material. Use it to remove dirt, dust, debris, grease and oil from connector end faces. The resilient rubber pad under the cleaning surface prevents scratches.

Slide the cover back to expose the cleaning cloth. Clean up to six connections before advancing the tape to use a clean portion. Tear off material as required. Clean ferrule sides with excess. Using a forward motion, press connector lightly on exposed cloth twice. Inspect connector end face. Repeat if needed. When not in use, the cleaning substance is protected from contamination by a sliding cover. The lightweight cartridge is filled with 20 feet of cloth tape.

Clean air

Clean Air (Aerosol Dust Removal System) use in delicate instruments and computer equipment. Ideal for cleaning computer keyboards ,optical measurement equipment ,removing microscopic Dust ,printers, timing devices, cash machines, fax machines, photo equipment, VCR’s, Cd’s, And delicate lab equipment.

Features

 

400X Hand held Optical Inspection Scope

The fiber optic microscope utilizes a white light LED for coaxial illumination. Light is introduced into the optical path (axis) so that it comes out the tip of the objective lens and strikes the ferrule perpendicular to the end face. This method of illumination produces a high level of resolution providing excellent detail of scratches and contamination.

Battery source: 3*AAA batteries

Controls: momentary on/off switch for light source and fine force control wheel

Optional Adaptors

 

Fiber clean sticks

To clean the end face of connectors already installed in patch panels and hardware devices, you insert the stick into the bulkhead adapter or receptacle, make the tip contact the connector end face, make a single turn and then pull the stick out and dispose.  You should never reuse a stick.

The Stick Type Connector Cleaner uses dry alcohol-free cloth, its stick-type shape makes it a superb tool for cleaning connector ferrule end face located in difficult spots inside the adaptors. One piece of stick type cleaner can be used for four wipes for equipment construction and one wipe for maintenance purpose. Two models serve almost all types of connectors.

Encircled flux meter

Encircled Flux is now widely accepted as the preferred way to specify modal filling by IEEE, TIA and IEC. Measurement of Encircled Flux is defined in FOTP-203 – the “Modal Explorer” is the most standards-compliant measurement system available today and has been chosen by major standards labs in the USA and Europe as the basis for their critical measurements

 

Its compact size and solid design make it the tool of choice in cable makers, fiber optic instrument companies and VCSEL, laser and LED source makers. In use in factories every day, major players in the industry rely on the Modal Explorer.The Modal Explorer is available for measurements at 850 and 1300nm as well as other custom wavelengths. Modal Explorer makes measurement of Encircled Flux easy and accurate, and it complies with international standards.

 

But if you are measuring laser-based transmission light sources for multi-mode systems you may need to use a test jumper assembly and fiber shaker in order to avoid “speckle”. Industry standards, for example IEEE 802.3aq and FOTP–203, call for the use of a mechanical fiber shaker. The Fiber Shaker (MPX-SR3 option) reduces speckle by changing the differential path length of the modes in the fiber. The fiber is shaken continuously to allow the speckle to be averaged out. This will ensure sufficient repeatability for the measurement of the Encircled Flux
