Fiber Optic Inspection

It is a fact that fiber end-face contamination is a major cause of network outages and downtime. AFL fiber inspection products enable network technicians and other personnel to safely inspect fiber endfaces for contamination and verify the effectiveness of fiber cleaning procedures.

AFL provides cost-effective fiber microscopes with integrated protective infrared filters that minimize the risk of viewing a live fiber. AFL also provides video inspection products with no direct optical path between fiber and the users eye. These products employ a video signal path (like a camcorder viewfinder) and convert the optical image to a safe, high resolution video image.
