AFL Expands Fiber Connector Inspection Product Line

LOWELL, MA and SPARTANBURG, SC — AFL, a provider of products and services to the broadband market, has expanded its portfolio of fiber connector inspection products by adding the FOCIS Flex No Wireless (NW) version of its award-winning FOCIS Flex inspection probe. FOCIS Flex is a self-contained, tether-free, compact and handheld connector inspection probe. At the click of a button, FOCIS Flex auto-focuses, captures, centers and analyzes end-face images to easily display, transfer or store pass/fail results within seconds.

“The FOCIS Flex NW addresses the need of network maintenance contractors operating in secure environments, where devices emitting radio frequency (RF) communication signals are prohibited,” commented Maury Wood, product manager for AFL’s Test & Inspection division. “Government and defense establishments often prohibit RF signal transceivers in their facilities in order to enhance security and protect their intellectual property. Increasingly, private enterprise network operators are imposing the same restrictions. The FOCIS Flex NW removes, in both hardware and software, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi communications transceiver functions.”

The FOCIS Flex NW includes internal storage for 10,000 ferrule end-face images and pass/fail results, as well as a USB mass storage device interface for transferring results to a PC. Inspection reports can be generated using AFL’s TRM 2.0 Windows-compatible software as well as AFL’s aeRos cloud-based workflow management platform. The FOCIS Flex NW inspection system is available in kits that include commonly used tips for exposed jumper cable connector ferrules and for connectors in bulkhead adapters.
