It is essential to inspect fiber optic connections to ensure optimal performance and longevity of fiber optic networks. Fiber connectors need to be inspected to ensure no debris or damage is present every time they are handled. Neglecting to consistently inspect fiber connectors and terminations can lead to signal loss in networks, causing greater expenses and time lost troubleshooting.
Video inspection probes (VIP) allow technicians to view, analyze, and document the fiber they are inspecting in a "live" view. By viewing the fiber in real-time, technicians can check for end face condition and quality. This is helpful for them to determine whether a ferrule end face is clean or if a connector replacement is needed due to scratches. VIP are handheld devices that offer convenience and portability during fiber inspection testing.
Avalon Test Equipment carries a variety of video inspection probes from top manufacturers (VIAVI, ODM, and more) to meet your testing requirements.
