AFL has introduced its SimpleView software for optical fiber and connector inspection. Technicians can use the SimpleView software on their field-issued laptops as a fiber inspection system in conjunction with a NOYES DFS1 FiberScope.

"Our new AFL SimpleView application enables installers and activation crews to view high-resolution endface images and quickly determine if cleaning is required," explains Bill Thompson, marketing director at AFL's Test and Inspection Division. "Documenting the as-built or as-found condition of network connections is now practical, quick and easy."

Using the FiberScope and the SimpleView software, technicians can take advantage of 250-µm field of view and 1.0-m optical resolution to detect particles and scratches as small as 0.5 µm, AFL asserts. The software is compatible with Windows XP and Windows 7 operating systems and requires a single USB 1.1 port. It is available as a free download from the company’s website.
