AFL launches optical fiber, connector inspection software

AFL has introduced its SimpleView software for optical fiber and connector inspection.

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.
