In this video I'll show you how to properly inspect optic fiber cables with a fiber scope, and how to properly clean the fibers with the correct tools. Patreon link: https://www.patreon.com/nfm
The Provision 100 Fiber Optic Inspection Scope is a flexible fiber optic cable with a built-in flashlight. It is a great tool for looking into places that are hard to get to. This is a great tool if you need a boreoscope to inspect and repair your car.

Buy this fiber connector inspection microscope from the link here: https://www.fiberoptics4sale.com/collections/subcategory_fiber-optic-inspection-microscopes/products/f1-ms200x We are introducing one mini hand held optical fiber connector inspection microscope. This microscope has two adapters. 1. 1.25mm diameter ferrule adapter for LC and MU connectors 2. 2.5mm diameter ferrule adapter for SC, ST, and FC connectors This microscope provides 200x magnification. It has a replaceable adapter at the front, one eye view piece at the back, one wheel for fine tuning the focus, and one LED on/off button which is also used to switch between coaxial illumination mode and oblique illumination mode. When we turn it on, we can see the bright light illuminating the fiber connector end face. This model is a mini model and weighs only 0.5 pound. We can insert the LC connector into the adapter, turn on the light, and inspect the quality by viewing through the eye view piece. In this process, you need to fine turn the focus wheel to bring the connector end face into clear focus, you can master this focusing process by doing more practices. Now let's try to switch between the direct spot-on coaxial illumination mode and the oblique illumination mode. The direct spot-on coaxial illumination mode provides a very bright view, however, it could hide some debris and other defects on the surface. Now let's turn off the LED. Then turn it on and keep holding it for more than 3 seconds, now the LED is in the oblique illumination mode. It provides a low brightness view, but it can show more detailed defects on the connector end face. We have this model in stock at Fiber Optics For Sale Co.

In this FOA Hints video we show how to use a microscope to inspect connectors for dirt and damage are and even how well they are made. We also show how to determine fiber types.
Fiber optic connector end-face contamination is a leading cause of fiber failures. Dirt and contaminant cause insertion loss and back-reflection that inhibits optical transmission and causes havoc with transceivers. For more information visit: http://www.flukenetworks.com/installation-and-test/fiber-inspection-and-cleaning/fi-500-fiberInspector-micro With today’s data centers, you get high patch panel density and low light levels. When the two come together, it can make it hard to find the port or cable you need to inspect. That’s why we developed the FI-500 FiberInspector with PortBright illumination. It lets you clearly see what you’re testing, saving time and your eyesight. The FI-500 is a breeze to use. The probe has key controls mounted on it for easy operation and is designed to fit into tight spaces. Simply plug it into the patch panel or plug the cable into the FI-500 and press autofocus. Within seconds, the autofocus features brings the UPC fiber end faces into sharp, clear view. You can autofocus anytime by pressing a button on the probe or the display. And if you're working in a difficult to reach place or you can't get the image to stand still, just touch the pause button to freeze the image. The zoom function increases the magnification to make it easy to spot contamination. You can clearly see contamination on this fiber end face. The FI-500 comes with 4 interchangeable UPC tips. APC tips are available as well. This allows the FI-500 to work with nearly any port or cable and it operates off of rechargeable AA batteries. Contamination can be easily removed with our line of cleaning supplies with the FI-500, you’ll get high-end features at an affordable price.
Explains what to do with the FS400 fiber optic field microscope if it has lost the ability to focus on fiber endfaces.
See inside the smallest spaces with the Milliscope two. The Milliscope two is a flexible or rigid fiber optic borescope system that can be customized to your inspection needs. These incredible scopes can be as thin as 0.35 millimeters, or the width of 3 human hairs! Now there is nowhere you can’t see. With the Milliscope II, the highest resolution fiber optic images give you the best inspection possible. A versatile system that allows you to easily interchange probes for your different applications. Flexible probe length allows you to snake around tight passages and corners. Send us your part and we will customize the ideal solution for you. Getting started with the Milliscope II is easy. Just plug the CCD camera into a PC, attach the appropriate backend optics then snap in your interchangeable probe On the PC, the Image can be adjusted and zoomed for optimal inspection results. Available in lengths from 30 millimeters to 10 meters. Probe diameters can be as thin as point three five millimeters and as large as 4 millimeters. Features of the Milliescope II include: Video Recording, Still Image Capture, Waterproof working lengths, and Customizable depths of field, field of view and direction of view. The package comes complete with The Milliscope II fiberscope, a powerful white light LED light source, Backend Optics, High resolution CCD Camera, and PC viewing software.

The Super Thin Mico Flexible Fiberscopes provide a faceted image with a narrow diameter view of the inspection area. The resolution and image quality provide a great image which can be used in a wide range of applications (aviation, machinery, automotive, engine inspection, piping, locksmith, and many others) These Micro Fiberscopes do feature a flexible insertion tube, but they can only be bent gently, where the bend radius of insertion tube is exceeds 3.5" or more.

I got a chance to try out this EXFO FIP-435B Fiber Inspection Probe that will Wirelessly send the image to a smart phone,, Iphone or Android. I was very surprised how much dirt and smuse there will come on the end of fiber optical cables from even the smallest touch,, frightening. **** UPDATE **** EXFO's video response. EXFO's Christian Isabelle, Senior Technical Support Specialist, provide a few tips on how to make fiber cleaning more efficient and faster. : http://youtu.be/S2kj1XpOnAw Link UK - EXFO FIP-435B Fiber Inspection: http://amzn.to/2FJEGbx Link UK - One Click Fiber Optic Cleaner : http://amzn.to/2EEfRhH Link US - One Click Fiber Optic Cleaner : http://amzn.to/2DZS6mZ Link US - Alcohol Pads : http://amzn.to/2GILSFY ________________________________________________________________ http://www.patreon.com/myplayhouse Even just 1$ a month, comes out to the same as Binge-watching all of my 500+ Videos every month.
