Adapter tips are used with the DFS1 Digital FiberScope to inspect ferrule ends of jumper cables, as well as fiber ends mounted inside bulkhead adapters on the front panels of transmission equipment and in patch panels. Tips are available in a variety of lengths for both UPC and APC connectors. Commonly used FC, SC, and LC adapter tips are included in DFS1 Digital FiberScope Kits.
Tool-free connector adapters allow connection of common fiber optic connectors and remove to support cleaning of launch ferule. Products with tool-free adapters include, FTS2, OLS2-Dual, OLS4, OLS7, SVA1
Fiber Rings from AFL are often a necessity when testing with an OTDR. Both a launch and receive cable are required to measure complete link loss of a fiber with an OTDR. Because very long test cables are impractical to transport and use, AFL offers coiled lengths of 50 µm multimode, 62.5 µm multimode, or single-mode fiber conveniently packaged in compact rings.
The Bench Top model Network Simulators from AFL are custom-designed fiber boxes. Bench Top models can hold up to 15 Km of fiber and can be ordered with customer-specified events and fiber lengths. Network Simulators are intended to duplicate installed fiber networks. Training schools, laboratory testing or field troubleshooting are just few of the many applications for these portable units.
To meet the new multimode light source requirements in TIA/EIA-568-B, AFL offers mandrels for 50 and 62.5 µm test jumpers with 3 mm jackets. Both mandrels have grooves to ensure that jumpers are wrapped exactly five times (as specified by TIA/EIA-568-B) and can be easily attached to test jumpers in seconds without tools or tape.
VS300 and OFS300 Fiberscopes have a threaded mount accepting AFL standard adapters for inspection of many industry standard connectors.
AFL's standard thread-on adapter caps are used to mate non-angled and angled single-fiber and dual-fiber connectors to optical power meter ports on our OPM Series, T400, T500, and ORL3 series test sets.
Test ports on FlexScan® and FlexTester series handheld OTDRs are equipped with tool-free switchable adapters which can be changed in seconds. The fast change switchable adapters allow OTDRs to interface launch cables with a variety of connector styles.
