Great test and inspection equipment performs even better when outfitted with the correct accessories for the job. AFL offers a full range of accessories to help you get the most from your test and inspection investment. Whether testing with an OTDR or performing loss testing with a light source and power meter, AFL offers a wide variety of connector adapters, tips, fiber optic cleaners, and fiber rings as well as inspection scopes and software to meet your testing needs.

Products


VS300 and OFS300 Fiberscopes have a threaded mount accepting AFL standard adapters for inspection of many industry standard connectors.
The FTTx PON Simulator from AFL is designed to simulate a wide variety of FTTx PON architectures. It is field-configurable to implement both single splitter and distributed splitter PONs and may be used for lab or table-top FTTx PON demonstration, evaluation, and testing applications.
The NEOCLEAN Reel has a simplified design that minimizes the number of assembly parts to reduce manufacturing cost and product price. The cleaner uses a special, cleaning cloth to that effectively removes dusts and dirt particulates from the connector end-face.
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.
VFS2 Adapter Tips allow VFS2 Inspection Probes to view connectors in adapters and exposed ferules (jumper ends).
A rugged, portable and easy-to-use automatic measurement system, the WDM900 Lightwave Test Set simplifies in-service testing of DWDM and CWDM access networks that support cellular/mobile backhaul services, metro Ethernet services and CATV/broadband services.
AFL FlexTester PRO2 Kits combine either a FLX380 or OFL280 FlexTester with a FOCIS Flex Fiber Optic Connector Inspection System and connector cleaning supplies. Designed for optical network installers, FlexTester PRO2 Kits are packaged in a rugged, waterproof, lightweight hard carry case.
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.
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.
The DFS1 Digital FiberScope inspects fiber optic connector end-faces for damage or contamination. The DFS1 delivers video images via USB for display on AFL’s M-series OTDRs or C-series Testers. SimpleView™ software allows users to view end-faces using the DFS1 connected to their laptop's or PC's USB port. The DFS1 is powered via USB, eliminating the need for batteries or an AC adapter. Adapter tips are available for a wide range of optical connector ferrules and bulkhead adapters.
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.
ROGUE® OTDR modules are part of the ROGUE modular test platform and may be used with either the ROGUE Carrier or iB1 Base platform. Quad (850/1300 nm multimode + 1310/1550 nm single-mode) and Dual Single-mode (1310/1550 nm) modules are available. ROGUE OTDR modules are supported by aeRos Workflow Management software and an Android LinkMap® OTDR App.
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
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.
NEOCLEAN cleaners use a simple one push operation to quickly and effectively clean contamination from the ferrule end-face of connectors on jumpers or in adapters, reducing cleaning time. Effective for removing oil, dust, and dirt particulates that can have a negative impact on fiber optic network performance.
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.
AFL offers pre-paid calibration plans for Test & Inspection products. Pre-paid plans allow customers to factor two annual calibrations into initial purchase order ensuring they will have a calibrated tool for three years without the hassle of seeking internal purchase approval for necessary future calibrations. Annual calibrations performed at AFL calibration facilities ensure that you are getting the most out of your test equipment and that your equipment is operating at AFL specifications.
