Dirt and damage on fiber optic connections account for most problems in fiber networks. Cleaning and inspection are necessary protocols, and many solutions are available. Key differences among inspection solutions are under appreciated by many which could leave problems remaining undetected. This webinar explores these issues to enable attendees to make informed decisions about the solutions they implement for their needs.
Why is magnification a misleading specification for inspection equipment and which specifications matter more? When are automated inspection solutions more reliable than manual solutions? When is interferometry needed in addition to microscopy? Do expanded beam interconnects eliminate the needs for these protocols? These and other questions will be explored.
This webinar is brought to you jointly by OptoTest and Sumix. OptoTest manufactures and services calibrated test equipment used in the manufacture and qualification of fiber optic cables. Sumix manufactures high-precision microscopes and interferometers and actively participates in standards development for optical inspection systems.
