What makes the FIP-500 the most reliable fiber inspection scope in the industry? The FIP-500 was designed with not one, but several innovative image capture techniques. This unprecedented visibility of the connector endface translates into optimal accuracy and repeatability.
Equip technicians against the no.1 cause of outages.
Enhanced illumination technique based on two LEDs
Violet LEDs (405-nm light) for better contrast
Custom-carved lenses for optimal image quality
In today’s fiber-dense environments, both single-fiber and multi-fiber connectors need to be reliably and rapidly inspected to keep networks running smoothly. Leveraging 35+ years of leading expertise in optical testing, we`ve designed the inspection scope that makes it easy for all technicians, everywhere.
Tower climbers require a tool that is self-contained and handy to use. The FIP-500 innovates with its tips that can be added with a quarter-turn click. It has never been easier to swap between single-fiber and multi-fiber tips. Bonus advantage: no loose parts that can be accidentally dropped!
This scope is intelligent and fully automated for the entire inspection. After it auto-detects the connector type, the FIP-500 carries out the test, gives a diagnostic and saves it, and then it will even reset itself. Zero-button inspection! Add this to the ease to swap tips, its touchscreen and ergonomic design, and the cumulative gains translate into huge time savings!
The FIP-500 stands out with its capability to deliver accurate results repeatedly for both single- and multi-fiber. With innovative image capture techniques powering its leading optical performance, the FIP-500 is the industry’s most reliable inspection scope, hands down. Combine this reliability to its ease of use, including its highly visible touchscreen and longer reach by default, you get the ideal tool to inspect hard-to-reach connectors in headends, exchanges, CORDs and HERDs.
Empower field teams with a trusty tool that is so intuitive that it requires no training, and that does everything by itself without even pressing a button, leaving no place for human error. Ensure impeccable FTTH rollout and services by keeping the no. 1 cause of network outages in check.
In today’s fiber-dominated landscape, technicians need to inspect single-fiber and multi-fiber connectors reliably and rapidly to avoid preventable network outages. Can a single scope do it all? See it for yourself.
Inspecting an MPO-12? Simply insert a connector in the FIP-500 and—in less than 10 seconds—a pass/fail result is automatically obtained and saved without the need for any settings or further manipulation.
Quick-connect tips: Swap tips in a quarter-turn click, a small but life-changing innovation. No loose parts, not a second wasted.
Longer reach: By design, the FIP-500 provides longer reach and better handling for inspection in dense fiber environments or on top of telecom towers.
Intuitive graphical user interface (GUI): Leveraging the capabilities of the touchscreen, the GUI is very user-friendly for any technician, regardless of their experience.
Long battery life: The FIP-500 is powered by a Lithium-Polymer rechargeable battery which can support a full day of continuous use.
Memory space: With an internal memory that can save up to 1800 MPO test results or 10 000 single-fiber test results, there is no need to stop and offload results. Bluetooth connectivity ensures that these results can be shared easily.
These features, added to an ergonomic hand grip, all come together in helping the technician to close jobs all day without any interruption. This battery life and memory space combo is unique in the industry—and will give field teams equipped with the FIP-500 yet another solid advantage on the competition.
Every aspect of the FIP-500 has been designed to make savings in time and expenses, lowering its overall cost of ownership.
No training required: Zero-button, fully automated inspection combined to an intuitive GUI makes it easy for any technician to make the most of the FIP-500, without training.
Less tips and no loose parts: By default, the FIP-500 provides a longer reach than regular tips, reducing the overall number of tips that a technician needs to carry around. The simple yet innovative quarter-turn mechanism to swap tips means that there are no loose parts when changing them, hence lowering the risk of losing items.
Future-proof: The FIP-500 supports the inspection of MPO connectors with up to 4 rows by default. Periodical releases will enable new software functionalities.
