AFL is launching the aeRos® connected FOCIS WiFi2, the next generation fiber optic connector inspection system that uses an Android or iOS wireless connection for live image video streaming, auto-focus, and more. The FOCIS WiFi2 probe is ergonomic and lightweight, fitting perfectly and balancing naturally in the hand. The probe hardware has a single multipurpose button, a single multi-color functional status LED, and a battery charging port for all day mobility. The status LED enhances workflow productivity by allowing rapid operator assessment of the cleanliness of the fiber end face — either passing or failing standard rules — as well as “fiber not found” error notification.

The FOCIS WiFi2 utilizes AFL’s large portfolio of inspection adapter tips for both connectors and bulkhead sleeves, including all 2.5 mm (SC, FC, ST) and 1.25 mm (LC) ferrules, as well as multi-fiber connectors and bulkhead sleeves (MPO/MTP/MPO16). AFL offers an adapter tip for high density LC PC/UPC optical distribution frames as well.

The free FOCIS WiFi2 app (both Android and iOS) supports live image video streaming, auto-focus, IEC / IPC standard and user-customized pass/fail auto-analysis, pinch-to-zoom on end face images, report generation, multi-language GUI support and day/time stamped job saving.

FOCIS WiFi2 is the latest addition to AFL’s extensive inspection and cleaning product portfolio, which includes the OFS300 optical and VS300 video microscopes, the DFS1 digital microscope, the FOCIS WiFi PRO wireless fiberscope and the FOCIS Flex handheld Bluetooth® inspection probe with integrated screen. The One-Click® and CLETOP® cleaners, the FCC2 cleaning fluid and the FiberWipes complete the product portfolio of fiber end face cleaning products.
