[restab title=”Description”]

FOCIS Lightning is a self-contained multi-fiber connector inspection probe with integrated screen. It is intended specifically for the inspection of multi-fiber connectors and bulkheads such MPO and MTP® including multi-row varieties. FOCIS Lightning can perform industry standard and user-defined end-face cleanliness analysis at a rate of about 1 second per fiber. Lightning stores connector-level and individual fiber images, analysis, overlays, and zone tables locally and provides both WiFi and Bluetooth wireless links. The AFL FOCIS app (iOS and Android) provides a comprehensive and user-friendly feature set as well as connectivity with AFL’s cloud-based aeRos® workflow automation platform.

Pass / fail results in seconds: With the press of a single button, FOCIS Lightning auto-focuses, captures, centers and analyzes the multi-fiber end-face image to industry standard and user-defined criteria.

Untethered operation: With rechargeable battery and integrated 2.4” TFT color LCD screen, FOCIS Lightning can be used independently.

Multi-fiber front-end adapter tips: Multi-fiber front-end adapter tips support single row and multi-row MT connector inspection for a wide range of patch cords and bulkhead-mounted connectors having either PC/UPC or APC polished end-faces. The probe snout includes a key which in combination with a slot on the adapter tips ensures that adapter tips never loosen during use, under any circumstances.
