Fluke Networks' FI-500 Fiber Inspection Scope Takes the Guesswork Out of Quality Assurance

Fluke Networks FI-500 Fiber Inspection Scope

The Simple Solution to an Enduring Challenge

Given the nature and use of high-density fiber patch panels, it’s no wonder that inspection provides a regular headache for network owners, contractors, and installers. Low light conditions in data centers and wiring cabinets make testing a tedious chore, as performing the test becomes a challenge of maneuvering and visibility. Fluke Networks’ FI-500 Fiber Inspection Scope with PortBright™ Illumination works to solve the problem by employing built-in probe illumination and a USB camera, providing a clear image of the fiber optic endface in under one second. The device’s autofocus gives you an immediate, reliable image to evaluate the cleanliness and performance of your fiber endfaces.

Save Time and Money on Inspections

The FI-500 Fiber Inspection Scope offers an affordable solution that provides fast inspections, without the high cost associated with fully automated inspection scopes. The autofocus feature enables the user to troubleshoot quickly, saving time and money compared with manual fiber scopes. The end result is fast and easy prevention of fiber endface contamination, the number one cause of fiber failure according to a recent survey of installers and network owners.

Staying ahead of the game and preventing significant fiber failures is the long-term result of a short-term investment in improved inspection equipment. Fluke Networks’ FI-500 FiberInspector™ Scope pays dividends for years with its rugged design and reliable performance.
