SENKO Advanced Components is to launch a new fibre-optic inspection device at this year’s ANGA COM (Cologne, June 4 to 6).
Providing speedy and efficient analysis of fibre during endface inspection, the new Smart Probe 2 allows data centres and telecoms providers to save maintenance time and help prevent network failures.
The majority of network failures are caused by connectivity issues that can be prevented. It is now becoming a common practice for telcos and data centers to inspect, document and clean each fiber optic endface in a new installation to reduce connectivity disturbances.
Smart Probe 2 records and archives results to aid the analysis and traceability of fibre connectivity issues. The wireless device comes with the unique VUE3 app featuring pass/fail analytical software and a flexible data archiving tool that enables the operator to upload results of fibre inspections in as much detail as required.
“Network operators, as well as data centres, spend a lot of time re-inspecting fiber connectivity after installation” said Dave Aspray, European Sales Manager at SENKO. “Our customer feedback tells us that documenting evidence of fiber after inspection is essential for traceability. We developed the Smart Probe 2 to automatically upload fiber inspection results for increased visibility during inspection and for reliable documentation. Whilst producing detailed and thorough results, the Smart probe 2 also reduces the time and costs required to inspect fibre. The Smart Probe 2 is therefore the most cost and time-effective tool for carrying out high volume inspections easily and efficiently.”
The Smart Probe 2 also includes a built-in capture button, a 5-hour battery life and an LED light to illuminate the adapter being inspected providing high-visibility in both high-density data centres and poorly lit telecom cabinets.
