SENKO Advanced Components, a leader in innovative is set to launch its latest fibre optic inspection device at ANGA COM 2019 (Cologne, 4 – 6 June, 2019).
Providing speedy and efficient analysis of fibre during endface inspection, the new Smart Probe 2 allows data centre and telecoms providers to save maintenance time and help prevent network failures.
SENKO says 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 centres to inspect, document and clean each fibre optic endface in a new installation to reduce connectivity disturbances.
Aiming to increase speed and efficiency of these inspections, SENKO developed the new Smart Probe 2, a fiber optic inspection device featuring wi-fi that connects to both Android and Apple devices. Designed with the hard-pressed installer in mind, the Smart Probe 2 easily 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 fiber inspections in as much detail as required.
“Network operators, as well as data centers, spend a lot of time re-inspecting fibre connectivity after installation” said Dave Aspray, European Sales Manager at SENKO. “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.
