AFL adds FOCIS Duel connector inspection system to T&I range

The FOCIS Duel fibre optic connector inspection system is part of the Test
& Inspection equipment range released by AFL Telecommunications in the ANZ region
in 2018.

Building on their highly successful FOCIS Flex design, AFL has brought a
new level of speed and efficiency to connector inspection with the new FOCIS

The FOCIS Duel fibre optic connector inspection system contains two
ports: the first is fully-featured with the same capabilities as the FOCIS Flex,
while the second port is a fast and convenient female-style adapter for
patch-cord viewing, with auto-focus and 2X zoom capabilities. This added
capability allows technicians to inspect connectors on bulkhead adapters (Port
1) and patch cords (Port 2) without swapping adaptor tips.

The FOCIS Duel is a self-contained, tether-free, compact, handheld
inspection solution, available with more than three dozen tips supporting all
commonly used connector types. The new Port 2 adapter tips are available for
all common connector types – Universal 1.25mm and 2.5mm, SC and LC in both UPC
and APC polish types. With the press of a single button, Port 1 of the FOCIS
Duel auto-focuses, captures, centres and analyses the end-face image to
industry standard IEC 61300-3-35 (2015), IPC, AT&T and user-defined

The FOCIS Duel can be used independently thanks to the rechargeable
battery and integrated 2.4″ colour TFT LCD screen. The inspection system can
perform cleanliness analysis and store Port 1 images and reports locally. It
works with the AFL FOCIS App (iOS and Android), which provides a comprehensive
and user-friendly feature set as well as connectivity with AFL’s cloud-based
aeRos workflow automation platform.

The FOCIS Duel is an optimal tool for optical network installation,
turn-up, troubleshooting and maintenance, and also provides verification that
proper connector cleaning practices are being used.
