The USB 1.1 converteris an upgrade kit for use with FBP-series probes and includes the basic FiberChek software. It lets users quickly and easily view, capture,save, and print images of fiber end faces. It features an image capture button to conveniently and instantly capture fiber end face images on screen.
FBP Video Probe Microscope
The FBP video probe microscope, in single or dual-magnification (200/400X), isthe essential inspection tool for use with JDSU test platforms. The key components of the probe include an integrated lightsource, a 1/3-inch complimentary metal oxide semiconductor(CMOS) video camera, a focusing mechanism, and an optional image capture button. It is powered through the universal serial bus (USB) port and utilizes a blue coaxial light emitting diode (LED) light source with an advanced camera system to produce a high resolution fiber end face image. It fits and operates comfortably and easily in-hand, letting users inspect hard-to-reach connectors that are installed on the backside of patch panels or inside optical devices. The focus control is conveniently located on the probe to easily adjust the focus of the fiberimage,while the optional dual-magnification control lets users quickly change between high- and low-magnification views.
The FBP probe microscope connects to the JDSU optical test platforms or to a PC/ laptop via a USB digital converter. Simply connect the FBP probe to the module and plug theUSB connection in an open USB port. The USB module , like the probe,offers an optional QuickCapture? button to instantly capture thefiber endface imageonthe display. For use with a PC/laptop, a fiber analysis program (FiberChek) is included on a CD and requires software/hardware installation. No additional software is needed to interface with these JDSU test platforms: T-BERD, MTS, or TestPad.
TheUSB analog-to-digital converter is available in either a 4-pin or 6-pin configuration. The FBPP-USB3 connects to a standard 4-pin FBP probe, while the FBPP-USB1 model connects to a 6-pin FBP probe equipped with an integrated QuickCapture? button used to instantly capture fiber end face images.
