Moritex Europe announced the availability of a new system enabling on-site inspection of fiber connectors.
By integrating its video PalmScope with a fiber-optic connector video microscope, a new versatile solution for inspecting the ends of fiber connectors on site is now available. Both manufacturers and users of fiber systems will benefit from the flexible image capture, video recording, and storage capabilities of the new system facilitating true on-site micro-inspection and quality control.
Operating the system is simple, even for untrained operators. The seven front panel buttons on the video PalmScope provide intuitive control of image viewing, freezing, storing, file name editing and review by means of a gallery of video icons and thumbnail images.
Unlike many existing fiber inspection systems, all power for the video PalmScope and microscope is supplied from a single on-board Ni-Mh battery pack that may be recharged from an external power supply unit. Tested and approved to CE and FCC regulations, the video PalmScope offers a choice of language for all on-screen display operations ? English, French, German, Italian and Spanish.
Incorporating a 6.4 inch (16 cm) TFT LCD screen, the system is can also display and freeze high quality (512 x 768 resolution), full frame resolution jpeg images on screen at the touch of a single button. With a potential 1 Gbit/sec on its removable CompactFlash card storage capacity, the video PalmScope can store thousands of compressed images or 30 minutes of video.
