EXFO Inc. (NASDAQ: EXFO, TSX: EXF) has unveiled the ConnectorMax MPO Link Test Solution, which provides testing of polarity, continuity, and connector cleanliness in multifiber push-on (MPO/MTP) fiber links in a single offering.
In use, the ConnectorMax combines a light source at one end of the fiber-optic cable and a fiber inspection probe for analysis at the other end. It enables technicians to perform inspection and polarity and continuity checks with the same tools. It also will deliver a clear pass/fail diagnosis of MPO 12 and MPO 24 links in a single report, EXFO asserts. The offering saves both time and money, as it enables technicians to check polarity and continuity in approximately the same time as inspection alone while obviating the need to purchase multiple tools.
“The market was missing a quick, reliable, and less-costly method to test multifiber cables before installation, so if outages occurred technicians would be certain their pre-tested links were not the cause,” said Stéphane Chabot, EXFO’s vice president, test and measurement. “The ConnectorMax MPO Link Test Solution provides a fit-for-purpose solution that helps our customers test and turn up networks right the first time—making deployments faster, more efficient, and cost-effective.
EXFO will demonstrate the ConnectorMax MPO Link Test Solution at ECOC this month in Rome, September 24 to 26 in Stand 418.
