FOCIS Flex

FOCIS Flex
Fiber Optic Connector Inspection System
U.S. Patent 9217688B2
Features
•• Auto-focus and auto-centering for fast, easy inspection
•• Untethered operation simplifies access at patch panels
•• IEC, IPC and user-defined pass/fail analysis
•• Self-contained, compact, hand-held inspection solution
•• Use independently, or pair with FlexScan or FlexTester OTDR
•• Save results internally and upload via Bluetooth or USB
•• Ergonomic design fits in the palm of your hand
•• Generate inspection reports using included TRM® 2.0
Applications
•• Inspect connectors on patch cords or in bulkhead adapters
•• Optical network installation, troubleshooting and maintenance
•• Inspect MPO/MTP multi-fiber connectors
•• Assure critical fiber infrastructure performs properly
•• Keep fiber connections working at optimal performance levels
•• Verify proper connector cleaning practices are being used
Pass/fail results in seconds: With the press of a single button, FOCIS Flex auto-focuses, captures and centers the end-face image,
applies pass/fail rules, displays image and pass/fail results, and wirelessly transfers image and results to a paired FlexScan or FlexTester
OTDR. All in a matter of seconds!
Independent, untethered operation: With rechargeable battery supply and integrated display, FOCIS Flex can be used independently –
without requiring an external OTDR or display unit.
Pair with FlexScan or FlexTester OTDR: Still prefer to view and save images and pass/fail results on your FlexTester OTDR? No
problem! Captured images and pass/fail results are immediately displayed and easily saved on the paired device along with associated
OTDR and/or insertion loss test results.
Save results internally or externally: FOCIS Flex internally stores thousands of results using file-naming capabilities similar to
FlexScan and FlexTester OTDRs. A micro-USB port supports fast upload of internally stored results to PC, and ensures your FOCIS Flex
software can be updated to the latest features and supported languages.
Wide range of adapter tips: Interchangeable adapter tips support connector inspection for a wide range of both single-fiber and multifiber patchcords and bulkhead-mounted connectors having either PC or APC polished end-faces.
FOCIS Flex is available in standalone kit configurations including soft carry case / holster and user-selected adapter tips. Available FlexScan
and FlexTester PRO and Complete Kits bundle FOCIS Flex with the selected OTDR, fiber ring and cleaning supplies.
