VIAVI acquired Trilithic in August 2017, in a union of two complementary leaders in test and measurement. Multiple system operators (MSOs) and their contractors can now choose from a wide, unified selection of cable test instruments addressing technologies up to DOCSIS 3.1, and providing the long-term economic benefits of efficiently minimizing leakage in home networks.
Trilithic was founded in 1986 as an engineering and assembly company that built and designed customer-directed products for telecommunications, military, and
industrial customers. From its modest beginnings as a two-man engineering team, Trilithic grew over the years and broadened its offerings of RF and microwave components by adding broadband solutions to its product line. Broadband Instruments and Systems offering test, analysis, and quality management solutions for the major cable television systems worldwide.
Since the invention of the fibre optic cable in the 1950s, these technological marvels have been inspected with the utmost care, using either the human eye or visual inspection probes.
The latter has previously been used to send a beam of light along the cable, with undamaged cables allowing the light to pass through to the other end. But in more recent times, the digital fibre inspection probe has taken any guesswork out of such practices while improving inspection accuracy.
TMG Equipment has built a leading range of testing tools for Australian technicians to improve their quality of work. VIAVI is one brand leading the way in fibre inspection tools, and the FBP-P5000 digital inspection probe has changed the game.
As VIAVIís only master distributor for Australian contractors, TMG is proud to present this blog and educate you on the benefits of digital inspections.
So, what do digital inspection probes do, you ask?
TMG offers the FBP-P5000 in conjunction with VIAVIís inspection software, FiberChek2. This product pairing offers a fail-safe solution for fibre optic technicians, with both inspection and analysis capabilities.
The digital probe connects directly to the bulkhead (female) and patch cord (male) sides of the cable, analysing and sending the information via USB to a laptop.
From here, FiberChek2 identifies and characterises defects and cable contamination, before revealing their location relative to the fibre core. The advanced software can be relied upon for accurate results much more than previous solutions, saving the technicianís time and the customerís money.
However, technicians fear not, there is still plenty of work to be done. In fact, FiberChek2 and the digital probe allow for configurable criteria to be preset to determine a pass/fail result on the cable.
Defects and contamination around the fibre core surface typically affect light transmission most significantly, so they call for the most aggressive examination. To combat this, FiberChek2 defines multiple concentric zones around the core, allowing technicians to establish various defect categories, including contamination, pit/chip and scratches.
By improving accuracy and offering configurable criteria, inspection results can be more consistent across inspections. This allows for a more effective grading process across entire fibre networks, making life easier for technicians and end-users alike.
To learn from these new digital processes, technicians can use FiberChek2 to save results in a HTML or PDF format. This offers a better overview of fibre networks than before, as results can be compared with accuracy and confidence.
Weíre passionate about improving the lives of Australiaís fibre optic inspectors. They keep the countryís telecommunications networks running smooth, and without them the digital age would grind to a halt.
For them, we offer a high-quality range of testing equipment, making their lives as convenient as possible. If youíre unsure about the effectiveness of a digital fibre inspection probe, get in contact with TMG Equipment for further advice.
