Polarity, Continuity and Endface Inspection Solution for MPO patch cords

Polarity, Continuity and Endface Inspection Solution for MPO patch cords

Since contamination and improper fiber crossing are key issues disrupting network performance, Sumix offers
a single solution for three essential tests
needed to verify MPO cables prior to installation and save troubleshooting time when cables are put into service.

End-to-end polarity validation —
type A (Straight), B (Crossed), C (Cross pairs) or custom.

Continuity confirmation to quickly check if there are no damaged fibers.

Connector endface inspection and Pass/Fail analysis to check for contamination, scratches, and defects that can impact signal transmission.

Applications

The software can be adjusted to custom fiber wiring making Sumix solution an essential tool to determine the position of each MPO fiber and to verify proper fiber order at the output.

How does it work?

MPO-Verifier from Sumix is an LED light module illuminating optical fibers of MPO connector in determined sequence. Manta-W+ fiber microscope performs optical inspection of the connector and identifies luminous optic fibers. The software analyzes the sequence of illuminated fibers on each end of the MPO cable and provides information about polarity type of the patchcord as well as each optic fiber position.
