Kingfisher's unique and innovate MPO Visual Cable Verifier Kit is a quick, versatile and inexpensive way to check out overall MPO cable installations and patch leads for polarity and continuity. Just connect the source, and view the far end with the microscope to observe the repeating color pattern at the far end. The colour sequence indicates the connection type. While doing this, the user can also check if the overall connector end is clean. This solution is inexpensive and easily scalable to any number of fibers. (a 12 fiber connector is shown in the illustration)
Typical MPO / MTP™ Applications
- Quickly verify the overall A, B, C status & continuity of patch leads.
- Quickly verify overall polarity & continuity of installed links up to about 1 Km.
- Quickly check & clean the entire connector end-face, particularly around alignment pins & away from the fibers.
- A single solution for 4, 8, 12 & 24 fiber connectors.
- Both single mode & multimode fiber.
- Low to high test volume, excellent operational flexibility.
- Generally meets current regulations & best practice for eye safety.
