IDEAL Networks Launches OC I Fibre Optic Certifier
IDEAL Networks has launched the new Optical Certifier I (OC I) Tier-1 certifier for multi-mode and single mode fibre cabling.
Designed to help installation contractors, network engineers and IT maintenance technicians achieve faster, first-time-right system acceptance, the OC I fibre certifier has an advanced suite of user-assistance features including a step-by-step reference wizard, intelligent fault diagnosis and patented margin meters.
Boasting a user friendly, tablet-inspired design with a 7in. high-resolution touchscreen and an intuitive app-like interface, IDEAL Networks’ OC I offers integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity as well as up to 12 hours of battery life. Moreover, its on-board reporting capabilities enable technicians to document their work live from the field, converting multiple measurements into a single, professional report in a format recognised by industry standards.
The main and remote units of the OC I both have access to the certifier’s full range of features and are compatible with the FIP 420B inspection probe to quickly inspect connector endfaces at both ends. This allows both the technician with the main unit and the person with the remote unit to see, understand and act on the results, without either being delayed by dirty or damaged connectors.
The OC I includes a 3-year warranty and a calibration interval of three years.
