Troubleshooting Fiber on the Cheap

If you troubleshoot fiber on a regular basis, you probably have an array of tools to help you do the job, including an Optical Time Domain Reflectometer. But we often get questions from customers who don’t troubleshoot fiber enough to justify such an expensive tool.

The Poet’s Guide to the Physics of Twisted Pair Cabling

I once took a class where the professor would explain concepts in two ways. First, he would dive into the mathematics behind the idea, filling the whiteboard with equations and showing how they all related to one another. He tagged this “for the engineers”. Then, he would explain the concept again, but this time, with no math at all. This he said, was “for the poets”.

Prototypage d’un avenir de tests en « mains libres »

Sometimes, it seems like you need an extra hand when you’re testing.  For example, when using our FI-3000 FiberInspector Pro MPO camera, you need a hand to hold the connector, a second to hold the camera, and a third to run the phone or Versiv unit and view the images.  Most of the time, it’s not a big deal – for example, once you get the cable connected to the camera, you’ve got a free hand to operate the phone or Versiv.  But it could help productivity in some cases if you had that third hand.  Since we’re not in the prosthetics business,
