AFL launches hand-held Noyes DFS1 Digital FiberScope
By Alyssa Dalton
June 14, 2011 – AFL is introducing the Noyes DFS1 Digital FiberScope, an ‘ergonomically-designed’, hand-held fiber optic connector video inspection unit. Describing the tool as ideal for optical cable connector and bulkhead adapter inspection, the DFS1 delivers magnified images via USB port to AFL’s M200 and M700 OTDRs and C840, C850, C860 and C880 OTDRs and Certification Testers. A large adjustment knob allows for focusing and a “trigger button” signals the attached device to capture the image for analysis and archiving. The DFS1 is powered through the USB port, eliminating the need for additional batteries or AC adapters, says AFL.
