Fluke Networks FI-500 FiberInspector Micro - FI-500 removes the hassle associated with inspecting fibre end faces, especially in low light and high cable density situations. It is very simple to use: Simply plug the cable into the FI-500 and touch the AF button. Within seconds, the fibre end face comes into sharp, clear view. And if you're working in a difficult to reach place or you can't get the image to stand still, just touch the pause button to freeze the image.

  • PortBright™ illumination to see ports in dark and dense panels
  • Autofocus for stable images in a few seconds
  • Large display to view single mode and multimode fibre end faces
  • Includes 4 UPC tips (LC, SC, 1.25 mm and 2.50 mm).

The FI-500 is designed to simplify the inspection process. The built-in PortBright flashlight helps you find the right port or cable. The small-profile probe fits into tight spots and features push-button controls for simple operation. Autofocus provides a sharp view of the end face in a few seconds, while the pause button freezes the image on the crisp 320 x 240 display for more detailed inspection.

The FI-500 FiberInspector Micro fills the gap between a manual scope and a fully automated inspection scope. The FI-500 has the simplicity and practicality of a manual inspection scope, but with advanced features to reduce troubleshooting and inspection time.

Manual fibre inspection scopes are simple to use, but they don't work well on patch panels or situations where there is a high density of fibre. Holding it up to one eye and closing your other eye is often inconvenient or impractical, especially in a dark room.

Fully automatic inspection scopes analyze and grade the cleanliness of fibre connections which is important for many applications, but analysis is usually not needed for quick basic troubleshooting.
