GAOTek’s Optical Fiber Microscope with Unidirectional Focus and 400x Magnification is used for the inspection of the end-face of the fiber optic connectors and provides the network personnel with high-performance fiber inspection solutions. It can magnify 125μm fibers to 400 times. The enlarged picture can be seen clearly through a video signal to the video display monitor where the status of the fiber end-face is displayed. This Optical Fiber Microscope is portable, easy to operate, and multi-functional.
It can detect simplex and duplex fiber ends located in both male and female connectors. The device eliminates the need to find solutions for hard-to-reach areas inspection. The probe of the microscope can not only detect ferrule end of the patch cord, but also the fiber end face mounted into the bulkhead adapters with PC/APC end. It can also access and inspect the connectors installed at the bottom of patch panels or inside hardware devices without any removal or disassembling of equipment with specific or customized tips., The unique one-way focus control of the probe greatly simplifies the work compared to the traditional probe.

Fiber Microscope Probe (GAO-OFM-102-A)
GAO-OFM-102-A Probe initially enlarges the fiber end face through optical amplification, then output the image via CCD electronically. Due to the complicated and precise structure, the magnification is decided firstly by the multiple of objective lens and size of CCD inside the probe and varies afterward with its corresponding output monitor. In other words, the display is the ultimate factor responsible for the magnification. The bigger the size of the display, the larger magnification a whole set microscope hold. The general size of monitors we offer includes 2.5, 8 inches two type for handheld on-site inspection, 10.4 inches for bench-top labs or factory inspection, or wifi one for laptop inspection.
The table below indicates different magnification with respect to the corresponding display.
|Note: All the image size is based on fiber end face with a diameter of 125 μm and measured directly;
The magnification is derived from actual image size divided by diameter length of 125μm.
Field of View: The field for ferrule detected can reach up to 0.31*0.25mm, which includes the end face with 125 μm diameter in the central and 300μm area around. More fields can be viewed when adjusting the probe slightly.
Handle Body the handle houses CCD camera, ray apparatus structure, optical routing system, coaxial lamp-house, focus control, video output, and power supply system etc. Default output signal PAL, an optional signal for NTSC or USB through either explicit or embedded devices. The inner structure of handle body is compact and complex that, a fever may be caused for a long time work. This isn’t a mechanical defect but a normal phenomenon. Any action in disassembling of the probe without authorization will lose the service of troubleshooting.
1) Handle: also named as a probe, all the optical routines are concentrated inside the handle, responsible for the fiber imaging.
2) Focus control: control for definition adjust of the image.
3) Assembly nut: lock the tips to keep alignment with the probe.
4) Assembly: central kits to imaging alignment.
5) Lens-bar: central kits to tips usage and imaging.
6) Cable: wire output to connect the terminal, please note that repeated bending resulting in damage or break to the signal transmission should be avoided.
Wide ranges of adapter tips are available to reach assorted connectors inspection, from the common use of 2.5PC-M, LC-FC-F, SC-PC-F, FC-PC-F to specific ones as E2000-PC-F, MPO-APC-F etc., or angle tips for bulkhead connector, patch cord of PC /APC etc., hard-to-access testing points.
Tips Installation and Switch
Installation: Choose an appropriate tip with regard to the connector inspection. Loose the nut and put the tip in the front of the probe along with the lens-bar. Screw the nut and lock the tip.
Switch: Loose the nut firstly to remove the tip and switch with an alternative one.
Try to avoid the friction incurred to the lens-bar for badly damage on imaging.
Loose the nut completely if the tip is attached too tightly.
Screw the nut completely to lock the tip.
Lens-bar may be contaminated after a long-time work, use the cotton or swap to clean the surface as below.
Video Monitor (GAO-OFM-102-B)
GAO-OFM-102-B Viewer not only keeps the single-frame capture/video/store functions but it can also give sounds notification (power on/off/ TF memory card/signal status). It can be carried along the wrist whenever and wherever with ease for on-site inspection, and the connector applies Audio & Video standard to secure the connection.
Also please take care the plug-in direction, any reverse or opposite operation will cause no input signal.
