Product Description

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.

Size (inch) 2.7 3.5 8 10.4
Parameters Enlarged Diameter 21.0 24.0 51.0 62.5
Magnification 168 192 408 500
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.

Tips Selection

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.

Please note:

 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.

Power on: Press the button in the upper right hand corner for 3-5 seconds, to power on, and a check-up page shows up afterward. And make sure the TF memory card (default 8G) has been put in before the display, or sounds and texts notifications would act on. The charging status shows up in the bottom left hand corner, date time shows up in the upper right hand corner and record period/memory status shows up in the bottom right-hand corner.

Image Adjust: 

 Press “Ok” to choose Image adjustment of “Brightness/Contrast/Color”;
 Press “Ok” again to switch the in-between options;
 Press arrows to adjust to an appropriate value;
 Press “ESC” to return to the check-up page.

Capture and Video:

 Press “Capture” to save the image, files will be saved in the TF on real-time name.
 Press “Video” to record the video and “ESC” to stop, files will be saved in the TF on real-time name.

Play back:

Return to the check-up page, press “Ok” to choose “Video/Image” mode for paly back.
 Arrows: press arrows key to adjust the volume;
 Pause: press “Ok” to pause;
 Delete: press “●” and “Ok” to delete files.


Return to the check-up page, press “Ok” to choose the setting mode for adjustment.

Please note:
 Please charge the display periodically to avoid any battery leak or damage;
 Please note the plug-in direction for the AV connector, the upper one is for signal transmission while the down one is for holding purpose. Any opposite or reverse operation will cause no input signal.

 Please note first-in files will be auto overlapped if the memory is full for the further record.
