Signal degradation may occur as a result of a dirty or damaged optic fiber ferrule endface. The Site Master S820E supports an application that lets you inspect fiber optic terminations, using a Video Inspection Probe (VIP) such as Anritsu Model G0306A. See Figure: Anritsu G0306A Video Inspection Probe. The captured image and analysis results help determine if a connector should be cleaned or replaced. Pass/Fail evaluations are made in accordance with the IEC61300-3-35 standard. You can also save the data to file and generate test reports.
