Looking at key benefits of the FastMT fiberscope and a discussion on automated vs. manual optical inspection

Our North American distributor, Fiber Optic Center, wrote an excellent blog recently about the comparison of manual fiber scopes vs. automated fiber scopes. In FOC author Chris Rollinson's words, "'automation' is the holy grail of the fiber optic industry." Chris goes on to explain how FiberQA's FastMT fiber scope can improve upon the quality control process during inspection of fiber optic cable connectors in cable assembly houses.

At FiberQA, we make automation our businees. We believe that manual fiber scopes are the past, while fast, reliable, automated fiber scopes are the future.

Demo New AVIT Models at OFC in LA

We are always excited to attend industry events, but we are absolutely chomping at the bit for next week’s OFC show in Los Angeles! Our company’s main goal is to revolutionize and automate the way manufacturers and consumers inspect and clean their cable connectors, and our brand new AVIT-dt and AVIT-bp systems continue that legacy.
