VIAVI/JDSU FiberChek Sidewinder
Automated multifiber connector inspection & analysis
The FiberChek Sidewinder is the industryâ€™s first â€œall-in-oneâ€ handheld inspection and analysis microscope for multifiber connectors such as MPO. The latest addition to VIAVIâ€™s awardwinning FiberChek family delivers a completely automated solution to inspect and analyze every fiber of an MPO or other multifiber connector with industry-leading reliability and speed.
Industryâ€™s fastest MPO inspection workflow
As MPO connectivity continues to grow in adoption, maintaining MPO end faces is more important than ever. Managing clean MPO connections requires systematic and proactive methods that many technicians may find troublesome, confusing and time-consuming. Sidewinder eliminates these challenges by fully automating every detail of the MPO inspection workflow to ensure fast and reliable results.
Automatic test results fibers in less than 12 seconds
Nothing comes close to the speed, reliability, and intuitive operation that Sidewinder delivers for MPO inspection and analysis. Simply insert it into the bulkhead, press a button, and the Sidewinder will provide automatic results for all 12 MPO fibers in fewer than 12 seconds! Eliminate hassles with manually adjusting controls to focus, scan, or count which fiber you are on and turn minutes into seconds for testing each connector.
