MPO Connector End Face, Oblique Illumination, x40      MTP-12 Scope View, x40

Kingfisher's unique and innovate MPO Visual Cable Verifier Kit is a quick, versatile and inexpensive way to visually check MPO cable installations and patch leads for polarity and continuity, and overall end face condition. Just connect the source, and view the far end with the microscope to observe the repeating color pattern at the far end. Fiber 1 is easily identified with a winking light. The colour sequence indicates the connection type. While doing this, the user can also check if the overall connector end is clean. This method is inexpensive and easily scalable to any number of fibers (a 12 fiber connector is shown in the illustration). See Quick Reference Guide or Video for operation of this Kit.
