  • FiberSafe Portable Microscope
Feb 2010
Kingfisher International Pty. Ltd.Request Info
SCORESBY, Australia, Feb. 23, 2010 – The KI 6610 FiberSafe microscope manufactured by Kingfisher International P/L is a handheld field-portable scope used to inspect fiber optic connector end-face quality and is used by fiber optic technicians and installers requiring simple, rugged and affordable test gear.

The microscope’s features include good overall ergonomics, intuitive operation, high-quality eye safety filters for red and infrared light, clear safety labeling, easy focus and X-Y alignment image centering, and stabilized LED illumination with a timer.

Power is provided by a single AAA alkaline battery, or from an external micro-USB lead. Triple illumination options include coaxial for high-level image detail, oblique for revealing only major defects and contaminants, and core illumination that shows continuity and subsurface fiber core cracks. The scope can inspect duplex patch leads, and a variety of connector adaptors is available, including 2.5- and 1.25-mm PC/APC types to fit both simplex and duplex connectors. It is supplied with a soft carry case and an adapter ring for various scope connector adapters.

The illumination level is regulated and unaffected by battery voltage, and a low battery is indicated by flashing illumination. Operating temperature is from -15 to 55 °C, and the microscope damage power level is 30 dBm.

In addition to field use, a combination of features makes this scope convenient for bench use, and it offers tripod or lanyard mount.

It inspects optical connector end faces in the field or factory, single- and multimode fiber, and single and dual connectors. It is available in 200× and 400× magnification versions

An instrument consisting essentially of a tube 160 mm long, with an objective lens at the distant end and an eyepiece at the near end. The objective forms a real aerial image of the object in the focal plane of the eyepiece where it is observed by the eye. The overall magnifying power is equal to the linear magnification of the objective multiplied by the magnifying power of the eyepiece. The eyepiece can be replaced by a film to photograph the primary image, or a positive or negative relay...
oblique illumination
A common technique in microscopy, oblique illumination is one in which the object is illuminated by a light source that is at an oblique angle (on the side) to the optical axis. This technique is often used to highlight otherwise visible structures as well as giving the image a three dimensional appearance.
