AFL gives technicians new connector inspection reporting option for TRM software


AFL's Test and Inspection unit is offering connector inspection reporting to its TRM 2.0 Test Results Manager software, a Windows-based software designed to view test results and generate reports using data uploaded from AFL's OTDRs, Optical Power Meters (OPM), Optical Loss Test Sets (OLTS) and/or FOCIS family of connector inspection probes. By making this update, technicians can use the TRM 2.0 software to create inspection only reports, as well as combined OTDR, OLTS/OPM and inspection reports using images and pass/fail results from AFL's FOCIS Flex and FOCIS Wi-Fi inspection solutions.

TRM 2.0 is also being included in AFL's OTDR and data-logging OPM Kits. AFL is also adding TRM 2.0 to FOCIS Flex and FOCIS Wi-Fi Kits, ensuring users are able to produce printed or electronic reports from their connector inspection results. Another feature of TRM 2.0 is an updated version of FOCIS2Go, AFL's utility for copying and renaming inspection results files to associate them with separately uploaded OTDR, OLTS and/or OPM results. In addition, TRM provides batch editing capabilities to edit and reapply OTDR or OLTS pass/fail limits before generating reports.

FOCIS Flex is a fully self-contained, auto-focusing inspection probe with integrated display, pass/fail analysis, rechargeable battery and internal storage plus Bluetooth and USB interfaces. AFL's FOCIS Wi-Fi inspection solution communicates via Wi-Fi to smartphones and tablets running the FOCIS Mobile app, converting them into advanced connector inspection tools. The FOCIS Mobile app is available for Android and iOS devices from Google Play and the Apple App Store at no charge. Release
