Westover Scientific and Laser 2000 to highlight fiber inspection at ECOC 2007

Westover Scientific and Laser 2000 have announced they will be demonstrating solutions for fiber optic inspection at the ECOC 2007 conference, to be held on September 17-19 in Berlin, Germany.
The HD3 is available as a standalone display or as a part of select inspection kits. (PresseBox) (Wessling, ) Inspection demonstrations will occur at the Laser 2000 booth (#17065) featuring Westover products and procedures that have been adopted by several major telecoms, systems manufactures, trainers and industry groups to prevent fiber damage caused by dirty fiber connectors. Products featured will include Westover’s FiberChek2™ platform and the new HD3 hand held video display.

The new HD3 compact video display is used with Westover’s probe microscope to provide a highly portable and efficient display for viewing and inspecting fiber connector endfaces. The HD3 is an ideal solution for technicians in the field or on-the-go, featuring a precision 1.8” TFT LCD screen incorporated into a durable, ergonomic, drop tested enclosure and is powered by a rechargeable NiMH battery.

Westover’s FiberChek2 is a fully integraged hardware/software platform that plugs directly into a laptop and provides image capture, repeatable pass/fail grading, detailed data analysis and comprhensive reporting. The automated analysis capabilities of FiberChek2 removes subjectivity from visual inspection, allowing organizations to implement standards at every stage of handling fiber throughout their network (e.g. installation, network test, troubleshooting and maintenance).
