FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
RENTON, Washington, Apr. 25, 2011 — Lightel Technologies, Inc. today announced the upcoming release of its newest ViewConn video microscope, ViewConn Pro. The VC-8200 is a handheld integrated tool for fiberoptic connector inspection, evaluation, documentation and cleaning. A power meter can also be integrated into the unit as a customer installable add-in. With its built-in Wi-Fi, ViewConn Pro can send its connector Pass/Fail analysis reports via email to other locations or store them directly within the unit.
Lightel has a history of innovation within the fiberoptic industry. Lightel’s patented ViewConn was the first video microscope offering inspection and cleaning in one handheld unit. ViewConn Plus originated the dual microscope concept which allows rapid inspection of both male and female connectors without changing tips. The industry’s first integrated power meter, the VC6-OPM, added an important third step – testing. ViewConn Pro now adds on-board documentation and analysis.
Designed for ease of use in the field, the 5″ display provides clear, sharp images, and the large touchscreen buttons provide all the necessary controls for image capture and analysis. As is its trademark, Lightel’s pre-loaded ConnectorView™ Plus software requires no calibration and provides its analysis reports in seconds.
“With ViewConn Pro, Lightel continues to show the leadership and attention to industry trends that our customers have come to expect,” said Ted Bartunek, Lightel’s sales manager for inspection and cleaning products. “ViewConn Pro is the first truly comprehensive tool for field inspection, analysis and cleaning.”
