Panduit's new OptiCam II Termination Tool has been redesigned from the ground up to make terminations faster and easier, and also to remove all uncertainty and doubt that contractors have terminated a fiber connector correctly.
It's got an LCD screen on the tool. It walks the contractor through all the steps to correctly terminate the optical fiber. The really great part about this is when they're done terminating, it will provide an insertion loss value for that connector. So now the contractor knows not just that they've terminated a connector, but how well they've done it.
One of the other great features of the tool is that it comes with a companion smartphone app. It stores all the data as well as the installer inputted information such as customer name, installer name and location. All that information is gathered on a smartphone and can be exported in an Excel file, to be submitted as customer documentation, proof of time and material billing, or do data analytics for figuring out which of your technicians are termination fiber the quickest and with the lowest loss value.
