When using the FIP Inspection Probe, why is the Auto-Focus not working?
The following FIP Inspection Probes support Auto-Focus.
Under the FIP Controls, the automatic features will be listed, including the Auto Focus feature.
IF the Auto-Focus is disabled, a manual focus will be required using the focus knob.
The Focus Indicator bar will show whether the current view is optimized for capture. A green indicator shows a picture that can be captured and analyzed. Analysis will be more difficult with a yellow indicator, and impossible with a red indicator.
Here is an example of the status indicator on ConnectorMAX mobile.
Here is an example of the focus status indicator on ConnectorMAX PC.
Note: the Auto-Focus feature is ONLY available in live video mode, and starts automatically once a fiber is plugged in.
If the Auto-Focus is not working:
- Ensure the connector is seated and aligned properly
- Disable and re-enable the Auto-Focus
- Ensure live mode is selected
- Re-insert the fiber into the probe
