                                        Safety Information
IMPORTANT! Proper care in handling should be taken when using any precision optical test
equipment. Scratched or contaminated optical connectors can impact the performance of the instrument.
NOTE! FOCIS Lightning contains no user serviceable parts. This instrument must be returned to AFL or
authorized agents for repair.
IMPORTANT! To ensure accurate measurements and operation, it is important to keep connector end-
faces on the fiber under test clean.
CAUTION! Never view a live fiber. Never look directly into the optical outputs of fiber optic network
equipment, test equipment, patch cords and jumpers. Laser radiation is harmful to eyes.
WARNING! Use only the specified AC adapter. Use of another type of AC adapter can damage the
instrument and create the danger of fire and electrical shock.
WARNING! To avoid the danger of fire and electrical shock:
••   Never use a voltage that is different from that for which the AC adapter is rated.
••   Do not plug the unit into a power outlet that is shared by other devices.
••   Never modify the power cord or excessively bend, twist, or pull it.
••   Do not allow the power cord to become damaged. Do not place heavy objects on the power cord or
     expose it to heat.
••   Never touch the AC adapter while your hands are wet.
••   Should the power cord become seriously damaged (internal wiring exposed or shorted), contact the
     manufacturer to request servicing.
NOTE! Refer to your company’s safety procedures when working with optical systems.
NOTE! Follow your company’s approved cleaning procedures.

                                         General Information

                           FOCIS Lightning | aeRos® Solution Overview
AFL’s FOCIS Lightning Fiber Optic Connector Inspection System, paired with AFL’s aeRos cloud
with FOCIS Flex app comprise a complete fiber optic connector inspection and workflow and data
management solution.

FOCIS Lightning Fiber Optic Connector Inspection System
FOCIS Lightning is a self-contained, compact, and hand-held inspection probe that can be used
independently or paired with AFL's FOCIS Flex app and aeRos cloud. FOCIS Lightning is a self-contained
multi-fiber connector inspection probe with integrated screen. It is intended specifically for the inspection
of multi-fiber connectors and bulkheads such MPO and MTP® including multi-row varieties. The FOCIS
Lightning can perform industry standard and user-defined end-face cleanliness analysis at a rate of
about 1 second per fiber. Lightning stores connector level and individual fiber images, analysis, overlays,
and zones tables locally and provides both WiFi and Bluetooth wireless links. The AFL FOCIS app (iOS
and Android) provides a comprehensive and user-friendly feature set as well as connectivity with AFL’s
cloud-based aeRos® workflow automation platform.

aeRos
aeRos is an open, cloud-based, workflow management platform that facilitates two-way communication
and data exchange from engineering to project management to your technician in the field. Now
everyone has access to test results and can address challenges in real-time. aeRos allows project
managers to send jobs directly to technicians, defining tests and configurations as needed. Throughout
the job, managers can monitor technicians' progress and help to solve problems as they arise. aeRos
solution is available in two options: aeRos BASIC and aeRos PRO:
aeRos® BASIC account — Data Management solution that allows users to save their test data in the
aeRos Cloud and then retrieve it from anywhere at any time with a standard Internet browser. aeRos
BASIC is free to all owners of AFL’s aeRos enable test equipment.
aeRos® PRO account — Workflow Management solution that allows users to manage their entire
testing workflow and enables seamless and efficient communications and data management. aeRos
PRO is available in annual and lifetime License configurations.

FOCIS Flex App
By pairing the FOCIS Lightning inspection probe with the FOCIS Flex app and aeRos PRO, users are
enabled to control their test hardware directly from their Android or iOS smart devices. With aeRos PRO
account, test projects and setups can be created and predefined in aeRos cloud, and then pushed to the
smart device app to simplify the test process for technicians. Technicians receive a notification on their
smart device and can work on scheduled projects. As the project is completed, inspection results are
automatically synchronized with the cloud for instant access, analysis, and reporting.
FOCIS Flex app is available via Google play store or App Store.

                   Understanding MPO Connector Key Orientation Settings
The goal of the MPO Key Up/Down settings is to provide users with
the correct information about fiber numbering (pinout) after the
image capture.
When inspecting MPO connector using bulkheads with opposed                                           A
keys, it is important to define the MPO key orientation in the
in Live Image mode prior to the Image Capture.
••   The MPO bulkhead key position indication (UP or DOWN) is
     provided in the upper right corner of the display A .
••   At power-up, FOCIS Lightning defaults to key Up orientation.
••   If needed, press the Left Arrow key B to toggle the MPO
     connector key orientation to DOWN.
••   This setting should be defined in the in Live Image mode prior to
     the Image Capture.                                                       B


                  Understanding Fiber Numbering After The Image Capture

After the fiber end-face image is captured, FOCIS Lightning transitions to the Captured Image mode
displaying inspection results.
••   Default display:
      –– Fiber #1 location is indicated by Blue box -
      –– Passing fiber is indicated by Green circle -
       –– Failing fiber is indicated by Red circle -
••   When the MPO key orientation is set to Up C in the Live mode, fiber #1 is located at top-right D as
     indicated by Blue box.
••   When the MPO key orientation is set to Down E ,in the Live mode, after image capture, fiber #1 is
     located at bottom-left F as indicated by Blue box.

and “base 12” fiber configurations per row as well as other MPO options.
Note that solid circle is “dark” or an unused fiber, and open circle is an active or used fiber and will be
analyzed by FOCIS Lightning.
