The FIP100 from Tempo is a fully automated inspection tool that provides fast and reliable analysis of fiber optic connector end faces and bulkheads.

With a single button press, the FIP100 automatically focuses, captures an image of the connector endface, and provides a pass/fail result.

The pass/fail status of the connector is instantly reported via a red/green LED on the probe. Detailed results are shown on the iOS or Android app, which provides PDF report generation and sharing.

Both apps are pre-loaded with pass/fail requirements from IEC 61300-3-35, as required by all major telecommunications service providers.

Product Features

  • Test ferrule end faces and bulkheads compliant to IEC61300-3-35
  • Single-handed, one-button operation
  • Auto focus, auto-capture, auto test
  • LED pass/fail indicator on probe
  • Small form factor enables inspection of difficult-to-reach ports
  • Create and share reports on Android and iOS devices
  • IEC, IPC and user-defined inspection criteria
  • Wide range of adapter tips



  • Verify connector cleanliness before connecting
  • Certify connector condition on installation
  • Document connector damage when troubleshooting
  • Inspection is essential for proper fiber handling in all networks

Pass/fail results in seconds: With the press of a single button, the FIP100 auto-focuses, captures, centers and analyzes the end-face image to industry standard IEC 61300-3-35, IPC-8497-1, AT&T TP-76461 and other user-defined criteria.

Untethered operation: One-button operation and pass/fail LED indicator enables operation without reference to the mobile app.

Wide range of adapter tips: Interchangeable adapter tips support fiber connector inspection for a wide range of patch cords and bulkhead-mounted connectors having either PC/UPC or APC polished end-faces.

Smart Device Apps:

  • Auto focus, auto capture and auto test functions
  • IEC, IPC, industry standard, and user-defined inspection rules
  • Pinch-to-zoom fiber end-face images
  • Report generation
  • Multi-language Graphical User Interface (GUI)
  • Day/time stamped job saving
