Is anything special required to inspect a fiber with a metallic ferrule with my Viavi fiber inspection microscope? The fiber has a typical standard connector but the ferrule is metallic.
No special tip is required because the ferrule is metallic. You do need to select a metallic profile like E2000. If a new optical profile is needed, to fine tune viewing the fiber, then make a copy of the E2000 profile and make the adjustments there.
