(businesspress24) - Building on FiSpy''s growing reputation, FS:Detect enables operators and their network construction partners to quickly identify the exact location of faults or failed fibre installation.

Hawick, Scotland, June 11, 2018 - Emtelle, a leading provider of blown fibre and ducted network solutions for the telecoms industry, has added FS:Detect to its product range to create an innovative integrated kit designed to pinpoint damage and deliver error-free microduct selection in fibre networks, significantly reducing costly repairs and installation time.

Developed by New Zealand-based FiComms, the FiSpy kit consists of two complementary hand tools. FS:Select, also known as FiSpy, can be used to accurately identify the damaged microduct, eliminating the risk of incorrect selection and cutting of ducts which may have live services in them. This ensures disruption and damage is kept to a minimum, while allowing repairs to be easily carried out and new fibre to be installed.

Operators can then use the FS:Detect, which uses a blowable, traceable wire, that can be blown up to 500m, to detect damage to ducts or microducts within a tube bundle or microduct fibre environment. The cable is designed to stop when it hits any damage or impingement, which can then be traced using a standard CAT scanner and generator to pinpoint the exact area of damage.

"The addition of FS:Detect to our range creates a complete kit which should cover all potential microduct connectivity issues, with the operation expense saving being so great that FiSpy will have paid for itself after just three uses when you take multiple civil engineers'' activities into account," said Colin Kirkpatrick, European Sales Director at Emtelle. "As the original blown fibre manufacturer, with 25 years of experience and expertise in blown fibre tubing, we are committed to minimising project costs, installation time and disruption to services - and that is exactly what the FiSpy kit enables."

The combination of the FS:Select and the FS:Detect into one integrated kit can enable the detection of microducts with no individual colour identification, guaranteeing an error-free selection of faulty or failed fibre installations.

The newly developed kit can be supplied in up to 1,000m lengths and has a minimum bend radius of 21mm, making it agile enough for any field deployment scenario. While maintaining a compact, handheld portable design to ensure high-user friendliness and easy transportation.

"The reaction to the launch of FiSpy earlier this year has been incredibly positive and when we saw an opportunity to widen its capabilities and create a complete, all-round solution, we knew we had to take it," said Sean Rainthorpe, CEO of FiComms. "The full FiSpy kit not only allows operators to select the microduct where there is a fault but enables exact detection of where the fault is in the microduct, helping them get their customers back online quickly - which is incredibly important as demand for "

The combined capabilities of Emtellet, giving visitors a first-hand glimpse at its revolutionary capabilities.

The FiSpy kit will join Emtelle''s full portfolio of blown fibre and ducted solutions on display at ANGA COM 2018, in Cologne, Germany, at stand G60, from Tuesday, June 12 to Thursday, June 14.
