Pen Style Optical Visual Fault Locator Suited for Field Operation

Toronto, Canada - GAO Fiber Optics (www.GAOFiberOptics.com) recommends its optical visual fault locator used in quickly verifying continuity, checking the validity of patch cables and locating faults in the continuity of both single mode (SM) and multimode (MM) optical fibers.

This handheld optical visual fault locator, model C0280004, is a basic tool for the maintenance of fiber optic networks, optical systems including LAN, FDDI and ATM, telecommunications and CATV networks. It has a 650 nm visible laser source that transmits continuous light or a 1 Hz adjustable strobe light into a fiber allowing the user to visually detect a fiber fault over distances of up to 9 km. The fault detector operates for up to 80 hours with modulated light and up to 50 hours with continuous light using two 1.5 V AA alkaline batteries.

This easy to use optical visual fault locator belongs to GAO's family of Visual Fault Locators. Two other featured products in this line are Rugged Handheld Visual Fault Locator which detects breaks and micro-bends through jacketed fiber and performs an end-to-end fiber identification easily, and Handheld Visible Laser Source which overcomes the usual limitation of the dead zone of an OTDR to accurately detect fiber fault positions making it an ideal instrument for the installation and maintenance of optical networks.
