Fiber Optic Visual Fault Locators

The fiber optic visual fault locator, or VFL is an essential tool for identifying problem areas in a run of fiber optic cable. It uses a 650nm laser to diagnose, troubleshoot, and resolve problems in an efficient manner. Fiber optic visual fault locators are commonly used to: detect breaks in the fiber, identify defective connectors, perform continuity checks, locate loss inducing bends, and optimize fiber splices.

For a cost efficient and effective solution, Primus Cable provides the Fiber Checker Pro (VFL) RoHS Compliant. Ideal for troubleshooting fiber cable, this fiber optic visual fault locator sends a visible 650nm wavelength red laser through fiber creating a bright glow around the faulty area. The universal connector can be used for the most common fiber interfaces such as ST/SC/FC/FDDA.

This fiber optic visual fault locator is suitable to test both single mode and multimode cables. With an optional 2.5mm to 1.25mm adapter, users can even test 1.25mm fiber cables.

To perform more detailed, comprehensive troubleshooting and fiber cable certification, Primus Cable offers the Fiber OWL 4 BOLT Auto-Wavelength Test Kit. It includes a power meter, light source, and fiber optic visual fault locator. This fiber optic test kit verifies single mode fiber at 1310nm and 1550nm. Auto-wavelength recognition and automatic data storage reduce testing time and human error, while the integrated fiber optic length tester checks for accurate link length measurements.

This fiber optic certifier stores up to 1,000 data points including: run labels, fiber type, and link information. It has a built in loss wizard to calculate the maximum allowable loss. The USB port expedites data logging, downloading, and report printing. The reporter software in this fiber optic certifier formats fiber certification reports for printing.

        Greenlee Item #: FB32-2230 -

          180XL Visual Fault Locator (VFL) Up to 7km The 180XL Visual Fault Locator from Greenlee is an indispensable tool for quickly identifying bending losses and breaks in optical fibers. It tests for continuity, breaks, macro-bends, and errors caused by dirty connectors. If a fiber is bent too tightly, red laser light will be seen escaping through the cable jacket. Likewise if a fiber is broken, escaping light will be visible where the break is located.
