Friday, June 26th, 2009

Toronto, Canada – GAO Instruments ( has announced the availability of its high performance optical fiber identifier, a compact and handy instrument specially designed for use in the construction and maintenance of fiber optic communication and optical CATV systems. The ruggedly built fiber identifier is used to identify multiple signal frequencies, display the intensity of optical signals and show the direction of optical transmission.

By means of low insertion loss testing technology, GAO Instruments’ model 6X practical fiber optic identifier accurately identifies optical signals in fibers with service running and avoids undo pressure on the fibers. This lightweight instrument identifies optical signals at wavelengths from 800 to 1700nm. It provides low power indication and works continuously for about eight hours on a full charge.
