Toronto, Canada â€“ GAO Instruments is offering its optical visual fault locator which is a basic tool for the maintenance of fiber optic networks, optical systems including LAN, FDDI and ATM, telecommunications and CATV networks.
This pen style optical visual fault locator, model C0280004, is commonly used in quickly verifying continuity, checking the validity of patch cables and locating faults in both single mode (SM) and multimode (MM) optical fibers.
This meter features pen-shaped design, small size and easy to carry. Powered by two 1.5 V AA alkaline batteries, it can operate for up to 80 hours with modulated light and up to 50 hours with continuous light.
This optical visual fault locator belongs to GAO’s family of Visual Fault Series which contains three similar products that is suitable for network maintenance. One is Rugged Handheld Visual Fault Locator which is widely used for fiber optic network maintenance in telecommunications and CATV systems and can be used for locating break points which an OTDR did not find. Another is Handheld Visible Laser Source which is used to find fiber faults and is suitable for single mode and multi mode fiber. It uses visible red light to indicate the location of fiber faults from a macro bend point, break, problem coupler or connector or a mechanical splice that is not well aligned.
