Visual Fault Locator Locates Fault up to 5km in Fiber

Toronto, Canada (PressExposure) January 08, 2010 -- GAO Fiber Optics ( has announced the availability of its visual fault locator [] which conducts tests in both single mode and multi-mode fibers. The fault locator is commonly used for applications in telecommunication, LAN, WAN, fiber data links and CATV systems. It is also an ideal solution for examining most patch cords and ribbons or bunched pigtails in the installation and maintenance of fiber optic networks.

This portable visual fault locator, model 08211, supports end-to-end visual fiber identification and mechanical fusion splice optimization. It easily identifies the cutting, micro-bending of the optic fiber through the jacket fiber and provides a maximum measurement distance of 5km. The 650nm visible laser source emits a bright beam of laser light into a fiber to allow users to see a break as a glowing or blinking red light. In addition, the rugged locator offers a FC optical connector and a universal 2.5mm adaptor; it works continuously for 30 hours when it is fully charged.
