Non-contact Visible Fault Location in fibre added to OZ Optics range

OZ Optics Non-contact VFLOZ Optics has expanded its range of Visible Fibre Optic Fault Locators with the addition of a benchtop non-contact tester, the ideal solution for inspecting devices with no connectors on the fibre ends. Visible Fibre Optic Fault Locators launch either 520 or 635 nm laser diode light into a fibre to enable discovery of breaks or sharp bends, which are revealed by the resulting scattered light emerging from the sides of the cable.

Fault locators are now available in four models: two benchtop and two portable…

  • Benchtop Non-Contact, for CW and pulsed operation
  • Benchtop CW High Power only
  • Portable pen – CW only
  • ‘Pocket size’ offering CW or pulsed output

Pulse modulation aids in locating faults under high ambient light conditions and improves battery life. 2 Hz modulation is easy to detect with the naked eye, while 270 Hz and 2 kHz pulse modulation modes are used for fibre identification by detectors.
