Handheld Visible Laser Source Accurately Detects Fiber Fault Positions

Toronto, CanadaGAO Instruments(www.GAOInstruments.com) is offering this handheld visible laser sourceused to find fiber faults in both single and multi mode fiber. The laser source overcomes the usual limitation of the dead zone of an OTDR to accurately detect fiber fault positions making it an ideal instrument for the installation and maintenance of optical networks.

This handheld visible laser source, model C0280003, features low voltage warning, auto power-off, simple button operation and an energy-saving design. This compact visible laser source operates at a wavelength of 650 nm ± 20 nm and is a perfect helper for use with an OTDR. It is equipped with FC, ST and SC adaptors and is also available for CW and 2 Hz alternative optical output modes.

This visible laser source 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. It can distinguish the faults in fiber jumpers, jumper boards, distribution frames and tie-ins. It is powered by a 9 V/160 mAh NI-MH rechargeable battery which provides continuous operation of 8 to 10 hours.

This handheld visible laser source belongs to GAO's family of Visual Fault Locators. Another featured product in this line is Optical Visual Fault Locatorwhich is commonly used in quickly verifying continuity, checking the validity of patch cables and locating faults in the continuity of both single mode (SM) and multimode (MM) optical fibers. GAO becomes the best choice with its good quality, specific features, multiple functions, and competitive prices. Most of our customers in North America such as Los Angeles, San Diego and Miami are satisfied with our products and our best services.
