Estimate the length of a fiber run and overall attenuation rate with aFiber OTDR Tester. These handy devices can locate faults, such as breaks in optical fiber runs up to several miles in length. This type of Fiber Tester has extensive computing power and an easy to read graphical display. OTDR test reports can also be saved in case of future fiber failures.
If you are troubleshooting a fiber network, Fiber Savvy also suppliesVisual Fault Locators (VFLs)to diagnose problems quickly. The VFL emits a red beam that is passed through a run of fiber to locate faults. It can also be used to identify a single fiber optic cable within a bundle. Common application tests include detecting fiber breaks, detecting defective connectors, continuity checks, and finding loss inducing bends.
Fiber Testers with optical power meters are used to measure the power of a fiber optic signal. Fiber Savvy offersOptical Power Metersand light sources; typically, a calibrated sensor, a measuring amplifier, and a display are included. Power meters are calibrated using a traceable calibration standard, such as NIST standard. The display unit shows measured optical power and set wavelength.
