The ODM VF-610 Visual Fault Locator comes with a 2.5mm universal adapter which can accommodate most standard connector types such as SC, FC and ST. The VFL is a 1 milliwatt, 635nm red laser. It has an easy to use on/off button and features 2Hz modulation. A low battery indicator is conveniently located on the front of the VFL to inform the operator of when it is time to replace the CR2 3V battery.
The VFL is used for tracing individual fibers for identification as well as detecting continuity faults in the fiber at short ranges. VFLs are typically used with short cables such as those used in telco contral offices to connect to the fiber optic trunk cables. It is complimentary to OTDRs for troubleshooting optical cable because the VFL is usable in the Dead Zone, the short range where OTDRs can not detect issues. This application works on buffered fiber and jacketed single fiber cable where the jacket is not opaque to visible light. Detects cable breaks, macrobending losses due to kinks, bad patch cords, poor splices, etc.
