A battery-operated visible fault locator detects breaks, microbends and poor surface finishes in fiber-optic cables and connectors. Faults can be detected up to 5 km from the source. The locator can also be used as an end-to-end fiber identifier, or with mechanical or fusion splicers to minimize splice losses. Prices start at $475.
