October 6, 2008--JDSU's pocket-sized FFL-050 fiber fault locator and FFL-100 visual fault locators are designed for simplified troubleshooting of fiber-optic cabling, especially for FTTx installations. The tools are designed to quickly locate such problems as sharp bends, breaks, bad splices, lack of continuity, and fiber damage.

These fault locators emit a visible laser light into the fiber, and as the light escapes from the damaged points along the fiber in a continuous or flashing illumination, technicians can quickly diagnose, troubleshoot, and fix a problem.

The FFL-050 and FFL-100 VFL are equipped with a 2.5-mm interface, compatible with such connectors as SC, ST, and FC; a 1.25-mm adapter enables connection to LC and MU connectors. These VFLs can also be used to perform end-to-end continuity tests and fiber tracing and identification.
