The OFI-BIPMe is a cousin to the previously introduced OFI-BIPM. It offers a lower price point for applications that do not require advanced PON functions such as the capability to detect ONTs.
The OFI-BIPMe features a positive-stop trigger mechanism to provide the amount of pressure that ensures proper detection while keeping loss to a minimum and traffic uninterrupted.
Additional features include a universal head that eliminates the need to change adapter heads, an integrated optical power meter, and a color touchscreen. The fiber identifier will work on standard and bend-insensitive single-mode and multimode fibers.
“Technicians use the OFI-BIPM platform for its world class signal detection sensitivity and ease-of-use,” explains Arun Jain, director of product marketing for AFL. “With the new OFI-BIPMe identifier, technicians will receive the same great features at a lower price.”
