The KI6350 series Visual Fault Locators are used to test all fiber types, up to a range of around 5 ~ 7 Km. A fiber fault or loss point can be easily located since it emits a bright red light. Continuity testing of a fiber is simply achieved by looking for red light1 coming out of the fiber bundle. Alternatively a fiber route can be confirmed by bending a patch lead so red light leaks out of the patch lead.
This simple tool is useful on short links, or on a long link with an OTDR, since an OTDR is not precise.
The universal connector adapter is suitable for 1.25 mm or 2.5 mm fiber optic connectors, and the ceramic alignment sleeve ensures durable operation.
The KI 6351 is ruggedly constructed from metal. It has an IP67 environmental rating, and can withstand dust, humidity, and immersion in 1 m of water. One year warranty is standard, the equipment complies with Class 2 laser safety standards.
