Product Description

HiLite Miniature Visual Fault Identifier

The HiLite visible red laser source from AFL is designed to troubleshoot faults on fibre optic cables. Light generated by these units will escape from sharp bends and breaks in jacketed or bare fibres, as well as poorly mated connectors. They can quickly identify faults in fibre optic jumper cables, distribution frames, patch panels, and splice trays.

 

FACT: Many fibre network defects occur within the first few meters – within typical OTDR dead zones.

 

HiLite is an excellent complement to any OTDR because it can locate faults inside the OTDR’s dead zone. Other applications include end-to-end continuity checks, as well as identifying connectors in patch panels and fibres during splicing operations. The universal connector interface mates with many connector styles without needing an adapter.

 

Trace cables in crowded or un-documented setups. A HiLite is a quick means of finding the “other end” from amongst cluttered cables. Simply connect to one end and look for the visible red light transmitted out the opposite connector.

 

Fibre Coupled Lasers for Best Test Results

HiLite units deliver 1 mW of output power into 9/125 single-mode fibre to ensure long range and exceptional brightness for locating defects in both single-mode and multimode fibres.

 

Universal Connector Interface

HiLite units use a threaded connector adapter interface to support tool-free adapter removal for connector cleaning and field changing of adapter styles. Universal connector adapters offer quick connection and test to single ferrule connectors such as FC, SC, ST, LC, MU, and more.

 

  • 2.5 mm adapter accepts PC and angled connectors FC, SC, ST, etc.
  • 1.25 mm adapter accepts LC and MU connectors.

 

A HiLite Visible Fault Identifier (VFI) -- or Visual Fault Locator (VFL) -- is an essential tool for fibre installation and maintenance technicians.
