The TREND Networks VFF5 projects a visible red light into a fibre optic cable to check continuity of cabling between termination points up to 5km (3m) (Read more)
The TREND Networks VFF5 is a battery-powered tool which projects a highly visible red light into a fibre optic cable to check continuity of cabling between termination points and to locate bends or breaks in fibres at splicing and termination points.
The VFF5 is useful over a distance of approximately 5km (3.1mi) into multi-mode fibre and single mode fibre. Use it as a stand-alone first-line basic troubleshooting tool, or in conjunction with an OTDR to pinpoint faults. Any breaks will be seen as a conspicuously glowing or blinking red light area (in 3mm or smaller cables).
The VFF5 is equipped with a high-power, day light visible 650nm laser diode which operates either in continuous or flashing mode. The design prevents battery drain due to accidental activation of the tool while inside a tool pouch.
Two AA batteries provide over 30 hours of operation in continuous mode and 80 hours of operation in flashing mode.
The unit is packaged in a pocket-sized, rugged metal housing and is fitted with 2.5 mm universal connector that accepts ST, SC and FC optical connectors.
