Test equipment: High Power OFI-400HP Optical Fiber Identifier from AFL

Test equipment test and measurement equipment test products AFL OFI-400HP Optical Fiber Identifier

Test products: AFL’s rugged, hand-held and easy-to-use fiber optic test instrument is designed to detect and measure the core power levels of optical signals on single-mode optical fiber without disrupting traffic on that fiber. The OFI-400HP is simply clamped onto a fiber and indicates the presence and direction of traffic, CW signals and 270, 330, 1000 and 2000 Hz test tones. It allows technical personnel to unambiguously identify a specific fiber and eliminates the risk of accidental disruption of revenue service. NOYES OLS7, OLS2, CSS1-SM and CSS1-MM Optical Light Sources are ideal companions for the OFI-400HP.

NO ADAPTERS TO PURCHASE, STORE, SWAP OR MISPLACE
The OFI-400HP uses a unique optical head design featuring a 2-position plunger that enables it to be used with 2 mm and 3 mm jacketed fiber. Other brands of optical fiber identifiers require users to purchase, store and swap out optical plungers each time a different type of fiber is tested.

The OFI-400HP optical head induces a safe, repeatable macro-bend to the fiber that allows a small amount of light to escape for analysis. Thanks to the design of the optical head, the insertion loss induced by the macro-bend is too small to affect the signal on the fiber and the integrity of the fiber is unaffected by the measurement process.

NOYES OFI-400HP instruments are designed to be simple, easy-to-use and reliable. Each features and ergonomically-designed macro-bend trigger that is comfortable to use. An integrated, backlit display allows the OFI-400HP to be used in dimly lit spaces. Powered by 2 1.5V AAA batteries, the OFI-400HP can make thousands of fiber tests before needing battery replacement.
