How Does a Fiber Identifier Work?

Optical Fiber Identifier

Simply put, the fiber identifier uses a super low insertion loss local detection method of macro-bending. This allows for detection of the optical signals during installation and maintenance without disconnecting the fiber or interrupting the traiffic signal.

This macro-bending method eliminates the need to open the optical fiber at the splice point reducing the probability of interrupting service to your customer.

SYOPTEK’S OFI-201 Optical Fiber Identifier is an essential installation and maintenance instrument. By inserting the fiber into its adapter to avoid the opening of the fiber at the splice point for identification and thus avoids the interruptiion of the service. In the presence of traffic, the intermittently audible tone is activated. This optical fiber identifier also allows relative core power display and identification of the 270 Hz, 1k Hz, and 2k Hz frequencies. When they are used to detect the frequency, the continuously audible tone is activated. There are four adapter heads available: Φ0.25, Φ0.9, Φ2.0, Φ3.0
