JDSU’s hand-held optical fiber identifier FI-10 probe is a rugged, easy-to-use installation and maintenance instrument which identifies optical fibers by detecting the optical signals being transmitted through a single mode fiber. By utilizing local detection technology (non-destructive macro-bend detection), the unit eliminates the need to open the fiber at the splice point for identification; eliminating the probability of interrupting service.
Signals detected by the FI-10 include continuous wave (CW), live optical transmission, and low frequency modulated tones at 270, 1000 and 2000 Hz.
When traffic is present on the fiber tested, the direction of transmission is indicated by LEDs illuminating on the probe.
During maintenance, installation, rerouting, or restoration it is often necessary to isolate a specific fiber from a bundle without disrupting service. By simply clamping the FI-10 onto a fiber, the unit will indicate if there is no signal, a 270, 1000 or 2000 Hz tone, or traffic and show signal direction.
The FI-10 has the widest environmental operating range of any optical fiber identifier on the market today.
