OZ Optics Visible Fiber Optic Fault Locator

  • High Visibility
  • Continuous Light or Pulse Modulation
  • Compact, Rugged, and Lightweight


The Visible Fiber Optic Fault Locator launches 635 nm visible laser diode light into the fiber. When light encounters a break or sharp bend, it scatters, and the scattered light can be observed emerging from the cable. Fault locators can locate breaks in short patchcords, which an OTDR cannot detect due to their operating dead zone. A fault locator is also much less expensive than an OTDR. However, they are not recommended for use with dark-colored or armored cables.

Fault locators are available in three sizes: bench top, pocket size and pen size. The pocket size fault locators can be operated in either continuous wave (CW) mode or in pulse modulation mode. Pulse modulation aids in locating faults under high ambient light conditions and improves battery life. 2 Hz modulation is easy to detect by the naked eye, while 270 Hz and 2 kHz pulse modulation modes are used for fiber identification by detectors. The pocket size fault locator comes with a carrying pouch and belt clip. Pen size fault locators are CW only. High power versions are available as bench top units. These are CW only.
