IDEAL Networks VFF5


Fiber Optic Cable Visual Fault Finder


The minimum purchase order quantity for the product is 5.


The IDEAL Networks VFF5 Fiber Optic Cable Visual Fault Finder is a hand-held, battery-powered tool. The VFF5 projects a highly visible red light into a fiber optic cable, used to check the continuity of cabling between termination points and to locate bends or breaks in fibers at splicing and termination points.

The VFF5 is useful over a distance of approximately 5km (3.1mi) into multimode and single-mode fibers. 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-powered, daylight visible 650 nm laser diode which operates either in continuous or flashing mode. This design prevents battery drain due to accidental activation of the tool while inside of a tool pouch.

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. Two AA batteries provide over 30 hours of operation in continuous mode and 80 hours of operation in flashing mode.
